WORLD Magazine | Haiti's new normal | Jamie Dean | Jan 22, 10

“All around the growing piles of dangerous rubble and the squalor of rotting trash in the streets of their capital city, Haitians are living the new normal: In the shadow of a collapsed house, a woman gives a young man a haircut. On the outskirts of a park-turned-tent-city for thousands of displaced people near downtown, a little boy flies a kite made from string and a piece of trash. And near another squalid camp, reeking of trash and human waste, and filled with thousands of homeless people in the city’s central plaza—the Champs de Mars—a man sells basic supplies: small cans of deodorant and cooking oil.”
