The island of Hispaniola, "discovered" by Columbus on his first voyage, is shared by Haiti on the west & the Dominican Republic on the east.
Gonaïves is a major city about a 4-hr drive north of Port-au-Prince.

The team converging late Friday night at Denver airport. .. We have lots of checked luggage for our meds and supplies.
Hanging out at the Miami airport for a while, actually a long while due to delays.
At last, good-bye Miami. ..Note five large cruise ships at dock.
A few of us scored first class seats, which allowed having three bags checked free and thus cheaper overall.
Close to landing in Port-au-Prince.
Hoping to reclaim all our bags.
Time to load up our bus.
Jim is always "on top" of everything! :)
That's me upfront holding the camera.
Sunset is upon us.
Opps - stuck in a long backup due to a major accident ahead. Eventually we had to turn around.
Ben getting us a best price at the Club Indigo ...
... and a late great dinner. ..[This where we'll be staying our last night before flying home.]
Up early Sunday morning.
We'll make another attempt at getting to Gonaïves.
This was the problem on the road - a tanker truck explosion.
