Aristide back in Haiti

The class gathers around the little television set on the porch to see what former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide has to say on his arrival in Haiti after 7 years in forced exile in South-Africa.

Aristide was mostly talking about being thankful to be back in his country. He did not say anything about the reason of his return at this moment in time.

The students have mixed feelings about this timing, because they wonder what the effect will be on the presidential election coming Sunday.
