Thank you Fodors for article on Beautiful Africa (and Haiti, El Salvador...)

Thank you Fodors for the article today by Rachel Leavitt:

These are beautiful countries that many people call home. Thanks for reminding us of that. Stunning pictures.

Most enjoyable travel piece I've seen in awhile. Travel is all about getting out and finding out what you don't know. This tackled that goal (and the preconceptions behind the story) head on.

I think living in Haiti or El Salvador, etc. is "sh--" for those people. It doesn't mean that the people themselves are "sh--".
