For once, I will participate with Jake’s Sunday Post on the correct day! His theme is Natural Resources, an easy one for me on this quiet Sunday morning! Although all tropical countries value bamboo/canya, the creative use of bamboo in Ecuador catches my eye quite often.
Strips of flattened bamboo transform a patch of sand into an instant bamboo floor!
This slideshow, which includes the above images, also shows the stages of preparing the bamboo and palm-thatch ‘porch’ for the riverhouse.
Thanks, Jake, for an earthy challenge!
When I am finished with my present painting, perhaps I’ll do something Bamboo!
