One of the many children that I had the pleasure of meeting while staying in La Vallée. Despite this more serious look of concentration, he was a very happy and lighthearted boy, always doing his best to make everyone around him smile. It was fun to watch him play with the other children and the volunteers. He was such a pleasure to be around and I am glad I got to know this bright young man a bit.
One of the cultural exchanges the volunteers got to participate in was the annual Kite Festival. Each of us handmade a kite for the festival and then made the long walk from the hotel to the hillside where thousands of Haitians gathered for the celebration. Though it was very crowded, it was so much fun and filled with great food and great people.
