Tap Tap Journey is an amazing adventure, a common occurrence in the Mountains leading from Jacmel to Porta Prince and indeed throughout Haiti.  Haiti is creating roads and highways, but they are a long way from having a reliable infrastructure.  The tap tap cars and trucks are one reliable mode of transport of goods and people.  They are everywhere, bright and joyful with slogans and scripture to attract their next passenger.  The riders of this transport are taking their lives into their hands.  In Haiti, getting around is fraught with an exhilarating danger, we in America reserve for amusement rides.

The natural colors of the  majestic mountain backdrop is in stark contrast to man’s attempt to attract attention.  I enjoy the complimentary colors.
