A Sabbath Days Rest

Scott and I decided to take our first Sabbath off here in Haiti.  It seemed that after 6 weeks largely stuck int the hospital, a road trip was in order, so we headed to Jacmel on the southern coast of the island.  Jacmel is a quaint little village by the sea with lots of French influence.  While there is some earthquake damage in Jacmel it is not nearly as widespread as it is here around Port-au-Prince.  The journey there took us up and over some very deforested yet picturesque mountains and through a number of little towns.  Below are some of the sights from our trip.
