I have limited experience with containers in haiti.

its the only time in my life I paid a "bribe".

I put bribe in quotes becuase its my understanding that the customs official you are talking too may not have been paid in a while ...he and his family have to eat. being new to the whole thing and they were so nice I asked what would be good and they replied " its up to the generosity of your own heat. I paid $250 usd to get a container released but be careful.

DON'T TRY TO SEND COMPUTERS ELECTRONICS.

haiti has no income tax and tariffs on diffrent products can vary wildly and as always with haiti if they think you got it they will try to get it. I dont mean to say that as a pejorative.

what would you do if your family was hungry
