[QUOTE=out side of the capital life is more low key but it has it's own problems and people don't seem to want to get out of that situation, they seem to frown upon people who succeed and so every body more or less stays at the same level, very poor.[/QUOTE]

I would second that opinion. Haiti is a different place. You cannnot judge it from your position in the US/Europe/Canada daily life. There are very few property rights laws, so no one sees the value in which we place value (homes, buildings, etc). Everyone that I met was very friendly. No hesitation in inviting you into their home. But, politics there has been exercised through gangs and corruption.

Traveling around Haiti I never felt in danger. But, I travel in different situations than most.
