Visiting Paulna's village was also part of our plans for Nov. 1st. There is no shade and it seems hotter than Port-au-Prince out here.
Paulna's mother was busy grinding "l'huile mesquitie", which is a plant that is ground and then boiled for its oil. The Haitian people use it for their hair. Paulna's family grows it in their garden. They can also sell the finished oil product to others.
