Ngobe-Bugle Indians

Representing the largest group of indigenous peoples in Panama, the Ngäbe and Buglé tribes are distinctly different with two entirely unrelated languages. The two tribes maintain their fascinating and important cultural traditions in their communities in the Panamanian highlands. While the two groups are closely related and are generally called the Guyamí, the Ngäbe and Buglé are two separate communities of people. The Ngäbe are the larger of the two groups but when combined with the smaller Buglé tribe they make up the largest and most significant group of indigenous people in Panama.
Men typically wear Western style clothing which is suited to their agricultural and farming lifestyles. The women, however, maintain their cultural heritage by donning brightly colored dresses called naguas. These are often decorated with intricate and elaborate embroidery and the women often sell these handmade dresses to tourists for extra income.

Happy Thanksgiving or in German (so I am told):

Fröhliche Danksgebentagfestabendessenverwandtenbes
uchswünsch zum Donnerstag.

This is a really good arrangement, in the Mitch Miller tradition, of the Thanksgiving Hymn "We gather together" based on the Dutch Reformed Hymn Wilt heden nu treden composed in 1597 by Adrianus Valerius.

A very judgemental map of Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Larger copy @ http://judgmentalmaps.com/  Best part of this map: Bridge Tunnel ("slow down to 40 MPH for no f****in reason whatsoever")

Pluto is a planet again, according to Harvard astronomers.

My very educated mother never doubted that it was a planet.

After some dinner at Noodle Republic (I had Spicy Beef Broth soup, Curry Rice with golden raisins, MMmmmmM), I went to the Union Square Christmas shop Mall to take some time lapse photography. This was a pretty shot I thought.

I tried for years and years to find essential oils that reminded me of the incense at Mass. It never worked out (mostly because the incense at Mass isn't just frankincense or myrrh, but likely mixed with floral notes.) I discovered Avignon by pure chance. It's one in a series of four (the others are based on shrines in Japan, Mexico, and Thailand (which I didn't care for). Very affordable for a "niche" product too. Best for Autumn and Winter (it's a heavy scent).

The place was beautifully rebuilt after Superstorm Sandy, but I've noticed in my last few visits, the restaurant floor needs sweeping, there's trash and paper on the floor and the tables need to be cleaned more frequently. And it's not like they can't see this, staff walks by all the time. So naturally you start thinking, what's the non-public area (i.e. the kitchen) look like? The Chicken Francese is great.Friendly guys at the counter too.
