where i live in Jeremy i don't feel really comfortable. I don't walk any where, always by bike or car. I think it's cuz of what i represent over there. Every body knows what I work on and what I do. Mostly every body on the project feels the same hostility from the people in Jeremy.

On the other hand, when i go to other towns and villages, i don't get this feeling. I wouldn't say I'm 100% comfortable like in many places i went in latin america, but it's a lot better. for example I went to Les Cayes for Carnival and we where about 5 white people surrounded by thousands of Haitians and i felt better then in Jeremy. In really small towns people are curious and friendly, but it gets really annoying when they end up asking for money.
