Our ride is here!
Due to space considerations, I opted for the one with the orange roof.
One of the 378 San Blas Islands.
If the ship were not stopping at the San Blas Islands, I would not have taken the cruise.
Plain and simple.
I have a strong attraction to the people who live here and the work they do.
All of the ladies do excellent work, but this one is special.
Her work is exquisite.
I spent a lot of time talking to these ladies.
This reminded me of some of the villages in Orissa Province (India), where an entire village works on one kind of industry.
As you can see, the ladies wear their handiwork as well.
The item below is one of those items which had been worn by one of the ladies.
I think that gives it extra charm.
The more colors used increases the value, due to the difficulty in making the item.
I enjoy working on applique as well.
