One of my favorite things about Chicago is how you can step into another culture just blocks away from your own home. Today I stopped by the Vin Lakay celebration at Uptown's Haitian American Museum of Chicago. I was only planning to stay 15 minutes. By the time 15 minutes passed I had already learned much more than I thought I would. Then founder, Elsie Hernandez, smiled her warm smile, offered me a seat and some Haitian pastries and I spent the afternoon. The museum is open to the public Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Admission is $5. Go pay Elsie a visit.

Can you believe this beautiful work was done by an artist who was 16 at the time? The Haitian artist, now 22, has come to Chicago every year to paint at HAMOC. However, this year he will not be able to get his H1B visa.

Women Carry the Weight of the World. In Haiti today, unemployment is so profound that women support their families by making, growing and selling whatever they can at markets.
