March Baby

March is my birthday month.  As a gift to me, I took a few days off from work and flew to the Dominican Republic.  I departed to DR on Saturday, and came back today.  I relaxed by going to the beach and drinking  lots of coconut water.  I love sugar cane and had a lot of it while there.  I also ate some delicious crabs .  And of course, I inhaled the pure and fresh air of the countryside.

I brought honey on it’s most pure form from a beehive in the country-town Palm Tree. There is something about the countryside that is healing to the soul.

When I visited Betty and Roberto’s house (friends of the family), in addition to the crabs, they served us some Moringa tea.  This was my first time trying this drink and from the background information Roberto gave me about this plant, I developed a curiosity to learn more about this tree and found out that it has 7 times the vitamin C of oranges, 3 times the potassium of bananas, 4 times the vitamin A of carrots, 3 times the iron of spinach and 4 times the calcium of milk.

Here is a video I found on Youtube about the plant.

There is something very special about being surrounded by nature and getting away from the city for some time.  Nature rejuvenates me and detoxifies  me from the day to day stress.   It brings my mind, body and soul to a state of calmness and awareness.  It revitalizes me to go back to the daily routine and to the city more energized.  Just as I do a juice cleanse a few times a year, I like getting an air cleanse at least once a year.

Thank you
