Went back to Haiti, for a few days,
and thought I would share a different perspective of Haiti with you....
since obviously, we weren't kidnapped.

Kanaval Jacmel is the Sunday before Mardi Gras weekend, known for its parade of handmade papier-mâché masks, music, and dancing in the street. The themes revolve around humor, political issues, religion, slavery and voodoo. Jacmel is famous for its beautiful beaches, surfer's delights, gingerbread houses, papier-mâché mask makers, painters and handmade artisan shops.

Lanse Kod. These boys/men paint themselves in black, 
wear horns to terrify and carry ropes to symbolize their release from slavery.
