A good day in Haiti

One of the church's affiliated with the mission we go to had a well drilled this week. They hit good, abundant water this afternoon. This is going to allow the futur construction of a school and orphanage on the mountain. Can't wait to head there in a few months.

Is there any source of continuously flowing water down the mountainside nearby?  If there is they might be able to build their own mini hydro plant and generate a modest amount of power for the school, church, and orphanage.  Seriously.

Unfortunately there isn't. When it rains in the mountains it runs off very quickly. There are rivers in some valleys but again when it rains uphill the run off is so quick the rivers will rise 10 feet then be back to normal in less than a day.
