VIDEO:Cruise Controversy in Haiti

[flv: 480 360]

Cruise ships are bringing tourists to a private Haitian beach resort, which is less than 200km from the quake-hit capital Port-au-Prince.

The scene of comfort and joy, on an island where thousands of people have died or are in dire need of food, water and medical, has provoked much controversy and concern.

However, many of the tourists and the cruise company have said that they are helping Haiti's economy by spending money in the Caribbean island.

  1. - Wow what beautiful potrarits. I'm just starting my photography adventure, and haven't adventured into potrarits yet. I feel like I need to get my skill set much more solid prior to asking people to let me take their photo; I want to be able to capture their beauty, as you have done here.~J
