Top 10 Ways to Know I am Back Home in Haiti...

10.  I have used a restroom while 2 ladies were cleaning it.
9.  I am sweating buckets
8.  Smiles are everywhere and everyone is giving me hugs.
7. The internet is really, really, really slow.  I have already been fighting for 2 hours to find a problem, that may or may not even be the cause.
6.  I am using Creole, and although I don't know why, I have a new sense of desire to use it more.  Cool.
5. Cockadoodle do, bark bark bark, cluck cluck cluck, and meeh meeh (goat) are constantly in the background.
4. I am drinking like a fish (water in case you were wondering)
3. I've taken a cold shower, not on purpose. (Propane tanks are empty so no hot water)  I don't care how hot it is, a cold shower first thing in the morning is about my least favorite thing in life.
2.  There is dust and smoke and more dust everywhere.
1.  I am TOTALLY at peace and have a real sense of hope, urgency, and excitement about the work we are doing.  If I haven't mentioned it yet, I am so excited!
