Empty streets in PaP

Protests broke out last night in Port au Prince after the official
election results were announced. Supporters of mr. Martelly put up
fires on every streetcorner and blocked the streets with rubble and
trashcontainers. Even the TapTaps stayed in their garages.

It's my first quiet day in PaP. Normaly the noise is overwhelming, a
bit simular to the streets of New York but then mixed with crowing
roosters and barking dogs.

A good day to do some grocery shopping in the neighbourhood. I bought
some pasta, mango's, chadec and pouyak.

And I looked at a car again: a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder, 150.000 miles.
Price: 11.500 USD.

I found one in the US for 2.200 USD.

Welcome to Haiti.
