Haitian funeral:

  • Lots of singing
  • Often times wailing
  • Hot, hot, hot with sweat rolling from the nape of your neck to your knee-pits
  • Marching band (Tuba, trombone, trumpets and all) to lead cars/walkers to the graveyard
  • All sorts of dress-code variance ... suits and evening gowns, hats, and fancy shoes, clothes that are much too large, clothes that are much too small
  • Plastic flowers
  • El Camino 
  • Friends
