We got a flat tire on the way back from Sceau D'eau and now come to think of it, the delay on our trip back coincided with a wonderful moment that was about to unfold. The rain had just started to tapper off when we began to drive up a steep road on one of the Rte National heading back to Port-Au-Prince. Some guy riding on a motorcycle in the opposite direction shouted at us "kaoutchou nou plat" you guys got a flat tire - so we pulled over on the side of the road, got out of the SUV and the right tire in the back was completely flat. I also noticed we were parked facing a beautiful mountain, night was falling, the clouds were rolling by and the sun was slowly sinking below the mountain - I was witnessing an evening of splendor that was mine to immortalize.
