Video: Visiting Haiti two years later

Photojournalist Neil Hallsworth revisits the hotel that he and Anderson Cooper used as their base after the earthquake. They were among the first journalists on the ground in Haiti, and despite the chaos, had to quickly locate the center of operations for CNN's coverage.

Don't miss Anderson's special report on Haiti tonight at 8 and 10 p.m. ET on AC360.

    I just spent a week in Haiti with Habitat for Humanity. The security around us was so tight (due to unrest and demonstrations) that we only saw a bit of the country from the windows of our bus and through the fences at our camp and the work site. Dear, funny, joyful people in the midst of what remains of rubble, chaos and poverty. The new Haitian President came to see our President (Carter) one day at the build. I hope against hope that he is able to deal with the corruption that has made those who have pledged funds reluctant to follow through.

    As a very small example, we had little fresh fruit as it would have to come through the Dominican and by the time that "tariffs" could be arranged it would have gone bad.

    The country has a hundred years of history to overcome in addition to the disaster that brought me there. I will go back.
