Arcahaie Is The Birthplace Of The Haitian Flag. On May 18, 1803, In Arcahaie, Members Of The Revolutionary Army Led By General Jean-Jacques Dessalines Ripped The White Section Out Of The French Flag And Baptized The Blue And Red Haitian Flag During The Final Months Of The Slave Rebellion.

In Haiti, bread fruit is called lame veritable or lam veritab but do you know why Haitians eat breadfruit?
Here's what I read...
Breadfruits was looked upon as an excellent food source for the African slaves in the plantations of the Caribbean.
Breadfruit is one of the highest-yielding food plants. one single breadfruit tree can produce up to 200 or more fruits per season.
Also... Did you know?
All parts of the breadfruit tree yield natural latex, a milky juice which is useful for boat caulking in Haiti.
When someone says Haiti is a virgin country, They are absolutely right.
What you are looking at is a piece of land that is only a few feet from the ocean in one of the most historical town in Haiti.

In the United states of America, this piece of real estate would be priceless.
However, in Haiti, it is being used to house pigs and as a staging area for charcoal.
I hope someone sees this as a golden opportunity; a place to have a BIG resort and bring in millions of tourists every year.
When you do it, remember to give a big donation to Woody. :)
