Kites, kites, kites!

More on this season: it is really windy. And what goes better with a lot of wind than a lot of kites? Over the past two weeks, kites handmade from plastic bags and bits of reed and string have appeared everywhere. On a less-than-2-mile drive up to Petionville yesterday, I counted four machann selling kites and saw two more actually making kites. From our porch, we see kids on the rooftops across the valley maneuvering their kites through the electrical wires, ancient phone lines and NGO banners that score the Port-Au-Prince sky.

Look at these gorgeous photos of kite-flying in Haiti.
