During our last visit to Haiti, we took the opportunity to take some very interesting pictures revealing the beauty of the architecture, the people and the places of the city of Borgne. Some of the pictures also show how the people love to get their groove on and get loose every once in a while.
If you are from Borgne, the photos should take you back to your roots and they will also give a good idea of how the place has evolved over times, and hopefully make you wan to go back and relive some of your happiest moments.
If you have never been to Borgne on the other hand, the pics should give you a glimpse of how fun it would be to spend a few days there. We have great beaches, beautiful hotels, nice evenings spots to hang out, great haitian beers and lots more.
