Post # 5, Garbage is a problem.
Joetta was driving us back to the OMS compound after dinner. These 3 gate columns were built by the French around 1700 and marked the entrance into Cap Haitian. This is Sunday about 2:30pm.
We are following tap-taps through town. Notice the open storm ditch and the garbage in it. They have no sewer system, no street lights, no garbage pick-up etc..
The garbage lays in windrows along the street like this. Goats and cattle and dogs and rats etc. eat off it. Can you imagine the smell in the heat of Summer? We drove along this right after eating Dinner.
