Embera Lady

A couple of weeks ago, on a trip to Panama, I was fortunate enough to visit a village of the Embera people. It was an enlightening opportunity. The people were friendly and welcoming. We were able to enjoy a delicious lunch with a local family. This amazing group are diligently working to keeping the native traditions alive while allowing small numbers of tourists to visit. They produce lovely handicrafts and live off the land and the adjoining river. This lady was a fine example of the beautiful faces I saw there.
