Mountains, Lake, Mountains, Sunsets

One thing many outsiders (especially in the US) know about Haiti is the popular refrain “mountains beyond mountains,” to describe the highly mountainous terrain most common here. Recently I’ve gotten out again a bit: up to Hinche in the Central Department here, driving through lovely green farming terrain along the way…and, indeed, getting a sense of the mountains which criss-cross this country, rank upon rank. These are mostly just shots taken during the drives, or in and around the hotel we stayed at in Hinche. There are also a few bits and pieces from here in Port-au-Prince and environs, just for fun.

It’s election season, with the first round due on August 9th; I’ve been trying to capture shots of the election posters and so on, and hope to put some of those up for your enjoyment in another post within the next few weeks. Right now, I’m about to take a short vacation back home in California, and I admit I’m excited for some down time. Hope everyone’s well, and enjoy the shots.

    Hi Paul! Once again, great pictures. The sideways (?) shot of the tree caught my attention in particular. Do all parts of Haiti get similar amounts of rainfall, or does it vary? Pat E.

    Hinche! That’s where I took my tadpole shower and had the best pedicure of my life! Happy memories…It really tickles me to think of you there.
