Last Monday was a national holiday in honor of Dessalines, the revolutionary
leader of Haiti. A group of hikers took advantage of the holiday to travel to Kenscoff, south of the capital of Port-au-Prince, to do some mapping and sight-seeing. Among them were Nick, George, Jaakko and Adam.
The area is very rural and appears to grow mostly carrots and onions. All
along the road they were passing donkeys loaded with food for markets.
Jaakko brought a backpack for his dog, so everyone would stop to point and
stare at this “donkey-dog”. One man insisted on getting his photo taken
with the dog.
Below I will share some of the photos from their excursion, but first a map to show you where they went. They began in Croix des Bouquets (not numbered here), then on to (1)Port-au-Prince, then to (3)Kenscoff:
Wonderful memories were made!
