While its been a week since we enjoyed the final day in Mazatlan, I’m still in touch with what’s happening in the city!
My newest friend from afar, Humberto Velazquez Lizarraga has sent me some great photos that capture the Carnival scene in the city. So, while we are thinking about winter carnivals and outdoor activities, women with little to nothing on are dancing in the streets! Not the streets of Fort Qu’Appelle or Wascana Park, but the malecon of Mazatlan!!
I will give you a run down on the trip with photos – one of these days! It was a great time. Something more important now is getting holiday peeps feeling better! The warm / hot beaches and the air-conditioning day in and day out can do a number on your bronchial tract, sinuses, you name it!
In the latest Prevention magazine I came across this Natural Remedies treatment. It might just help all those people that were coughing and hacking all the way home!
Honey – Thyme Elixir
1 large Onion – halved and thinly sliced
1 tsp dried thyme (OR 3 tsp of fresh thyme)
2 cup raw local honey
Place onion and thyme in glass, ceramic or non stick saucepan and add enough honey to fully cover. Simmer over low heat for an hour until onion becomes juicy and soft.
Pour mixture into glass jar, cover the lid and label. Store in fridge up to 1 month
Consume 1 Tbspoon daily during cold season to prevent or to treat cold.
Good Luck – that’s my comment not the magazine’s.
