photos - bonnette - part 3

There is a lot of sugar cane grown in this village. It makes a ready snack for children.

Dan made a lot of friends with the children of the village.

He scared this young child though. When we were driving out of the village he saw this young boy with his older sister. We stopped the truck and he went running to give him a candy. The child cried and his sister picked him up. She ended up with the candy.

Sunday afternoon was Palm Sunday. On Palm Sunday Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. We saw this symbol of Palm Sunday in the village.

We saw another symbol as well that had nothing to do with christianity, but was a voodoo symbol. By the hougan's house we saw this voodoo cross with different charms. The front thing looks like it is prepared to light a fire. I don't know why there is a rock on top of both objects.
