Colors and Beauty

For many weeks now, we have seen distressing images of the tragedy that stroked Haiti in January. I realised recently that I have seen more images of Haïti since the earthquake than I had in the 26 years preceding, and that my opinion about this country is being deeply influenced by what the media decide to show - or not to show- us.  So just to remember that even though it faces many challenges, Haiti harbours much beauty, creativity and treasures, here are some pictures we have but rarely seen in the past weeks. 

 Those beautiful pictures are from Marie-Louise Fouchard and Roberto Stephenson's book "Intérieurs d'Haïti", but they have been found at JuBella.
