GYENYEN DAN NOU! That was my total go to Haitian line for the past few days.

What’s the translation you ask? Show me your teeth. Not smile for me or say cheese but, show me your teeth! Why this particular sentence worked I have no clue but, once I saw the response, I used it quite often.

Next time you’re in Haiti and trying to get someone to laugh, loudly toss out a “Gyenyen dan nou” and watch the reactions. I promise you will not be let down!
