I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to find out that Belize has its own magazine. Right off the bat, the front cover had me – colorful – realistic pretty model – made in Belize – Promoting everything Belizean – sold locally and internationally.
I was surprised that this issue was their one-year anniversary and I had not found a copy until now – the old saying better late than never holds true here. Whether you want to play Kriol scrabble – look fab at work – practice Bush Medicine – or read something that reminds you of your favorite place to visit Belize – News Exchange is the Magazine for you.
As I was flipping through – the Living Fit section caught my eye. I am not into yoga so much though I have no doubts on the benefits and why it is preferred by many as their favorite exercise. So I was surprised that I was drawn to the article on Hatha Yoga.
What got me to stop and browse this article was good first few lines about the yoga journey of Ashanti Garcia also known as Airbender. Garcia was born and raised in San Ignacio and recently graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors’s Degree in Anthropology and a minor in Archaeology from Galen University in Indianapolis. Her dream is to become a certified instructor and conduct Belize yoga retreats. Very interesting history – you go girl.

Blue plastic Picture is part of my Belize recycling effort – for some reason gallery will not load in order. I was trying to figure out what to do with the pile up of empty coconut water containers from Healthy Belize. I decided fill the containers with tap water and put them under the bathroom sinks as hurricane supplies for flush-able water. Maureen and I figure 2 containers would give you a flush when you need one and it saves some plastic from going to the dump. The smaller container in front came from tacoboy shower soap and I recycled that to Maureen filled with Eucalyptus Dr Bronners soap concentrate – a great natural way to clean self and house.
