Here is a photo of an old fashion wooden sugarcane mill in Haiti (moulin kann in Creole, moulin a canne in French), still in operation.
This specific sugar cane mill sit in countryside village of Savane Haleine, outside of Maissade, Centre, Haiti.
These wooden sugarcane mills are still in operation in Haiti they are moved by two cows or two horses tied to the lever that you see extending out.
As the horse turns it, one of two people feed the sugars cane in between two big wooden rollers and the cane juice falls in the big canoe looking wooden crate below the rollers.
It is still the middle ages in some parts of the country, I am sorry to say but it is one more thing you will get to visit if you decide to go on a road trip while visiting Haiti
Here is a picture of Robert Martino, a real legend in the Haitian Music industry posing with a member of the Haitian Rap Kreyol group Rockfam at the 6th Annual Haitian Independence Festival.
ROCKFAM performed live at the festival which happened on January 17th, 2009 in Bayfront Park, Downtown Miami Florida.
Here is a great place to visit on your next trip to Haiti... This is Fort-Dauphin in the city of Fort-Liberte, Nord-Est Haiti.
This is an aerial view of Fort-Dauphin... Isn't she Beautiful?
This fort was built in 1732.
Haitians call leftover food "YESTERDAY" so you know... LOL... Here is some leftover Haitian rice and beans (diri kole ak pwa dòmi) with fried eggs (ze fri).
It's a good breakfast combination when you are in a rush to get out of the house to go to work in the Diaspora.
Call your Haitian friend and tell them "w ap manje yesterday?" They'll die laughing... LOL...
Any cooked food leftover in the fridge of a Haitian in the diaspora is called YESTERDAY, it don't matter if it's been there for two weeks.... LOL...
It is custom in Haiti to cook everyday. So once the food lasts through the night in Haiti, they call it 'manje domi'.
Back in the days, 'manje domi' would be spoiled. Haitians say 'manje a si'. but tha's because we had no refrigeration to store the food and keep it away from a bacteria invasion.
Goat meat (vyan kabrit) is a favorite amongst Haitian. Goat is a staple food in Haiti. Haitians like to eat dried goat meat (vyann kabrit sech)
After they season the meat with some delicious Haitian seasoning, they put the meat in the sun to be dried.
Haitians in the diaspora always find a way to bring some 'vyann kabrit sech' with them back to the states whenever they are returning from a trip to Haiti.
Here is a Spirit Airlines flight to Haiti. Look at this picture as passengers at the Haiti Airport are getting are ready to board spirit airlines flight from Haiti to Ft Lauderdale Florida.

There are 3 names for the surface a plane is on at the airport.
The place where a plane lands and takes off is called the Runway.
The part of the airport where the plane taxis to and from the runway is called the Taxiway.
The area where all the plane are parked to be boarded is called the Apron.
