Mmm Monday: Traditional Mayan Dish

Please share a photo of your favorite delicacy by clicking Mr. Linky below. Thank you.

Mayan Dish
Location: Big Falls Village, Belize

 
One of the highlights of our trip to Belize was a visit to a Mayan family in Big Falls where we learned about their culture and ancient ways. It was all worth it and something I wouldn’t forget for a long time.

Our host served us an authentic Mayan chicken dish complete with vegetables grown from their garden and traditional cocoa drink. Following local custom, we ate with our hands without fork and spoon. It surely made the experience of eating the food more intimate..

Boat Made of Plastic Bottles
Location: Punta Gorda, Belize
 
Love it or hate it, recycled art is coming into vogue. If you care to look, it’s everywhere to appreciate and bring awareness to issues confronting the environment.

While in Punta Gorda, Belize last summer, I saw this boat made from discarded water bottles by the staff of the Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE), a local conservation group. Most definitely, it fits the bill.

Bottled water looks so harmless that its potential for mischief can be easily overlook. To start, it doesn’t come cheap as far as energy consumption is concerned. It uses plastic for container which is derived from oil. It costs energy to manufacture that container, to fill it up with water, to package it, to deliver it, to dispose of it and recycle it. Lots of energy are expended through all these processes, which contribute to global warming. Considering that it’s used only once, it doesn’t seem justified.

If you care about the environment, bottled water is the most incorrect way to quench your thirst. Besides, who really needs it when there’s a cheaper alternative? Tests after tests have shown that it’s no better than tap water in most cases.
