Today was quite the adventure. We went to drop off some meds in the Cite Soleil clinic, and we also took several boxes of toys to the school there for Christmas presents for the kids. After we were done there, we drove up the mountain. Our first stop was Baptist Mission. I had only been there once before, and it was closed. It was cool to see the stuff they have. That is where we ate lunch. I had an excellent steak and cheese sandwich. It was way better than I thought it would be. I think I will be going there again so I can have another. The only sad part was that the bakery didn't have any cinnamon rolls made. I guess I really have to go back soon for cinnamon rolls, and I might as well get another steak sandwich while I'm there. That's gonna be rough. After the Baptist Mission, we went further up into the mountains. Bmb knows a family that lives way up there that had potential Christmas trees. In the picture is the owner of the land. He had just cut that tree for us. He cut it about 4 feet up, and above some of the branches. The problem was that they live in this steep valley that we had to walk down into. The tree isn't exactly small, but the guys son said he would carry it out for us. They got the tree tied up so the branches weren't hanging down, and then the kid carried the tree out on his head. It's the Haitian way. He even ran some down some steep parts. Forrest and I were in awe of this guy. It was a pretty amazing location though. I got some good pictures. We haven't set the tree up yet, because it was kinda late when we got back. That will be my project in the morning.
