2/28 Flight from Indianapolis to Miami yesterday afternoon was good. Incredible view of Miami as the plane made a round sweep over the Atlantic to land in Miami. 2.5 from INDY to MIA, 1.0 hr wait for the luggage.
Met with Reggie DesRoches, EERI recon team leader, and most of the team members over dinner. Everybody is in good spirit.
Learnt that I will be staying in the Pacot area apartment, on Rue S Chocotte, downtown area. ASCE TCLEE team will be in the same building; so will be about half of the EERI recon team. The rest will be in another apartment in Petionville district on the east. Checkout the great street maps of Port-au-Prince at http://openstreetmap.org/ .
Had to do last minute shopping (binder broke!). Taxi driver was from Haiti! Very nice man. I write more about what he said later.
Now at the Miami International airport. Two carry-ons; camera counts as third -- otherwise everything is smooth. American Airlines plane is set to take off in an hour. I shall add updates whenever I can from PaP. I am told that Internet access should be available but intermittently. We will all see. Until then.
