Yesterday morning we spent an hour visiting a local market to get some cutaways for the video we are making. The market surrounds an empty building site which is now trash dump site and toilet. Since the earthquake the government services are barely running. There is no rubbish collection so the streets are piled high with trash. People burn the rubbish so driving through the city you pass numerous burning piles, the smoke filling the streets with an eerie light and sickly smell. This market was a disturbing mixture of foods, medicine and sim cards surrounding piles of burning trash, human excrement and flies. Life goes on in Haiti.
