    Photos from the bus

    by grandmaR Updated Jan 3, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When we visited Montecristi, I tried to take photos from the bus of the town and surroundings. Some of them came out fairly clear. Some of them were blurred because I didn't give the camera time to focus or because the bus was moving too fast. They have the look of an impressionist painting. Some of them though were spoiled by reflections in the window of the bus caused by the sun coming in. My dress (a small black and white check) would give the photo a kind of grid pattern. The reflections were so pervasive that I couldn't edit all of them out - it was very sunny. But here are a few of the more interesting (or better) ones.

    Favorite thing: The plant which is used to make panama hats grows in this area, so the people live in compounds and make the hats.

    Favorite thing: It was spring when we were there, and the leaves and blossoms were all coming out. I tried to take photos of them.

    Fondest memory: We were also shown the plant from which they make the hats
