Haiti’s future may be brighter than you think | Public Radio International


Haiti remains locked in a political stalemate despite international efforts pushing for legislative elections. It’s just one of many challenges facing the Caribbean nation. It would seem that not much has changed in the 10 years since I was last here. But I found not just that Haiti has changed, but that it has transformed into another country entirely. Take the airport. It’s open. I remember it from one of my last trips in February 2004: smashed to pieces, abandoned, ghostly. It was the height of the uprising against President Jean Bertrand Aristide.In 2010, the airport was leveled by the earthquake. It’s gotten a total rebuild. It’s now brightly lit, with a couple of little shops. Unrecognizable to me. I take that as a hopeful sign. via | Public Radio International
