A diet of Gatorade, Saltines, and Cipro…Yummy!

  That’s the diet that I had yesterday as I was extremely sick. My stomach has not been well all week long, but yesterday it took a turn for the worse. I couldn’t hold anything down. I woke up feeling miserable and it got progressively worse within an hour. So, I had to begin a series of antibiotics (Cipro), which I really don’t like to take because that itself causes stomach pains. Anyway, I was laid up in bed all day long sipping on Gatorade, nibbling on saltines, and popping the Cipro…not a fun day at all. And I also had a fever of 101. So, today was spent in St Marc again with my broker trying to negotiate a fair price to get our container out of customs. I guess we got a “good deal” even though my bank account doesn’t seem to think so. Moving and living here is so much more expensive than we anticipated. When all is said and done, the total cost for sending our vehicle and container here and getting it through customs will be close to $10,000. Ouch!!! You would think that it is cheap to live in Haiti since it is one of the poorest countries in the world…that is definitely not the case.

  1. So sorry to hear that you’re sick and hope you feel better soon! We will continue to pray for low customs taxes!
