Another surprise today in Agua Buena, Panama. We noticed some old cups in the cupboard of a neighbor, and before we knew it we were off to get some gourds to make bowls and cups “tradicional’. Select your gourds.
Cut off the top which also becomes the base and clean out the contents very well.
A lot of elbow grease, sanding, and decorating and you have a beautiful set of durable, traditional, Panamanian bowls and cups. Also nice to have our visitors make their own souvenirs. Very cool.
And here is a cup ready for etching and paint. I love this place!
