Glad to hear he made it back, hopefully in good health.

In for a recount of the experience from someone with more ***** and less obligations than myself.

He just got in touch with me. He's been sick as a dog. He's doing better. We'll talk about it in the coming days here.

Crazy experience, i can't even type the things i saw with my own eyes over the internet. Saw some of the most disgusting things human beings had to live in. I got sick on Friday night, was throwing up for a solid 9 hours or so. Diarrhea like no other, in fact i'm still peeing out of my ***.

I am glad i went, as scared as i was i am glad. The little "donate a dollar for Haiti" bull **** in safeways and local grocery stores aren't helping at all. About 50% of the plane was full of volunteers/doctors and military personals from various country's. These people are the ones helping the country out.

One of the camps i went too had aprox 7,000 Haitians in a size about the size of a football field or two. I can't really remember because i was looking through the lens and tearing up at the conditions these people had to live in. There was a lady who was washing her ***** or shots in muddy water while sitting in mud in 85* heat who replied to me "better than ever" when i asked how she was. She was so happy to just be alive and living. It really brings life into perspective for someone to see something like this.

I could go on for hours rambling on about the culture and how touched i was but i doubt any of you want to even hear it. Anyways, on to the pictures since i know we all like those.














This picture was taken in the compound i was staying in that taught children english and had some art classes:

These were off my personal camera, so the shots from the really sad camp will come later when i meet with my friend who funded the trip. I was using my canon 550D with a 50 1.8 and 10-22EFS lens. His shots were all on a 7D w/ 24-105L or one of my lenses.

Sad sad stuff.

I'm really glad you went and I'm glad you made it back safely. You should go to the doctor. You may have caught something that requires something more than just waiting it out. All sorts of nasty bugs out there...

The pictures of the children are wonderful.

Atleast you didn't have to run from the bad guys with your new ACL. Looks like a memorable experience, very good photos too.
