Update Four -- Sustainable Haiti Workshop

Ahhhh! Flight is officially booked! Round trip from Port Au Prince (PAP) to New York (LGA) came to $761, a little more than the $600 I budegted for my I definitely left some cushion in the budget for this kind of stuff. I'll still have to book another small charter flight ($65) from Port Au Prince to Pignon, but my host is helping me organize that that. I had to make the trip three weeks instead of four because my hosts have to leave Haiti earlier than expected and I don't really think I would feel comfortable staying in Haiti completely by myself. So the trip is locked for July 30th - August 18th. I'll be subletting my room for the entire month so I'll spend that extra 5 or 6 days in Miami before returning to New York the last week in August. I have to do this because subletting my room for the entire month is one of the ways I can afford to miss an entire three weeks of pay.

I'll update again soon.
