[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Walking on the streets of Panama, I found this nice native woman working on what she is selling. Strange, but very colorful things they wear in the legs and arms. I learned that here, there are seven living indian cultures. Their simple, fascinating way of life has changed little since Columbus discovered America. In other places you would have to travel far to see an authentic Indian community, but in Panama communities are easy to get to, starting with the Embera communities which can be visited on a day trip from Panama City.

estimada sra coindreau... primero que nada le saludo respetuosamente y le comento que he visto ya algunas de sus fotos... y a través de ellas su gusto por las artes plásticas... en esta ocasión me animo a escribirle para decirle que esa artesanía panameña se conoce como "molas"... recuerdo haber tenido una (que mandé enmarcar) justamente mientras era estudiante en monterrey...

le comparto por esta vía esta lectura sobre los servicios que la red le hará a la sociedad, es un texto de la rectora de una universidad española


le reitero mi saludo respetuoso y mi deseo de seguir accediendo a su trabajo en la red...
