About Joakin

Hello friends and family.

IMG_20141002_043938I am forever grateful for the opportunity to live in the USA, and raise my children in this great country that I proudly served.During my time in the US Marine Corps, I visited over 13 different countries and enjoyed the food and the culture of every one of them. I have learned many great things about those countries and also realized the best way to learn about a country’s culture, its food, its arts, and its people is to go ahead and visit that country.  We can not rely on the news media  to inform us about almost anything nowadays; after all there is not a big market for good news.  Bad news is where the money is!  January 12, 2010 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 shook Haiti and left a death toll of 100,000 to 160,000. Most of the country’s basic infrastructure was ruined. However; the country has fought hard to make a comeback, despite its challenges.  For the past 4 years I have been going back and rediscovered Haiti; and found something much kept of a Secret.    The streets of Haiti are flooded with foreigners; tourists are back. The beach front Hotels  and the resorts almost have zero vacancy, the restaurants are always full. The tourists are back and the news media are not reporting anything about the comeback.

Taking matters in my own hands; I decided to let my friends know about Haiti and what makes it stands apart among the other places they normally vacationed to. Haiti is not only about the beaches and the sunshine, Haiti is that specific part of the world history which has been hidden in the archives for too many years. Haiti is the true land of the Free. Visit Haiti and heal your soul.
