In between stops we were able to stop and tour Hope church, school, clinic, and Innovation Lab. The Innovation Lab was a small pod which is known to the students as the "technology pod". They have 25 Ipads, 10 Macbooks, 5 32 inch TV's, and 2 52 inch TV's all linked to an Apple TV. This Innovation Lab is the first of its kind with the best technology education in the world. This was neat to see in such a poor country. The purpose is to educate the kids here in Cite Soleil appropriately to help them be the future of Haiti. One of our other stops was at the pier. We went there to take a group picture by the ocean and to play with the children. The ocean bay wasn't clear like most ocean water. There was also trash floating on top of the water. There were kids running around without clothes. The sight of that really was heartbreaking for all of us.
To unwind after a long hot day, we went back to the guesthouse to shower. We then had the opportunity to walk over to a market set up by neighborhood artisans. Many of the things were handmade, like bracelets, necklaces, paintings, and many more items.
