Haitian television is covering the election in the US, and we got our power just a bit ago. So here I sit - and they've stopped commenting and have started streaming CNN in English. And I found a website (while looking up malaria in Haiti, actually) with live updates. It's slightly surreal to be here and have all this. At the mother house, we don't stay up and watch, so I wonder if I'm even better connected at the moment than I would be at home. Strange. But everyone here is interested, despite the fact that we have a disaster on our hands with the aftermath of Sandy. Wow.

That's what I call an interest in foreign politics.
