16: Dear Family, I am having a wonderful time here in Haiti. There are such amazing people here and they are so open hearted. In the country of Haiti it has mountains and numerous rivers all through the country. With the climate being tropical and with warm temperatures year round. I stayed with the Poupon family. The parent’s names are Alex and Dominique. There were 2 children named Isabelle and Julia. We lived in a shack in Port-au-Prince. The weather here is gorgeous and is sunny most of the time. The house that I live in did not have any electricity and did not have running water into the house. So every morning we all had to go to a well and collect water for the entire day. Since we did not have electricity inside of the house we had to get all of the household work done before the sun went down and during the night we had lanterns to light the house a little. We bathed every morning at 5 a.m. and we do so by taking bucket bathes. Love, Jenée Baptiste
17: Dear Family, Hi everyone!! I am doing okay. The culture here is so unique and I love it. We eat a total of 2 meals a day. We have eaten Riz et Pois Rouges, Pumpkin Soup, Sweet Bread, Mangos and Sugarcane. Riz et Pois Rouges is “Red Beans & Rice” with onions, garlic, green bell peppers, crushed red pepper, red kidney beans and rice. Pumpkin Soup has pumpkin, chicken stock, parsley, onion, thyme, garlic and heavy whipped cream. Sweet Bread is raisins, coconut milk, coconut, flour, sugar, nutmeg and other spices. I love this dessert and I am going to make this when I come back home. When I return home, I am seriously going to miss it here and everyone that lives here. Love, Jenée Baptiste
18: Dear Family, Haiti is 95 percent filled with African Americans while the other 5 percent is Europeans and multiracial. Haiti shares an island with the Dominican Republic. The official name of Haiti is the 'Republic of Haiti'. The capital of Haiti is Port-au-Prince. The flag has two equal horizontal bands of blue (top) and red with a centered white rectangle bearing the coat of arms, which contains a palm tree flanked by flags and two cannons above a scroll bearing the motto L'UNION FAIT LA FORCE (Union Makes Strength); the colors are taken from the French Tricolor and represent the union of blacks and mulattoes. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere with 80% of the population living under the poverty line. The two most common languages spoken are Creole and French. Love, Jenée Baptiste
