Manta og Montecristi

Av den 2.2.2016 i Dagbok | 15 kommentarer

Ny dag og ny utflukt, denne gangen Manta og Montecristi. Det meste skulle dreie seg om håndverk, første stopp Montecristi og produksjon av Panamahatter. Og naturligvis rikelig med tilbud om kjøp, selgerne svermet rundt oss.

Indianerkvinne viser hvordan produksjonen foregår.

Guiden var hele tiden tilgjengelig som tolk, for det var slett ikke alle som snakket engelsk. Åpenbart vanskelig å forhandle om pris uten felles språk. Prisene varierte med kvaliteten, og den måles i antall rader pr. tomme. De billigste kostet 25 USD og de dyreste 200 USD. Hyggelig da å se at i Manta kostet samme kvalitet seks ganger så mye.

En av svært mange boder med hatter.

Og alle fire fikk kjøpt seg hatter. Vi valgte forskjellig kvalitet alle sammen.

Damene etter at deres kjøp var i boks.

Neste stopp var en liten fabrikk som produserte av cabuya. Det er et fiber som er produsert av agave, produksjonen foregår omtrent på samme måte som med ull, men først gikk de løs på bladet med en «barkespade» for å få fram fibrene.

Guiden viser fram et agaveblad og resultatet etter at en «barkespade» var brukt.

Første virkelige produksjossteg var karing, et svært tungt arbeid viste det seg, kun utført av menn. Neste steg var spinning, og her dominerte kvinnene.

Spinneriet i arbeid for oss turister.

Til slutt veving av matter, vesker og mye mer. Vi fant ikke produktet særlig interessant, selv om omvisningen var det. Men det var ikke slutt på husfliden enda. Neste stopp var et lite verkstad som produserte knapper og pyntegjenstander av tagua. Det ble omtalt som vegetabilsk elfenben. Egentlig er det en nøtt fra en palme som er hardt som elfenben, men slett ikke like tungt. Det er først og fremst knapper som er produktet, men dyktige håndverkere laget også pyntegjenstander. Det vi håpet å finne var terninger og kanskje sjakkbrikker som vet enkelte produserer. Men dette hørte ikke med i sortimentet til denne produsenten.

Hele nøtter, nøtter som er bearbeidet og eksempler på ferdige produkter.

Til slutt en snartur innom det arkeologiske museet før vi var klare for frilek.

De er stolte av å være sentrum for fisket etter tunfisk på verdensbasis.

Det er vamt å være turist på disse kanter, høy luftfuktighet er det også. Vi hadde i grunnen bare to mål, finne en skyggefull kafe med wi-fi og en kald lokal øl. Det fant vi, og på vei tilbake til båten fikk vi oss lunsj på en lokal strandrestaurant. Godt det også.

Fra egen balkon kunne vi følge med på lossing av tunfisk i store mengder.
