Hi everyone. Caroline and Cassidy here! Today’s wake up call came around 5:00AM. After a breakfast of warm bread, bananas, roasted peanuts and coffee in Don Don, Haiti, we took off to our destination for the day. The tour started with the San-Souci Palace, and then a ride up the mountains took us to the foot of the Citadel. Some hiked while others rode on horseback to the Citadel. We were accompanied by many “guides” hoping to catch our eye with cool souvenirs. The San-Souci Palace and Citadel were built in the 1800’s by self proclaimed king, Christophe. Chiseled into the top of the mountains, he utilized the Citadel as a housing unit for his royalty and militia. Around noon, we stopped for a bathroom and lunch break in the castle… I think we’ll consider this our home now!
