I got an offer to be a camera man for a documentary in Haiti, all expenses paid, once in a lifetime experience type of deal.

How unsafe is it in Haiti now?

I'd expect Rafa to jump in on this conversation. If he doesn't, just PM and ask. He's in the DR but might have some good insight as to what's really going on over there.

did you watch the season finale of House? that's maybe a worst case scenario if you assume you get an infection too.

I'd do it. I've applied to multiple jobs that would deploy me to Iraq or Afghanistan. Granted I do IT and would just stay on base. The jobs pay like 150-170k, might as well get paid while the getting is good.

Once in a lifetime things happen once in a lifetime.

This.

It might be bad, but it wouldn't be bad enough to stop me from giving it a shot. It's a once in a lifetime thing like you said, why not go for it.

You're stupid if you DONT do it. Just be really careful with the machetes, the mob, and the disease you might encounter.

Safety is over-rated.
