photos - baptist mission, fort jacques

The Baptist Mission has a small zoo. We started our day here. The children's favorite animals to see were "Fifi" the monkey and the crocodile.

The children enjoyed using the slide.

After we visited the Baptist Mission we drove up to Fort Jacques. This is the area around the outside wall of the fort. There were a lot of people there because it was a holiday - "La Mort de Dessalines" (Death of Dessalines) who was one of the heroes of Haiti's independance battles.

There is a beautiful view of Port-au-Prince along the outside edge of the fort.

The children enjoyed their walk around the fort.
