A Tourist's guide to Port-au-Prince, Haiti

With some trepidation, I fly into the Haitian capital. My guide picks up me up and then whips me through some Port-au-Prince's highlights. Sights include the Iron Market, the voodoo statues in the Hotel Oloffson, the earthquake damaged cathedral, Place Jean-Jacques Dessalines, Place du Marron (home to some great statues), the view of the colourful hillside homes and the observatory, which offered a great view of the city. All in all, a great trip, fuelled by a touch of apprehension and sprinkled with a dash of excitement. If you can ignore the huge amounts of trash, and the sheer amount of chaos, then Port-au-Prince might be the place for you.
