Dr. Jane in Haiti – Journal Day # 1
Wednesday, January 27, 2010
I am currently in a guest house on the top of the city of Port-au-Prince. This is a very exquisite part of Haiti and was, for the most part, untouched by the earthquake. A journalist from New York recommended this guest house and it’s great…we even had showers....the water was hot, but sparse and I felt great after the long and very hot day. There was a point in the day just before lunch when I felt a bit faint because it was in the 90s and I was out walking without a cap and I was tired from the long night flight from Newark. We flew care of a benefactor who supports WWO and other charities on a private jet with doctors from Mt. Sinai Medical Center and Partners in Health (PIH), co-founded by Dr. Paul Farmer. Coincidentally, there were film makers on the plane who are doing a documentary for PIH and one of them made the film used for me at the Glamour event....quite a surprise to both of us to be seeing one another at 2 am in Newark.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
