On April 5 2013, Le Nouvelliste published images of the first highway to be built in the country. This highway will only be five minutes away from my house, and I could probably see it clearly from my hilly neighborhood… if it wasn’t for a tent community that’s overtaken the side of the hill.

Most people who come from the airport drive through Nazon (also known as Martin-Luther King) to reach other places in the city. Government officials inevitably drive through Nazon to reach the National Palace, Ministries and other offices. Yet this arterial road begins with the view of tarps sadly perched on the side of Morne Sylvio Cator.

More coming soon
