Damn Those Traffic Jams

Port au Prince Morning Heading to Work
     Sometimes I find myself complaining about the traffic here in Key West, but a trip to Haiti a few years back reminds me of what over crowding and traffic problems really are.  Even Miami can't compare with the issues facing the city of Port au Prince in Haiti.  In many places the cars can't move because there are so many people filling the street.  It is more of a people jam rather than a traffic jam.  Port au Prince has one of the highest population densities in the world.

     When I get frustrated by what happens here when there is an event in town is nothing compared to what the people of Port au Prince have to deal with every day.
