How 7o Get 7o
For anyone interested in visiting out-of-the-way towns, we
publish below an account of how to get to Dondon (or how NOT
to) famed for its cave, its legendary goat and its zombies.
Several years ago a middle- ag-
ed German resident of Port-au-
Prince had his bicycle stolen down
town. A few days later he receiv-
ed a letter from a friend in Cap-
Haitien stating that some young
fellow was pushing a tOieel around
that very much resembled his arid
so he was asking, -Where is your
bike now?, Surprised and much
relieved, our friend mounted a ca-
mion and took onf like an 88 for
the Cap, soon to retrieve the loot
that had apparently been re-sold
to, a Capois. No charges were
Not a shortage pf funds, but ra-
turn to the right on a gravel and
mud road to make your way to
Dondon, this small Haitian town
situated at the lofty heights of the
clouds. Up, up, up our German
lad pushed his wheel. Each bend
in the road looked to be the last;
but no, every corner threw before
him another stretch. Soon he
found himself accompanied by a
smiling Haitian who volunteered
his services to push the bike to
Dondon at the fair rate of 2cts. a
kilometer. Roughly (the road was
too!) he had about five more of
those Haitien country miles to go.
The beauties of creation certain-
ly adorn these lovely hills about
Dondon. The multiple shades of
natural green vegetation soothe
your eyes and help you to forget
'our fatigue. There is a certain
freshness about the air, a quiet
atmosphere which only the twitter
of the birds breaks through. The
