Haitian Connection

Occasionally one of the Haitian freight boats will stop in Hope Town to pick up whatever has been collected in the local Haitian community, and continue on its way to Haiti. This boat was a bit scary to think that after today, it will be totally loaded up (including the roof) and head out to sea. Water was pouring out of the bilges and the engine was smoking.

However, these boats are heavily built on the beaches of Haiti, and they are used to the trip and adversity. We wish them a safe journey.
