So many times these baggage handlers are rude, I once gave a man 5 dollars US he felt it was too little he wanted more and 5 dollars would be 40+ haitian dollars.

I love my country I got back home every month by the time I landed to go home to Leogane I ended up spending close to 12-15 dollars US from paying 2.00 dollars US for a cart to carry my luggage, tipping the baggage handlers and the people asking you money and sometimes you look at these people you can't help to give them some cash.
