We stayed above town in the mountains. It was very cold (for haiti). We did not see any sunshine and it rained everyday.
The boys were happy they got to use their jackets
We ate out once and had pizza!

does anyone know the name of this statue? I could not find out the name of it
“Le Negre Marron” (The Black Maroon; in creole, “Neg Mawon”), often translated in English as the “Unknown Slave” statue; on the boulevard “Champ de Mars” The “Negre Marron” is shown with left leg extended (broken chain on his ankle); a machete is in his right hand, and his left hand holds a conch shell to his lips. The conch shell was often used as a trumpet to assemble people. Created by the Haitian sculptor/architect, Albert Mangones (1917-2002) in 1968 or 1969, the statue was commissioned by the Duvalier government to commemorate the slaves who revolted against France.
