Last week, a blogger named Tynan wrote about his experiences couch-surfing in Haiti. He was initially nervous about visiting Haiti due to the images of burning tires and protests one sees so often on the television and news-paper. Couch surfing allowed him to see some of the most positive aspects of Haitian culture such as the warmth, hospitality, and humor. His trip to Haiti went without incident. Ironically enough, he was mugged durng the next leg of his trip in the Dominican Republic. The blog entry is copied below.
