It's a mess for sure.

The last time I went down there was a good amount of this chaos.  I was picked up directly from the airport by an ambulance to offer some semblance of cover for the dangerous trip across Port au Prince to the hospital compound.  We were stopped at a barricade of burning tires and a school bus sideways across the road and there were rocks being thrown at us as we crept along the roadways.  At the roadblock a little man with a big gun came to the driver's window where money was given in exchange for 'safe' passage.  He hopped up onto the running boards and hanging off the side of the ambulance he accompanied us to the next roadblock on the other side of the downtown area, where we paid yet another 'fee.'

Just a few months ago, one of the docs I work with was taken hostage for four days until a ransom was paid.  These kinds of incidents are more and more common these days.  I'm scheduled to go down again in the coming days.
