Haiti is suffering from the massive Jan 12 earthquake and needs our help. Below I've posted some first-hand accounts of the quake from people in Haiti. Please consider a donation to an organization in Haiti. If you would like to give directly to a Haitian family, please contact me (anna.versluis@gmail.com).

Anna's Trip to Fond Verettes (Study Area)

Map of Fond Verrettes. Four ravines (Carretier, Gros Cheval, Ti Bourrique and Delai) converge at Fond Verrettes and flow northwest. I stayed in Bois-Neuf Nord. The town center (formerly with hotel, police station, church, presbytery, market, restaurants, etc.) used to be located in what is now the riverbed south of Guimby and Cazeau.

Looking south over Fond Verrettes (with police commissariat in distance).

Figyè tree that has survived in the middle of the Delaï Ravine, downstream from the cemetery (looking downstream).
