Mud Cakes in Haiti

How is it that in the 21st century people are reduced to eating mud!? I cannot get my head around this. The thing that struck me so hard is that as I watched this on the news , they showed the women making these cakes and they were like little works of art. They took such time and care spreading out the mud and forming the cakes. They were really quite beautiful. Can you imagine this as your life? There will be no complaining from me today, I can tell you that much!n Cité Soleil, one of Port-au-Prince's worst slums, making the clay-based food is a major income earner. Mud cakes are the only inflation-proof food available to Haiti's poor. Photograph: David Levene
