Occasional Traveler

A collection of my thoughts and photos on travel.

Ngobe Bugle

with 2 comments

November 23, 2009 | Josefina, her husband Jorge, their older son Gabriel, and my family all squeezed into their truck and drove around for a small tour!  Josefina even had her husband stop the car a few times so I could take pictures. =)  Here’s one of some of the Ngobe Bugle (I think)–

I’m not sure which group this is, but Josefina told us that most are in the area to work on the coffee plantations and are generally, very poor.   In the picture, they’re living in concrete homes, which is actually pretty good compared to some of the wooden homes we saw.  Termites are abundant in Panama so most people don’t use wood at all in their homes.
