Day Four in Haiti:
Due to gas shortages we walked EVERYWHERE. I feel like I walked 10 miles today. This is what we did:
Church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints – and I bore my testimony in Haitian Kreyol to the congregation, which I am sure was amusing, but they seemed grateful that I tried!)
Market (no refrigeration so this is done daily)
Napped (I rarely do this and it was heavenly, though I napped on the porch without a net, so a few mosquitos snacked on me)
Gas (lines were hours long)
Organized the upstairs volunteer and midwife area. (Think Maria Kondo and Feg Shui)
Baked a chocolate cake for Rose’s Birthday. (We walked forever to find two boxes of cake mix. Like FOREVER).
Had a birthday celebration for Rose.
Talked and talked to discuss problems and solutions here at MamaBaby.
Took a cold shower that felt amazing.
Worked on my computer answering emails and writing until past 3am while all the volunteers and midwives are asleep.
Tomorrow is a big day and I may need an afternoon nap since I will only get a few hours of sleep! Good night world.
