travel to haiti
I had no idea how strongly my friend and many other Haitians feel about this uneven representation of their island until I posted a picture of a pile of garbage in Port-au-Prince and her brother told me off. Haiti is treated like that girl who can't shake the bad reputation she got in high school.
"Most people don't like talking about the earthquake, but someone always asks. It's just so painful to remember." It's my first time visiting Haiti, and while it's as hot as I expected (maybe hotter), I wasn't prepared for the beauty of the country.
