Voodoo is a very large part in the Haitian's life. The family that I stayed with practiced Voodoo and taught me some things about it. First, they said that there is one God. Second, the main thing about Voodoo is healing the ill. After learning about Voodoo, my family brought me 10 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince, where the devastating earthquake happened. They live right outside of the capital in a city called Carrefour. Paige

I told them that when air gets dry back at home, we use things called humidifiers. They told me they wished they had them. Paige

17: Dear Family, I wanted to get to know the people of Haiti a little bit more, so I sat down with the mother of the house, Alexandra, to get to know the life of the people.

Alexandra said that the majority of people here in Haiti are African- American, with a small minority white. Paige
