EXO on mini-tour in Haiti
On arriving in Haiti there was a slight apprehension as well as excitement as there always is when I arrive in a country for the first time. This is probably country 110 now that I have travelled to. ?
The drive from the airport through the streets was very sad as I saw such great poverty. However, it’s amazing how well Haiti has recovered since the terrible earthquake in 2010.
After driving just over 30 minutes, we arrived at the most beautiful guest house ‘Karibuni’ owned by a wonderful lady Dominique and her husband, Ebner. They were missionaries on Conga and had to flee with their two months old child leaving every behind. God has really blessed them with this incredible business overlooking the most amazing view of Haiti.
As EXO is so well-known and loved by the French-speaking nations, over the last 17 years or so, we have travelled extensively to many French-speaking countries – France, Belgium, Montreal, Noumea, Guadaloupe, Ivory Coast, Mauritius, Congo to name a few. However, this is our first trip to Haiti to play two concerts. After just playing a few bars of the intro the audience would start singing along with the melodic lines. From the very first verse of many of the songs, they would sing along with Chris & Laura Christensen (the founders of EXO).
