The View from the mountiantop.
Here in Haiti beautiful hikes to the top of mountains with breath taking views of the sea are abundant. Before coming here, this was not my image of Haiti but it is the truth. Here you see me with my sister, Beth and friend, Maxa after a hike up to the Citadel in northern Haiti.
Behind the clinic, we can walk to the top of a small mountain through small farms and look out at the sea. Someone has built a small outdoor church there.
There is gentle mixture of mountain, river, sea and farm. In the traditional villages, the houses blend into this environment without disturbance or impact. This is the Haiti I have come to know and love.
