Paifala (American Samoa) - Half-Moon Pies from This recipe is from week six of my food blog, "Travel by Stove."

This is the Citadelle Laferrière. It is the largest fortress in the Americas and was designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a World Heritage Site in 1982. The mountaintop fortress has itself become an icon of Haiti. The Citadel was built by Henri Christophe, a key leader during the Haitian slave rebellion, after Haiti gained independence from France at the beginning of the 19th century. #TheHaitiTheyNeverShow
