That is one country that just can't catch a break. When I first started visiting the Dominican Republic, you could tour working sugar plantations. The sugar cane is harvested by hand with a machete. The working and living conditions are so bad that no one from the DR will do it. All the workers were (and still are) from Hati. Their living quarters looked like someone took a sheet and draped it over a piece of clothesline. No electricity, no air conditioning, no running water, no screens for mosquito control. Absolutely the worst living conditions I have ever seen. Haitian kids ( some naked) chasing our tour vehicles begging for money. Someone finally smartened up and put a stop of the tours at the plantations. Now when you go they take you to a specially prepared area where they give you a piece of sugar cane to chew on, and squeeze some juice out of the cane for you to drink. You no longer are allowed to see any of the workers working, or their squalid living quarters. How bad are the actual living conditions in Haiti that anyone from Haiti thinks that living like this is a good thing? That this is an opportunity?

Haitians are an extremely hard working people. No one on planet earth should be living like that. Certainly no one in the western hemisphere should be living like that.

Yeah that country just can’t catch a break. Between natural disasters and horrible dictators, you’d think the country is jinxed. Haiti is one of those places where, when you write the history of it, the most common phrase is: “And then things got worse.”
