HAITI, VILLE BONHEUR, Climbing to the waterfall of Saut d'eau, a height of 30 meters is not easy. Like her, the pilgrims are directed at Saut d'Eau to attend the first of the three Catholic-voodoo celebrations that attract people from all parts of the country and all social classes. During the remainder of Haitians practice ceremonies in temples called colonnades, which are a kind of sheds containing an altar decorated with paintings Iwa and images of Catholic saints with stones, bottles and tied Ron Barbancourt herbs. In the middle of the peristyle stands a mitan poto (central post), the axis between the heavenly and the earthly world and the point where the Iwa enter the enclosure. The colonnades are devoted to a particular branch of Iwa and decorated in keeping with paint on doors and walls and flags collage.
