#1088: fear of Haiti? Fonda comments
From: Dave Fonda <email@example.com>
I was in P-au-P about three weeks ago; on a Friday evening at dusk it started to rain heavily and taxišs were impossible to find, the tap-taps already full. Finally, fed-up and soaked, I gave up and walked from MLK and Jean Paul Deux to Delmas 75, a distance of maybe two miles (?).
Through most of my walk it was dark, I ended up straying away from MLK onto side streets, and I was carrying several thousand dollars worth of photographic equipment. I never once felt the least bit uncomfortable.
Well, OK, I was plenty uncomfortable..... I was soaked to the skin! But other than the numerous quizzical looks and the occasional amused comment about the crazy blan, I could have been taking a walk through my own suburban neighborhood.
Certainly, this is not a walk that Išd under-take for pleasure, but I did feel comfortable enough to make it and would do so again if required. Sure, Port is a major metropolis and, like any other such city, there are areas where I would not have walked alone in the dark, but on the whole Išve found it as safe as any major US city.
