We had a spell of bad weather last week that shut down camp for half a day. Tropical Storm Emily came through Wednesday night and Thursday. We had some heavy rains and wind, but thankfully not a lot of damage around here. Hopefully there won’t be any more this summer as many people are still living in tents and make-shift housing since the earthquake. A serious tropical storm or hurricane could be devastating.
Compared to the Cange camp, Jacmel is extremely hot- today was around 100. But we get by and sometimes get to go to the beach to cool off. We’ve also had some time to walk around Jacmel checking out the market, restaurants and some of the artisan shops. On Sunday some of the volunteers went to Bassin Bleu- a two hour walk up a mountain to the most beautiful waterfall I’ve ever seen. This weekend it looks like our Sunday adventure will be boating to a place called “La Baguette” to try an infamous tuna sandwich- Janet says it’s the best she’s ever had.
More in a week or so - till then take care!
