Nancy's Haiti Pages


How I began going to Haiti. How I became connected with Matenwa in the mountains of Lagonav. A little bit about the community. Why I decided to go there and live for a while in January, 2003.

Photos from the first few weeks. February, 2003.

A letter: February 10, 2002. Adjusting, winging it, beginning to dig a garden.

Another letter: March 18, 2003. It is so dry here...

Dancing the Rara: April 21, 2003. Spring

Summing It Up So Far: September 1, 2003
