    Struggles of Daily Life in Haiti

    Public transportation, as it is understood in the United States, does not exist in Haiti. Most Haitians travel by private car, by bicycle, or on foot. There are about 36 vehicles per 1,000 inhabitants. The systemroad consists mainly of unmarked and unpaved roads. 

     Fifty-five gallon oil drums --just like the ones on the background of this page--are first cleaned, by burning out residue.  Then using a lot of strength, they're flattened.  Using the flattened drum a a canvas, an artist then traces an existing stencil--generally cut out of a used cardboard box--with chalk.  Using a hammer and two or three sizes of chisels, the design is then cut.  After that, the piece is polished with a wire brush and given a coat of clear lacquer and left to dry in the sun.
