Haiti - House Construction in the middle of nowhere - Two cows in the picture

Haiti - House Construction in the middle of nowhere - Two cows in the picture

Look at this photo, a new home construction in the middle of nowhere outside of a Haitian city... Don't be alarmed... Soon there will be lots of houses here...

This is a new housing development in Sapaterre, Centre Haiti, it is only a few miles from Hinche and the mountain view is breathtaking...

Nowadays the little Haitian cities are really getting congested and, because of that, many Haitians are buying land in the outskirts of these cities and building bigger houses.

Haiti - Ti Poul dèyè Manman - What does it really mean?

Haiti - Ti Poul dèyè Manman - What does it really mean?

In Haitian Creole, "Ti Poul dèyè Manman" can mean many things... Literally it means baby chicks following their mother, the hen or female chicken. but it has other meanings as well...

When a Haitian tells you: "Ou se yon Ti Poul dèyè Manman," what they are really trying to tell you is that you have no experience, you dont know what you are talking about.

Haiti Beef Cattle - Livestock - Yon bèf ki mare nan kòd (pa genyen élevage libre ankò)

Haiti Beef Cattle - Livestock - Yon bèf ki mare nan kòd (pa genyen élevage libre ankò)

My father tells me when he was a small child growing up in Haiti, there was free breeding (elevage libre), which meant that all cattle, goats, sheep, and other animals were released freely in the fields to eat, drink, water and breed. And farmers used to make good money.

But not anymore... Free breeding is not allowed in Haiti anymore. not for a long time.

KREYOL


Papa-m di lè li te ti moun piti an Haiti, te genyen elvaj lib (élevage libre), ki vle di tout bèf, kabrit, mouton, ak lòt zannimo te lage lib nan savann yo andeyo pou yo manje, bwè dlo, fè pitit, e sa te rapòte payizan yo anpil lajan.

Papa-m di yonn nan prezidan ki vinn monte yo, mwen pa sonje ki prezidan, misye finn exije peyizan yo pou mete zanimo sa yo nan kòd... e dapre li menm, sa totalman kraze zafe elvaj an Haiti.

Kisa-w panse de sa?
