Port au Prince Haiti shipping port

May 12, 2010

This is where the wheechairs will come in. The main crain (or whatever it is called) was destroyed in the earthquake. Smaller cranes are being used. The process is slower. I am guessing when the first wheelchair container arrives in Port Au Prince at port that it will take a number of days to get the ship from in line to dock to unload.

The conditions around the ports are dirty. Many living on the streets, in tents, in tin cities. Trash lining the streets until it is burned. Mud/water in the streets from end to end where one has to cross before entering their living quarters.

Yet, life goes on. Everyone is doing their best to make a living to feed their families and theirselves.
