At this point I switched to video mode. Mere photos can't do complete justice to a stroll through the Iron Market. You have to experience the sights and the sounds, and in motion, so I took this footage, later adding some Haitian music. I uploaded this both to Vimeo and YouTube, since YouTube, with all its severe strictures, may have blocked this video in a few areas. So here are both versions, YouTube shown, the Vimeo link next, in case you are having trouble with YouTube or prefer Vimeo. Enjoy one or the other.
