haitiiiii

Recommended Posts

So, I am leaving for Haiti on Saturday. I'll be there for a good amount of time. I was wondering if any of you guys have been there and can tell me places I need to see, any experiences, any food I should try.. that kind of stuff. I know it's not really a hot spot to travel, but maybe a couple of you have been there.

 

Yeahhh, and if you can give me any travel safety tips for a female in a corrupt place, lemme know hahah. :D

Why don't you go to the other side of the island and have a good time at a resort?

 

Channel Zero folk sure do like to travel to some weird destinations

I want to move to D.R. and learn ghetto spanish.

 

Not that that helps you, I just wanted to let the world know.

My friend went there with his wife. He said it was crazy. That's all.

Be careful.

 

My friends family lived there in the late 80's early 90's. All he told me he remembered was gunfire on the regular and that his house security guard was murdered in front of his house...RIP.

 

BTW are you going for work or play.

My boy's dad has been trying to get us to go there with him for years, I think 2010 is the year to finally get on that

I'd get on that, Dominican girls hands down have the best asses on the planet.

Plus it's cool to travel with/visit someone who knows local stuff instead of sticking to the tourist bullshit.

I'm sayin'. I've been checking out some of the intensive Spanish programs where you stay with a host family and all that jazz.

 

They look good and aren't overly expensive, but I don't think the host family would take me to the right club to meet teh ladies and get wasted/not get beat up and robbed.

hah!

 

Really though...

I only know of one person who's gone to Haiti and had anything decent to say about it. Homeboy stayed in Jacmel on the South side of the island. He did bring back a lot of interesting pictures. I really doubt you're going to get any inside knowledge from the oontz set on this one.

 

Google is your friend.

Grew up with Haitians and my next door neighbors are a Haitian family.

My ex roommate (white boy) went there for a couple of days to pick up his crazy mother and his his granmother who has Alzheimer's cuz they got in to some crazy situation where the bf of the mother was extorting them. some gutter type shit!

Some real heavy stuff, i feel bad for my boy.

All this to say that i only heard bad things about it.

I hope everything works out for you!

Take flicks, start a thread.

Definitely worst place in the western hemisphere from what I know and filled with AIDS.

Not to say it wouldn't be an experience and there aren't any good people there.

I'd watch out though and bring porn and lotion, Haitian AIDS must eat through latex like acid.

7.3 according to dom rep news. my wife and our daughter is in dom rep right now (she's from puerto plata.) i was on the phone with her and in the middle of the conversation she's like "ohhhh shit there's an earthquake!!" then the phones went down and i didnt hear from them for 15min (longest 15min of my life) wifey's internet jus came back so she told me what happened on i.m. i guess it didnt hit d.r. too hard but haiti got rocked. my daughter was napping at the time i guess she didnt even wake up from the earthquake only commotion in the streets after it was done. there's also a tsunami watch on the north coast of domrep. i've never been over the border to haiti, but i've heard it gets pretty real over there. my wife's dad said they eat dirt cookies and rotting goat heads with worms crawling in them. like they literally make cookies from dirt, animal fat, and sugar.

 

edit: update from wifey i guess the skies in haiti are full of dust they say it looks like katrina over there. (even more than it normally does)

Strong quake hits Haiti, hospital collapses

"Everybody is just totally, totally freaked out and shaken," said Henry Bahn, a U.S. Department of Agriculture visiting Haiti. "The sky is just gray with dust."

 

How long are you planning on staying there?
