My Haiti Kanaval Plans have been Cancelled, Wait till you find out why!

I have Good News and I have Bad News... You want to know how I am spending my Valentines Day today? This Valentines Day story has sad written all over it!


Kanaval 2008 Day 1 Defile Photo

I was supposed to be in Haiti today, since 12:10PM, to cover carnival in haiti live BUT guess what happened?

I am still in Miami... and I am heading back to Palm Bay instead of Haiti.

I am not going to Haiti Kanaval anymore... Well I cannot go anymore...

Why? Let make you laugh.

I arrived in Miami late last night after a 3 hour ride; I woke up this morning to go to the airport, Miami International Airport. I was lucky enough to book a last minute flight to Haiti for Kanaval on American Airlines because All Flights to Haiti are sold out for Kanaval season.

On my way to airport I was laughing at my brother in law, Danny, because he is freezing in New York, unable to go to kanaval.

"My brother is on his way to Jacmel," he says, "and my sister is flying in next week. I am so sad because I cannot go to Haiti Kanaval."

Imagine his sadness when I told him: "Well buddy, guess what? I am on my way to Miami International Airport, and my private jet, American Airlines, is waiting for me."

To add pain to misery, I revealed another secret to him: "There's more," I said, "I am being picked up at the airport and I am heading to straight to Les Cayes for Kanaval 'Aux Cayes' until Monday."

Let me tell you, he was devastated. And I like to do it too... Brush it in their face when I am about to have fun and they cannot.

I am telling you all of this... SO... What am I still doing in Miami?

That's the bad news...

I arrive at the airport, two hours before departure time, I am waiting in line like every good citizen.

I get to the ticket counter, and the agent asks me, "Sir can I have your passport please?"

That when I realized that my passport is 3 hours away, in my safe...

I cannot go to Haiti for Kanaval because I left my passport at home.

I cant even change my reservation because every flight to Haiti is booked until March.

Who's laughing now?

Now I have to watch Haiti Kanaval ONLINE just like you.

You are obviously a non traveler.

No one goes to the airport for an International flight without a passport.

For making such a stupid mistake, you don't even deserve to watch it on
