It was another world. We traveled outside the city of Port Au Prince, a one-and-a-half hour drive. It seemed like we were on another continent. It felt like a different planet. Our experience was totally new from last year, when we lived in the earthquake-ravaged capital city.
Our trip to the village of Merceron was a total shock. Women carried water in buckets on their heads. The burros in the village carried rice, beans, bananas, potatoes and sugar cane from the fields.
