The Un-Travel Post

The Buffalo area is still without power and people are still living in shelters, wondering if their homes have thoroughly flooded basements by now. Wondering, too, just how bad the food in the fridge and freezer smells, and hoping their insurance is up to date and claimable.
You'd think after the fiasco that was Katrina et al. that we'd (collective WE) be better able to cope. When First World countries struggle to recover after natural disasters, what hope do Third World countries have?

Other than watching the news, I have been busy posting photos of art from Haiti for Starthrower Foundation. They hope to sell the paintings for the artist, who has no market to speak of in Cap-Haitien. If you get a chance, pop over and have a look at their website (That's one of the paintings here).
