yesterday on the way back from cola de ballena I noticed the pitch dripping from large old acacias where branches had been cut. it formed hard, glossy patches on the road underneath, but was liquid with very little viscosity coming out, and it had a smell like smoke flavoring. I imagine this could, if collected, be a very useful substance for food flavoring and varnish if nothing else.
