Haiti: Not a Tourist Destination
Here is a snapshot of the parking lot of our hotel in Motrois, Haiti. Our truck is the silver Mitsubishi sandwiched between the UN security and red cross vehicles. Suffice to say that we haven't come across many tourists during our field work in Haiti. We just arrived back in Port-au-Prince after our trip north. Along the way, we resampled a transect that was part of one of the first molecular genetic studies of cryptic species (see Webster and Burns 1973 Evolution paper on variation in A. brevirostris).
