Grand L'eau

 

Grand L'eau is an isolated mountain village about 2 or 3 hours from Gonaives. 

 

Grand L'eau has only limited contact with the outside world.  In order to buy food or supplies the people have to walk or ride a donkey about 4 miles to the nearest town, Ennery. 

 

Since the only road to the village is so rough and crosses several streams, it is almost inaccessible by most vehicles, even with 4-wheel drive.
