The Haitian Man With a VISA... Should I Stay or Should I GO?


I asked a Haitian man with a VISA: "So... When to you plan to take a trip to the United States?" His reply made me think... Guess what the man said to me...

"Mwen te anvi ale vre wi men le-m refleshi konbyen lajan map bezwen pou vwayaj la: kob ticket Nouyok, kob posh, monche, mwen deside plante 6,000 plan bannann pito, sou de kawo te, ak lajan saa..."

"Le-m vann bannann sa yo, mwen ka fe menm 200 a 300 mil goud profi sou yo..."

(Translation)

I wanted to take a trip to the U.S. recently but once I realized how much money I will need for my trip: Ticket to New York, pocket money, etc... I decided to use the money instead to plant 6,000 plantain trees on my land instead with that money...

After the harvest, I expect to make between 200,000 and 300,000 gourde profit...

Hmmm... Interesting...

What do you think about that?

Suze He does not seem committed to travel. I think that working the land will benefit him more, not only in earnings but in personal satisfaction.
