The moto taxi drivers are often young men with a thirst for travel and adventure. It amazes me how much they will endure for just a few dollar fare. The roads are terrible and rattle every joint in your body to exhaustion and beyond.
Every journey on a moto taxi in Haiti is an adventure. In Port au Prince you will endure the thrill (or terror) of weaving in and out of traffic.
