Hello my friends!
I had quite an adventure today with my cousin, Majo!
It's our last day in Puerto Princesa so we decided to do the city tour. We hired a tricycle driver for $700 pesos ($16.27 US) to drive us around for the day.
First, we went to a traditional, handloom weaving plant where they transformed natural plant fibers to beautiful, functional, artisanal crafts, bags, mats, etc. The weavers make these beautiful products out of Buntal Fibers (palm tree), mangrove grass, buri sprigs and other plants.
Binuatan Creations - Binuatan is Cayunin (native palawan dialect) for creation
|Learning how they weave...|
