#3108: Notes from Haiti visit
My first stop when I landed in Tampa, Fla was to go to their art museum to
check out the Haitian artists showing their works there, as mentioned by a
listed Corbettite a while back. IT WAS JUST WONDERFUL !!!!! Thank you
to whoever it was who mentioned it, it was wonderful and included a little
travelogue so my family could see beautiful Haiti.
Second, I read the book The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales by
Diane Wolkstein while on vacation too (I am probably the last person on the
planet to read it, it was so interesting....). What did I find in the middle
of the folktale called "The Master Thief" but a description of the questioned
fruit "chadèque" (pronounced shadek) which she describes as a kind of
grapefruit ... does this clear anything up for you fruit-lovers?
Anyway, if this helps, I am glad. I am so sorry to hear about the assination
today in Haiti....intolerance is everywhere! as ever and always.....
