Sights of Port au Prince

We had the opportunity to see some of Port au Prince that we had never seen.  We visited the Iron Market which actually a market structure made from iron.  It was constructed in 1891 in France and was intended to go to Cairo to be a train station.  It never made it there, but was rerouted to Haiti.  It was mangled in the earthquake in 2010 and has been restored. It is an amazing piece of culture.

We then headed up the mountainside to get the scenic look of the city - spectacular!
