Surprises and Shopping!

Home again!!!!! Our trip to Boquete and Volcan were great... and our trip to Panama City was
also!!! I have many pics ofcourse.... and I bought back 23yds of fabrics!!!!! That I will take pics of later... because you really gotta see all the wonderful fabrics I found down there....
Thanks to Rico's Cousin and her family Panama City wasn't scary like I thought is was going to be!!
But now I must talk about what we came home to yesterday evening.....
A baby chinchilla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Powder had a baby!!!! Look how cute and little he is!! Check out his tiny little face! They are the cutest things ever. Baby Chins are born with all their hair, teeth, eyes open and running within seconds after being born. And they make the cutest squeaky baby noises!!!! I can't tell yet if this baby is a boy or girl.... We have named it though... which isn't a good sign because that means we'll probably keep it and not sell it like I told Rico I would if they had babies.... oops!
Below are some shots shopping at the Kuna Indian vendor set ups. The Kuna make the most beautiful fabric art called Molas..... yeah, I bought a few...


The Kuna dress very traditionally... and they are very tiny people!!!

I love the beaded bands they wear on their calves! I didn't find anyone selling those though....
We did buy a few of their beautifully beaded necklaces!








Above, I'm trying to decided which Mola to buy... Thats Kissy in the pic too, Rico's cousin. I probably wouldn't have even gotten to go here had it not been for her and her husband braving Panama City's crazy traffic!!!
The two Mola's on the far right... yep, they are mine now!!!
More later... I have sooooo much to catch up on here! And I have to get to work on the costume orders I have because I am SO broke now! You will understand why after you see all my fabric!
