Haiti - ALL These Tomatoes for 75 Gourdes, about $1.25 US, Great Deal OR La Vie Cher?

PHOTO: Haiti - Fresh Tomatoes - Cost: 75 Haitian Gourdes
A Haitian farmer walks by my house in Hinche Haiti with a big "panier" of organic tomatoes and sells me a one-gallon bucket full of tomatoes for 75 gourdes... That's about $1.25 US for more than 60 medium tomatoes... Is that a great deal OR "La Vie Cher"?

KREYOL: Gade sa... Haiti - 75 Gourdes Tomates... Yon BOKIT plen tomat pou environ $1.25 US... Bon DEAL oswa La Vie Cher? Kisa ou panse de sa???

QUESTION: How much is one pound of tomatoes where you live?

Some say life is expensive in Haiti... Is it because there is NO money circulating in the hands of the people (PEP LA) or is it because food is simply expensive to buy?

What do you think about that?
