Images replacing the absence I

Throughout the days of this summer, I had the chance to be hired as a translator for the Compassion International whose mission is to liberate children from poverty. That Friday morning the sponsors were waiting to see their children at Mont Rouis(The children they sponsor) with impatience while in the wide awakening of the sun at Port-Au-Prince, these children could barely seat still for the impatience was felt by them as well. That morning before I left for work my prayers were that God use my talents and the love that I have for people shine through the way that I would help these people; the connection between the sponsor and the teenage girl. Lights of happiness with a small dose of nervousness were present but as soon as I took my place in the bus, they all vanished.

 Despite my shy features heavenly said from people, I didn't take a long time to get out my gear to photograph and meditate along the way. It was wonderful to get away from the noisy hustle of Port-Au-Prince even for a day and get lost in the surprises that the streets reserved for my eyes. As soon as we were approaching our location; The Hotel Xaragua, the mild agitated waves, the white sand beach were definitely giving us a treat from our far away window on the bus...For the rest of the posts I'll just let you take part in the pictures as well.

I had super long and heavy brown braids this summer so in this shot abovI had super long and heavy brown braids this summer so in this shot above, I seriously felt like running like Pocahontas who sang "The rainstorm and the river are my brothers, the heron and the otter are my friends" in the color of the wind.

We were all working and playing hard as well.

It's All Love
