My window with a garden view in Haiti vs garden view in the United States!

When it comes to real estate homes and apartment rental in the United States everything has a view, lake view, garden view, you name it. In Haiti I have more than a garden view, I can actually cook what's in the garden LOL...

Have you ever seen these ads for apartments for rent in your area?

  • Apartment for Rent - Deluxe room with a garden view
  • Lake view apartment for rent with terrace and garden

Once you start seeing the keyword "view" in the the apartment listing, the price goes up.

I remember when I rented my apartment in Plantation Florida, I had to pay more money for rent each month because my bedroom window and the sliding glass door in the living room had the lake view with a terrace.

I don't know what they call the view overlooking looking at the parking lot or the garbage cans but I'm sure they have cute name for it.

The apartments with a garden view were less expensive. The garden view by the way was the parking lot but it was a very green parking lot if you know what I mean. You can hide many things with some shrubs.

Well... Where I live now, in a province in Haiti, my garden view has lots of bannann, pwa, mayi, seriz, anana... No shrubs... and every once in a while you see a live chicken walking by.

I love it!
