Here is a photo of Pond De Thomonde (Thomonde Haiti Bridge), on Highway 3 (Route Nationale No 3) in Thomonde Haiti...
If you look closely you will notice two bridges side by side on Rivière Thomonde (Thomonde River). The smaller bridge is the old dirt road before Highway 3 was paved. They straightened the road a little bit and build a bigger bridge.
Here is a great Haiti tourist attraction you just have to visit on your next trip. This old catholic church in Hinche Haiti is more than 500 years old.
This cathedral in Hinche was built in 1503 by Nicolas de Ovando
This is one of the oldest catholic churches in Haiti, the oldest cathedral in the island of Hispaniola.
The saint in front of the catholic church in Hinche is Immaculee Conception, in Hinche they call it Manman Marie
Here is a picture of Haitian filmmaker Raynald Delerme at the lobby hotel Barcelo Lina in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Did you know? The Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispaniola with the Republic of Haiti.
This was taken on my first trip to the Dominican Republic, me and my friend Raynald, aka BABA, we took a road trip from Haiti to Santo Domingo to take part in a Haitian festival that was being held there.
It was fun!

Here is a photo of Haitian airlines passengers walking to board an American airline flight at the Haiti International Airport in Port-au-Prince.
Did you know?
Haitians used to call American Airlines 'zwazo an fè a' (the metal bird) back in the days when American was the only flight coming and going to New York. Some still do.
This picture was taken in 2008.
I have only seen this twice in my lifetime. A palm tree in Haiti loaded with bird's nests.
I saw it once when I was a kid vacationing in my uncle's house in Port-au-Prince. I saw it once again later on in life, this one not far from the Hinquitte River in my hometown of hinche Haiti.
Nowadays you barely see any birds in the sky when you look up in Haiti.
Gade foto sa-a... Pie Palmis Chaje ak Nish Zwazo - Andeyo Haiti.
Si-w se diaspora, sa pa fe-w sonje peyi-w?
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.
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.
