In most of Haiti’s rural zone, saying “Good Morning” when approaching the people is more important than knowing the direction of the road. In order to better understand this concept, you should go near St Rock’s Chapel. In fact, once you say “Good Morning” to the people living in this area, they are ready to climb up the mountains “Tay Fe” or “Malanga” to take you to any house you are looking for. People close to this chapel are similar to their “kenep” (tropical fruit), believed to be the sweetest “kenep” ever. Women in the vicinity of St. Rock’s chapel do the laundry, get their clothes in the city and are clean people. Meanwhile, the men make small chairs and baskets.I knew a man called Charitab near the chapel who used to make small chairs and baskets. When he goes to the city to sell his products, he is always as overloaded as a packhorse, with everything on his head.
