Lonely Planet Haiti in 2009

I was able to purchase the Lonely Planet “Dominican Republic and Haiti” guidebook. I sometimes think I am going off the tourist path, however I soon realize, gee whiz, there is a guidebook…

I always travel with a guidebook, even though this book cost me 21 U.S. Dollars, I am absolutely positive the cost will be offset by the money and frustration saved. Note, I do not read all the historical and liberal crap in the books until after I have been “in country” for about three weeks. If I want the historical realities, I get on Wikipedia.org; I save the confused commentaries for after my mind has a more balanced perspective. I want to avoid the garbage in, garbage out talk I incessantly hear from other backpackers, what they know about a place they have never been to be amazingly stupid.

Chuck, I should be thanking you, there is nothing like the rush of going to a new country. Everyone on the planet seems to want to be in control, I long to be out of control living by my wit.
