When Duvalier moves, the only way to keep up is by motorcycle. That’s why our trusty chariot, Pinotage, has been working overtime to make sure that we get the best images to cover the story. The photo above was taken by photographer Andrés Martínez Casares while we were traveling with Duvalier’s motorcade from the courthouse back to the hotel where he was staying. That’s Duvalier’s car right behind my head, and what you can’t see is that there are about 25 motorcycles all weaving in and out of the motorcade taking pictures and shooting video. What you can see in the photo is some perfect motorcycle-driving-form, and the use of the proper safety equipment. Bottom line, the photo is awesome.
