Life is busier here… fuller. This fact surprises me as I thought it would be a slower paced life. The difference is, things take so much longer to do. There are always people around and something going on. Downtime can be hard to come by at times. So when we get a chance to go to the beach, we take it! The funny thing is, even at the beach we don’t truly get downtime. There are constant people around, Haitian kids playing with our kids and their toys and asking for food or money. I still have to think and speak in Creole! But we do get a chance to relax a little and have some good playtime with the kids.
The weather this February has been absolutely beautiful. This day was no exception! Remind me of this day in a few months when I am drenched in sweat by 8 AM.
