photos - archaie - part 5

We visited this boat builder. He can build a boat like this in 15 days.

He is proud of his trade. It is amazing how they can build boats out of material that are handy.

The road behind the public square leads to the seashore. There is quite a bit of garbage along the shore.

Archaie has the potential to be a tourist area. If the garbage is cleaned up and some development made tourists will come. The people here are more easy going and relaxed than the people of Port-au-Prince.

It was a non-market day while we were there. Market day is on Wednesday and Saturday. These men were off-loading sacs of charcoal from their boats.
