Marvelous Molas

San Blas Islands, Panama

Postcard 1152

Christmas, 1999: Hopping on a two-seater (me and the pilot) plane bound for the San Blas Islands (a necklace of tiny islands off the coast of Panama), my trusty pilot suddenly lit up a cigarette and nearly gave me a heart attack: my chin was but 8 inches from the gas tank! By some miracle we managed to make it to the islands without being blown to bits over the Caribbean, and I spent an idyllic week among the indigenous Kuna people. Famous for their unique “Mola” needlework, I happily toted home a treasured collection of their art. Dyanne Kruger
