Despite the misunderstandings, Jim says he has no ill feelings toward the Haitian authorities for putting him in jail. "When we were put in detention, it was a real shock at the moment and it was real hard to process that, but they treated us well," he says. "They were doing the best they could, and they were going through the legal process. It's different than ours, completely different than what we are used to here. ... I felt like as soon as the story was told and the facts come out that we had done nothing wrong, that I would be coming home. I just didn't know when that would happen."
