|Russian Olive Trees in their Springtime Bloom - gorgeous...but invasive|
Frightened because...well...it's Haiti. A third world nation where 55% of the people are illiterate. Where far too many of the people are hungry. Where 80% of the population live below the poverty line - and live on $2.00 a day. Where the devastation from the 2010 earthquake remains far from fixed. There the devastation from hurricanes barely get fixed before the next disaster strikes. Where cholera is epidemic. Where there is no reliable mail system, so whatever Rem will need these next few months, she had to take with her yesterday.
With all that said, the organization she will be with is highly thought of and I really do feel quite secure about her being there. We've been bugging her about creating a blog so we can all keep up with her adventures. I let you in on it's link if she does.
it's all good!
