Do you remember Jalousie?
I was very intrigued by the colorful neighborhood last year, and I had to visit it now that I’m in Haiti again. Most people there were friendly, but very few wanted their picture taken, and some reveled in saying “No! Go!”
I guess having the power to say that is quite enjoyable if you own little else.
Jalousie is among many slums that have sprawled across the hills of the capital Port-au-Prince in recent decades because governments past and present have failed to provide affordable housing and basic services. … Amid its narrow corridors and steep steps, Jalousie has no traditional sewage system or electric grid. (The Huffington Post)
Jalousie does have the best view in Port-au-Prince though. And now colors.
Let’s hope the improvements don’t stop there.
