life through the lens
I spent a week at Cap Haitien in Haiti, travelling crammed into a truck from the Dajabon border.
The Gourde gets its name from the calabash husks used to carry water
Cap Haitien city centre
The handicrafts market area of Cap Haitien
An excellent documentary film about the slums of Port-au-Prince
Cathedral at Place d'Armes, Cap Haitien
Labadie beach, a few kilometres from Cap Haitien
At the bottom of hill leading to the Citadelle is the village of Milot
Sans Souci, President Henri Christophe's palace, was completed in 1813
Ruins surrounding Sans Souci palace
On the 5 kilometre trail up the Pic la Ferriere to the Citadelle
Washing clothes, the Citadelle trail
My first look at the Citadelle - looks like a scene from Psycho (or is that just me?)
The Citadelle fortress, again from Henri Christophe, was built in 1820 to repel a French invasion
The views are stunning from the Citadelle
