ŽHaitians practice their ice skating skills at a basketball gym that has been transformed to host the upcoming event, "Haiti On Ice" in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Organizers originally tried to hold the show outdoors, but they finally surrendered to the heat and moved indoors. But it'€™s still August, and it costs $1,600 an hour to run the generator that keeps the ice cold.

Doubters said it was crazy to try to put on an ice show in the blazing Caribbean heat that bakes the hemisphere's poorest country. Yet, after nearly a year of postponement after postponement, it looks as if the ice show will actually happen. This weekend. Maybe. If the ice doesn't melt.
