Call this the Miss Haiti Universe and arts and crafts edition!
Miss Haiti Anedie Azael (@anedie01) posts a video of her every move on the pageant trail and so we are going to see a bunch of her until pageant night. There are 4 videos of her in today's edition (at the gym, putting on a mud mask, hanging out with Miss Turks and Caicos) but if you go to her
, there should be even more, including her tryouts as a chef this afternoon. That she manages to document and upload her every step while also partaking in the vertiginous Miss Universe contestant activities is a testament to her energy.
My favorite for today is one of her speaking creole with half-Haitian Miss Turks and Caicos. Haitians do get around the Caribbean and Latin America and this is a good illustration!
I also discovered the ingenuous
blog today which is a treasure trove of Haitian crafts and artisanal foods and products of the sort that will make you home sick and nostalgic. Under the Leisure and #Haiti tabs you will find posts on a crochet blanket, a recycled rice bag purse, a local alcoholic energy drink that should out compete vodka red bulls, a wooden necklace, Bèlzèb herbal hand made soaps, Jacmel based Moro Barouk creations and more. The recently started blog is written by Haitian born and raised
and I really hope she keeps it up!
