Tying the knot

Wednesday, October 12, 2005

Last week Anne and Laurent, a French couple that has been working in Fondwa for two years, were married in the French Embassy in Port-au-Prince. Some people might find it odd to marry without their friends and family just two weeks before returning home. To those doubters, Fr. Joseph responds: "It must be Haiti!"

The day after the wedding, they invited many of their friends to celebrate the occasion with a party on the beach in Jacmel. They rented a yellow school bus to pick everyone up, and we all went together. There was plenty of food, drink, and dancing, enough to last through the night. I ended up strewn across four chairs by the time everything wrapped up at 5 in the morning, but the more adventurous souls kept the party going. Below are a few photos that capture the eclectic nature of the evening. I guess there's nothing quite like tying the knot in Haiti.
