Here’s what remains of Haiti’s National Palace, which crumbled and broke into thirds and lurched toward the ground in the 2010 earthquake and now is finally being demolished with the help of JP/HRO, Sean Penn’s Haiti relief and reconstruction group. Work should be completed by the end of November. Interesting to note that the central frame of the shell of the Palace, sans grandiose domes and columns, greatly resembles the structure of a little Haitian kay, or village house. (not sure how to credit this photo!)
