On Wednesday we headed up with another group to Hinche, the capital of Haiti’s Central region. It’s basically a large market-town: the produce from all the little farming communities tucked away in the surrounding mountains ends up here and then goes to Port-au-Prince on a lovely paved road recently constructed by the European Union.
We’re staying at St. Andre’s, an Episcopalian church that also runs a school with 1000 kids. It’s summer vacation now, but there’s still a lot of work to be done getting the computer room ready, making sure the server’s working, and training the staff in how to use Linux computers.
Here’s some shots from our walk around town. As you can see, the streets seem fairly empty – that’s because you need to leave the space open for the big trucks that come through carrying goods to and from elsewhere.
