Medical team arrival

We left Santo Domingo sharply (almost, but close enough) at 10 am, and arrived in Port Au Prince at about 4:20 pm. The trip was long but pretty comfortable, and we were picked up by Joe and John. We have spent the evening getting settled in at the guest house, and will get to work tomorrow.
I think we all expected to to see immediate devestation as soon as we arrived, but it hasn't been that way. We have seen buildings damaged and down, but we won't see the brunt of the damage until traveling farther in. Life here seems like it is compensating for the disaster. Traffic is moving, places are open, and people are living.
