The above picture is a shot of my bedroom in Haiti. Like something out of a movie … it looks glamorous and adventurous at the same time.

What the picture doesn’t show are my roommates. Plural. Yes, we’ve made a few new friends in Haiti. A few of which I could’ve lived without. That’s my personal opinion, however. The boys think these new friends are the coolest part of the trip so far. In addition to the swarms of mosquitoes that think my legs are their buffet, the following creatures share my room at night. It makes for a crowded bunch. One particularly hairy creature makes me think of a certain episode of Brady Bunch. If you didn’t grow up on that show in the 80’s, you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. To the rest of you, I sure hope the critters don’t come home with me in my suitcase.

Oh be still, my heart.
