"I lived in the Dominican Republic for six months, but one time I got left in Haiti on the Dominican Haitian border. I went to visit a farmers' market there and wandered on the Haitian side of the border unknowingly, and found out that you can't *do* that. There's a lot of tension between the Dominican Republic and Haiti! So I ended up on the Haitian side of the border for awhile while they debated whether or not my American passport was real. So that was pretty scary. I made it back fine; they found my passport to be valid, but for awhile they were like, 'I don't believe that you have an American passport,' and I was like, 'But I speak English and I'm American and can we call someone and double-check that...?' That whole process was pretty crazy."
