The Iron Market

After the rest of the volunteers arrived in the capital we took a day trip into the city to do a little cultural exploration. One of the places we visited was the Marche de fer (or the Iron Market). Upon entering the market I experienced an immediate sensory overload as I tried to navigate the labyrinth of fresh baked foods, handcrafted creations, and voodoo arts, all while being pushed and pulled in every direction by vendors. While it was slightly overwhelming at first, it is definitely a must see when visiting Port-au-Prince.
