Anba Kolonbye - Under The Granary - Haiti Countryside, Maissade

In Haiti, Anba Kolonbye (under the granary) on the Haitian countryside is where you will find the old wooden chair (chez pay la), the old Wooden 'Pilon' (How do you say pilon in English?)

Anyway, the pilon under the granary is what I am sittin on. Haitians use it to mash their grains (pile mayi, pile pitimi, pile diri), to remove the husk from the seeds before cooking it.

Yep... Not everything goes to the mill.

How did we go from 'anba kolonbye' to milling grains. LOL

This photo was taken on the the Haitian town of Maissade, It's like a village a few miles from Hinche, Centre, Haiti.
