Re: Brief comments on this week's photographs

Thanks for the review. Yes, it was a small room and most of the rooms have
very little light. This one was lighted better than the others. Yes, the
conditions that these people work under are very sad, but they are committed to
helping these kids get an education. The sad thing about it is that the people who
go all the way through school and have been well-educated find it very
difficult to get jobs that are up to their level of education. The jobs that do exist
in Haiti are laborer type jobs, and since these people are well educated,
they refuse to do this type of work. So, they end up being on the unemployment
list. It's a sad cycle.

educational level of the people.

I counted three (3), but there may be subspecies or hybrids ;o)
No, they actually did not 'notice' me at all, there was a rare
concentration of flying insects, as it happened to be practically the first
sunny (almost), hot and quiet afternoon in this summer. After all these
stormy, windy, rainy cold months.
Yes, by now we have had 5 hot days already, so life is fine!
About the environment - I have said it and repeat it over - the
World-Wide-Gathering or PF-ers could easily be organized here. Let me know
and I will organize exactly the same environment. Even better ;o)
