Blue Window

Snapshot of a countryside house made with dry mud and straw to add strength to the walls. The doors are made with dry bamboo wood. These houses are built by farmers in the Central Provinces through community work known in Spanish as “Junta de Embarre.” Slowly they are disappearing and replaced with cement.

  1. Wow! What a beautiful photo. I’m a great fan of windows and doors, and I love more traditional homes, whatever the style. And that blue certainly is – blue! It’s a shade we rarely see. You’ve certainly brightened up my morning!

  2. Morning Linda:

    This is a typical example of houses built in the Provinces of Los Santos, Herrera and Coclé. As progress creeps into these geographical areas, the houses are restored and the mud and straw are replaced with cement.

    I’m glad you liked the picture. I made a pledge to capture a Panama that is slowly fading away into the dustbin of history.
