We take so much for granted when it comes to power and water. In Bayonnais, power comes from the sun and water must be chlorinated before drinking. Solar charged batteries do not last all night and water comes from springs up the mountain and flows through concrete troughs, used for any and all purposes. The internet is spotty at best. The only internet supplier in Haiti broadcasts from a tower on the other side of Bayonnais. Utilities are valuable in Haiti.
