Living Museum

There is quite a bit of interest in Rincon for preserving and sharing Bonaire's history and culture. I'm grateful for all the work a number of groups have put into museums, nature trails, walking tours and the like.
For Rincon Day, the Kanta Orkidia group set up a number of displays depicting Bonaire life in the not so long ago.
Yum! I've often wondered what Yorki, Piska Salu, Salon, Mondogo, and other Bonairian treats were. A whole bunch of them were on display here, in their raw form. Hmmm.... I'll have to admit that my tastes in indigenous Bonaire food run more to Ko'i Lechi!
I'm thankful that there are still of the older generation willing and able to share their history with us.
