Another Side of Haiti
I was really looking for weeks to pitch a story about the other side of Haiti. Not the earthquake, tents, voodoo, or debilitating health piece, rather a real tourist piece. At this point, I have no takers, but I hope that after you see these pictures, you want to know more about Haiti.
There are a lot of things that Haiti is not, but the media bombards us with what Haiti is: AIDS, Voodoo, Poor, Dirty, and victims. And, sometimes, as I read these articles and stories I wonder when will Haiti be shown as the Haiti I know. The place that accepts me and brings my emotional and spiritual gas tank back to full. Haiti is one of the most transformative places where I have lived and where I continue to work.
I saw this video from Mikaben and thought now it is time to share a few of my photos. I have a few stories that I want to share with you over the next few days, but I hope you enjoy the photos of the Haiti that I know. It isn’t the place that is in the news, but it does exist.
