Well... we made it.....A beautiful flight over... the country side is most spectacular.... It is a shame this country is so poverty stricken. Flying over it one would think it could only be paradise.

We arrived in Port Au Prince around noon. The airport is difficult to maneuver and it took about 4 hours to find fuel for the helicopter, receive a temporary ID and find a ride to the Orphange where I will be treating the children's dental needs.

Tom is currently flying the director of Hope For Haiti around to survey some sights for relief. I am organizing my dental equipment for a full day of treatment tomorrow. There are a lot of special needs children here at the orphanage in wheel chairs that I will be treating. The director of the Orphanage is very excited because she claims there is such a need for dentistry here.
