Haiti, Grande Anse - Abricots - Dame-Marie - Jéremie.

Souvenirs de la Grande Anse - Photos by Max Zamor.

Narration by Frankie Morone.

A vibrant and very beautiful country, rich in art and music. Jeremie - Dame Marie & Abricots are full of forests as you can see. When ones speaks about our land, you can feel music, dancing, drumming and voodoo practices, "la mer - Le rhum - Bel plezi". Jeremians people are intensely spiritual and are known for their legendary passion and humor. So many writers, poets and historians are from that region: Etzer Villaire - Emile Roumer. The author Alexandre Dumas' father, General Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, was born in Jérémie.

Every one knows those famous verses:

Tu es le bœuf salé,
Le dumbreil de mon pois,
L' akassan au sirop,
Qui coule dans ma garganne...

Ca c' est Jeremie - Dame - Marie & Abricots 100%. Enjoy those picture and please make a comment.


Jeremie - Abricots - Dame - Marie are located at the end of the south peninsula. Some of the pictures are breathtaking for instance "les laveuses à la rivière ".


Jérémie is the capital of the department of Grand'Anse with a population of about 34,000 people. It is almost isolated from the rest of the country and accessible mostly by boats. In others words getting there by car is a bit dangerous and one has to be careful. The Grande - Anse River flows near those villages.

By the way, does anyone know why " Abricots" was called "Abricots ? See the answer under picture # 33. Good luck.

      C' est tellement bien dit! J' aurais pourtant enleve le mot: " Quand meme " et j' aurais dit tout simplement: " C' est si  beau d' etre chez soi".sans aucun regret.
