One thing that our driver pointed out to us
was how many of the schools in Haiti
were destroyed in the earthquake.
They were built of cinderblock.
This particular school was 5 stories high,
until January 12, 2010
Construction of new schools has begun.
This time they are being built out of wood.
I was told that the schools were built by private
contractors. It makes me wonder what
shortcuts were taken with construction...
making them all collapse.
