Making Pilas: Putting the Dots

Making Pilas: Putting the Dots

First of all, I read ALL your comments. I don’t always find time to reply every single comment, but I do read each one. Second, I keep requests in my to-do list. Third, eventually I get to your requests as time and circumstance allow. Fourth, I don’t follow a logic order; what can I say, I love films like Irréversible or Tarantino’s films because of the creative use of story lines.

So, we begin a new series about making pilas, washbasins, as requested by Margaret on the entry The Venerable Colonial Pila is Now Used as Decoration. Pilas pues, Manolo would say!

The last step of the Guatemalan pila building process is putting those little white dots. Eduardo Gonzalez, the owner of the factory, has over 24 years of experience building washbasins and a quick and sure hand that splatters the right amount of dots.

What step do think will come next?
