    Try the Oasis Hotel in Port-au-Prince. Showtime in Haiti once more.

    Nothing more than a Bar-B-Q by the locals.

    This is typical of why Haiti continues to take one step forward and two steps back.

    They were listing all of the church groups stuck in the country... I think if the church groups would donate their trip money to pay for gas for Haitians, we could cut out half of the flights daily to Haiti, reducing greenhouse gasses as well.

    Is the market in dajabon where they sell the stuff people donate to them, still going to be open this Friday???

    (I'm a little jaded)

    Fuel prices go up and people riot, burning and destroying what little they had in the first place.

    Or is this just more political skullduggery, inciting rioots?

    I agree that the destruction solves nothing, but those fuel price rises, between 38 and 51%, would be met with protests anywhere in the world!
