Staying in Haiti, a huge bill over 8 days...

Alexa - December 16 2017, 4:55 PM

That is so true! Between December 2016 and July 2017, I made four stays in the Motherland where I'm trying to have some activities that would help the people.

The hotels where I've stayed cost $104, 88, 70 and 68 dollars a night.

For 8 days, it makes for a big bill.

Food may be reasonably priced @ $4.50, 5 a meal when you eat in, but if they have no kitchen, and one eats at the restaurant at the corner, it may come to $8.00 all in USD.

Add the cost of private carfare, and That's a huge bill over 8 days.
