Living here

Arrived in Haiti / Port-au-Prince / Petionville in September 2004, will stay here for several years with one of the UN agencies.
Here the view of the terrasse of the Hotel Oloffson.
It is a very nice country, I like it here.
You can also have a look at my travelogue on Haiti or see much more photos on my external website.


In front of the church one sunday morning, people sell candy and it is a peaceful atmosphere.

country life

Completely different is life in the rural areas. Here a small village in the mountains 2500 m high (Furci)

    Loved your Haiti Pages. Made me homesick to go back. Have you ever gone to a concert in Salle Ste. Cecile at Ecole Ste. Trinite? Just wondered if the orchestra is as good as it used to be.
