My friend Woodring, you are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

Few people would have ever thought of this, and even though I learned my Haitian geography in elementary for as it is known to be very mountainous land, I had never perceived it like this either (Truth is I do not know Dominican Republic, yet).

This has to be the main cause of the bad infrastructures in Haiti.

Anyway, I believe that you are definitely not the first one to have raised that concern but none of us can really do a thing unless Haitian governments acknowledge it and try ways to overcome those challenges by using state-of-the-art technologies (with international aids, of course) to drill into those mountains and make ways..

And you know what you came in my mind, when you asked who could have possibly been so dumb to let them to have the eastern part of the island, it was our ancestors.

Strategically, the western part appears to be more safer in case of attacks, but obviously they did not think that one day the fights would have stopped and they would have to think about building their country.

P.S: I'm not sure but I believe Haiti has more forts than Dominican Republic.

Think about!!!
