We had an interpreter while we stayed on the San Blas Islands.
He stayed with us anytime we went somewhere and to ensure our safety.
He told us about their culture, their beliefs and the way of the people. On the
islands, there are numerous albino people than I have ever seen
in my lifetime. They are considered to be cursed. Every
morning the men would get up and get on their boats to catch
food, or to trade. While the men were out, the women took care
of the family. If someone was able to care for the family, the
rest of the women would go to the mountain tops to pay
respects to their departed loved ones. The children played and
helped around the hut.
