Haiti Going "Green"

This billboard was put up by the "Minister of the Environment" in Haiti. (Now THAT is a huge job!)

It says "Clean and Green" and shows a tree-lined road with center-lines painted and no trash or diesel fumes.

I've never seen that road.
The thought is LOVELY though. On our run Friday Beth and I actually held our breath for a good minute while clouds of dark black smoke came off of a passing truck. The Minister has not gotten to the task of regulating vehicle emissions yet. ;) We'll be thrilled when he does.
