World Cup fever

It is World Cup time and life in Haiti has taken on a new rhythm based on the schedule of soccer matches. Want to avoid traffic? Just head to town when there's a match going on as the streets are almost empty-- everyone's watching TV or listening to the radio with friends. EdH (Electricite d'Haiti) has adjusted its program to assure there's power during the matches. There was a near riot in town yesterday when a truck hit a pole and some wires came down, cutting off a neighborhood. EdH employees were quick to respond and restored the power.
