Town (and craft) hopping

And we’re off! We’ll be town-hopping through Thursday. Our first stop is Rio Sucio, in which an artisan association in an indigenous reserve focuses on weaving baskets and accessories. Then, we’re off to Anserma to learn the local craft surrounding locally grown silk thread weaving (they even create accessories with the dried cocoons!) And our final stop will be Aguadas, in which the iconic “Panama Hat” (not Panamian, as it turns out) are created.
