Our Spanish classes took a field trip to a factory where they dry wood to make all kinds of jewelry, wind chimes, bead curtains, purses, etc... basically whatever you can think of, but all out of wood. These items are sold all over Costa Rica as tourist souvenirs.The racks of wood drying... They said the wood has to dry from 6 months to 10 years.
Nothing to do with the wood, but I really like this photo. Jared on the right and Avery on the left.
