"Ask not what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive...then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Random Thoughts

                                                                                                                                                                 Public transportation in Haiti consists of medium-sized buses (shown here) and small-sized buses called Tap Taps that are all (as you can see) ornately decorated.  This particular one caught my eye, but after I took the photo I also saw one with Tupac.  Many have religious sentiments and pictures.  

Buses and Tap Taps are usually jam packed with passengers.  Today I even saw a live rooster board the Tap Tap shown below.  I missed capturing the guy carrying it in the photo - he must have seen an open seat in the front because they both quickly disappeared inside.
The guy in this photo has a very popular treat - in the middle of the cart is a large block of ice that he shaves into a small cup.  The bottles you see on the side are filled with flavors he dumps on top.  After school you see moms buying their kids a refreshing treat for their walk home.
Completely random photo, but made me wonder exactly what they'd do if they got a flat?!  Hard to believe that they haven't noticed that their spare has completely disintegrated!
