In my memory, Haiti is a very small country and it’s one of Taiwan’s diplomatic allies. In 2010, Haiti earthquake news was reported on TV almost everyday. It was my first time to see Haiti’s landscape and my first image about Haiti was the earthquake and the flood scene. However, Ms. Rachel Coupaud’s “Se la pou la” speech totally changed my impression of Haiti.
Haiti has very beautiful beach and ocean. Their food looks delicious, people are passionate and the carnival is amazing! Ms. Rachel also showed us many impressive photos about Haiti’s culture, music, costume and religion. I am a Catholic but I am also very curious about Voodoo. Ms. Rachel mentioned a Voodoo introduction event at Taiwan this year and I will definitely go to see it.
I really enjoyed every minute of her vivid speech and I believe that all audience will start to plan their next travel to Haiti!
