News From Tiff
Well, last night after writting, we walked a little and ran into a guy from Haiti and his friends. We hung out with them awhile and talked (mostly in Spanish and Creole mix) but anyway we learned a lot about Haiti and Voodoo. Today one of them took us to a very remote and primitive Haitian village here in the Dominican Republic (similar to going to a Mexican agricultural workers camp but poorer). Anyway the people were wonderful and the children stole my heart. I took dozens of pictures of them as they came from near and far to see themselves in the review window. I have great shots.
Then we got permission to attend our own private voodoo ceremony to sell Brad's house. We ran all over finding and buying at least 20 ingrediants locally and then returned for a 2nd ceremony making the solution Brad has to bathe in and the potions we need to take back to bless the house with. It all weighs a ton. We have a full gallon of bath stuff and at least another quart of house stuff plus about 10 candles. Voodoo is big on depending on lots of stuff. At least the bath stuff will run out before we have to start taking taxi motorcycles hauling it all on our backs.
Tomorrow is beach day -hooray.
Tiff and Brad
