Offical election results forthcoming...

You know in America it's "bling, bling", but out here it's "bling, bang". - Danny Archer (Leonardo Decaprio) to Maddy Bowen (my future wife, Jennifer Connelly) in the 2006 film Blood Diamond

The first round of Haiti's Presidential election was on November 28. When the first round's "preliminary" results were announced in mid-December, even sleepy Jeremie saw borderline rioting and general chaos. It's been quiet since I returned in early January, but the official results will be announced tomorrow.

I'm hoping the Electoral Council's announcement isn't setting a match to this tinderbox.
