Transportation

It works a little differently in Haiti. There are no seat belt laws-or even seat laws really. Since you really need a truck to get around with more than two people, and for further than a few miles, that is what is used. Some are regular trucks, others are army trucks. They have to be able to navigate narrow streets, roll over large rocks, go through rivers and huge puddles, and carry lots of people, or shipments. Then they just nail wood into the bed on the truck for seats. So, this is how we get around Haiti. A picture is just an easier way to explain…..

The secret to not flying off the sides is to throw luggage on each others feet, and hold on tight!
