I know I’ve already posted today but I couldn’t help but write again. I heard there is a new Carter’s store in Lexington and they sell baby clothes. I wanted to just go and “look”. I figured a little trip out would be nice considering I’ve been staring at hospital walls for weeks. So Jose and I took Momma Gigi with us. So we’re driving – and we’re not in the car for more than 20 minutes – and momma Gigi says she has to go to the bathroom. I told her we would find a “place” to stop and I was meaning a gas station. She said – “HERE IS FINE” – – pointing to the shoulder of New Circle Road! LOL!! I told her this isn’t Haiti – you can’t just stop and go on the side of the road! I got so tickled I nearly had my own accident!!
I love how innocent Haitians are when they first visit – just as much as I love the culture shock of Americans’ first visit to Haiti. It really is two different worlds. I know I’ve only been home a day – but I’ve laughed more in the last day then I have in several weeks! Sometimes it’s just the little things that bring a smile!
Here are some pictures of Gigi and her mom coming to the states! Jose said he laughed so hard when Momma Gigi stepped on the moving sidewalk. She had never heard of such a thing and she was halfway afraid of it! She couldn’t believe Americans were so lazy that they had to have a machine to walk them!! LOL! It’s so true!
