I love Tap Taps! People all over the world decorate their trucks and buses, but ours are truly unique: the metal work, the scenes, representations of God, idols, vices, and things pleasing to the Haitian heart and eye. They say so much about who were are - the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful.The Tap Tap is truly something to be proud of. It is not simply art or transportation, but a testament to the wondrous intangible within us.
Planet Money did a piece exploring the purpose and imagery of the Tap Tap. It’s a short listen. Find it here.
