On a lighter note, the other tour we took was the San-Souci palace that was built in the early 1800. Wikipedia has a good article about it here.
It was about a mile or mile and a half from the hospital. I went with three other women and our two Haitian tour guides. It occurred to me while we were at the palace that I had just done something that I would never do here in the States. I was in a remote area with no American male, no weapon, no idea how to contact the police or hospital if we had an emergency with two Haitian male tour guides that I had know for a few hours. I did have two nurses with me. I felt totally safe the entire time. The Haitian guides were thankful for the work we were doing and they wanted us to return to Haiti with our husbands and stay for a while. As I said my goodbyes to one of the guides, he told me that he would pray for me. When's the last time someone that you did business with here told you that?
This is the front of the hospital. They were able to perform some complicated surgeries and they had the ability to do lab work and x-rays, but there were things about it that we rather primitive. For example, they kept a fly-swatter in the ICU to swat the flies in the ICU. That is unheard of here.
This is a the Catholic church near the palace. Services are still held there.
