May 17,
Well the trip to Jeremie went pretty much as anticipated.  The only variation was when we arrived in Port au Prince.  Roger the charter pilot had a client who needed a ride to Jacmel, so we flew from PauP across the peninsula to the south coast, landed in Jacmel (which had a nice paved runway).  Lawrence jumped off, grabbed his bags and we were off again.  Then we flew back over the mountain to the north side and on to Jeremie.
Fr Ernest was there with his heart warming smile to greet us.  I must say that the road from the landing strip in to Jeremie is getting worse.  We bounced a lot!  Many grunts and groans!  20+ minutes of some sort of exercise that I can't recommend.

Today, Don and I headed to St Jean Bosco for the first Windows 10 upgrade effort.  By 11:00 AM we were close to wrapping up 18 laptops.  We were excited and relieved that things went as smoothly as they did.  Some minor snags in the Windows update cycle prolonged things a bit, but by 1:30 or 2:00 we called it done.
This picture is of low interest, but it does show a classroom.

While we were waiting in PauP for Roger to get some more gas in his plane, I did weaken a bit.  We're always accosted by vendors selling crafts of some sort.  Here's my acquisition!

It is so good to see the people here that we work with.  Hugs every time!
Sleep last night was not good.  Heat is really oppressive.  And then there are the barking dogs!  May kill a few tonight!
Time to wrap it up.
Peace, Dave
