January 19, 2010

OK folks…unless you’ve been living under a very large rock…you by now know what happened to Haiti on 12 January…the Alternative Spring Break Haiti project is officially on hold since the country would most likely sink to the bottom of the Caribbean Sea if one more group where to arrive to try to help…We’ll be sure to let you know when we kick everything back into gear…
In the mean time…I will be blogging about general observations I have been making about the overall situation and relief efforts in particular…so stay tuned. Phil A.

“A week in the life of Haiti Cherie” internationally supported project just six months away.

Seoul, South Korea – August 17, 2009 – Today marks the six months point from the launching of “A week in the life of Haiti Cherie” the photo book and school project slated for Haiti.

More than 20 international photographers and photojournalists have volunteered to travel to Haiti in order to document all aspects of Haitian life for one week and produce a large format volume as a testament to Haiti.

“This is going to be the most talked about photo book on Haiti ever” predicts the project founder and current program manager Phil Anglade. “We have been planning this for more than 10 years and to see it finally come about is truly gratifying” The international photographers and photojournalists who will be contributing their time and effort to the project are from Hungary, Taiwan, France, Estonia, The Netherlands, Thailand, Israel, South Africa, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Venezuela, Korea, USA and of course Haiti…to name a few. They will travel to every corner of Haiti and truly experience Haitian life before, during and after Carnival 2010.

A documentary film entitled “Behind the scene of Haiti Cherie” will also be produced with support from various universities and media professionals.

A full week of activities is envisioned starting with a mega musical performance by various artists and numerous other activities throughout the week and ending with the ground breaking ceremony for the school.

The “Haiti Cherie” photography and media production school will offer a wide variety of courses to equip under privilege young adults with marketable skills they will in turn be able to use in order to support themselves.

Where exactly is Haiti again?

Paris Confused Over Her Namesake
September 28, 2006 at 8:12 AM
Paris Hilton’s back–to reassert her idiocy as a world traveler. Popsugar reports the Ms. Hilton signed up to shill for a line of new “eco-friendly” bags. For every bag purchased, the company plants a tree in a needy area.
The company turned to Paris, in hopes she would accompany them on a trip to Port-Au-Prince to plant 40,000 trees next month. Apparently, when Paris was told about the trip, “she had no idea where Haiti was.” Well, of course, there are poor people there (gasp!). When told the country is primarily French speakers, Paris replied with, “I wouldn’t mind spending a few days there and a weekend in Paris.”
No word on whether our favorite clueless heiress is still hawking for the line or not.

Strategies for Finding Cheap Airfares in 2009

January 19, 2009

 

Sign Up for Deal Newsletters and Price Alerts

by Molly Feltner, SmarterTravel.com Staff – January 19, 2009
You can find great deals the same way we at Smarter Travel do: by signing up to receive airfare sale emails from the airlines and other providers. “These days, good deals are gobbled up quickly. By signing up for newsletters and alerts, consumers can make sure that they are the first to know about the latest and greatest travel deals,” says Clem Bason, vice president of merchandizing for Hotwire.

Not only will you find out about general sales, you may also gain access to exclusive subscriber-only sales. “Sign up for every airline’s newsletters and frequent flyer programs, and reap the rewards of promo code fares,” says George Hobica, founder of Smarter Travel’s sister-site Airfarewatchdog.com. “These are the real bargains now as airlines attempt to drive traffic to their websites.”

Besides sale and promo code emails, you can also register for customized emails from sites that monitor prices on specific routes and alert you to pricing trends. These sites may help you decide the best time to buy fares. In my opinion, Farecast’s alert service is the most reliable such tool out there, although it doesn’t work for some smaller airports.

Number of college and university students in the US and Canada?

January 19, 2009

Can anyone guess as to the numbers of college and university students in the US and Canada?
Whatever that number, I would like to suggest that 1/100th of 1 % consider spending their spring break in Haiti this year…do you think that is asking too much?
