The maguey

The maguey is a plant very widespread in Mexico. This plant can live up to 30 years. It is used for several things liker:

- The aguamiel: it is a local beverage appreciated by Mexican people. They called it "water of honey" because it is as sweet as honey.

A bowl of pulque, "the magical potion" of Mexican people!

- The pulque: this is an alcohol made from the aguamiel fermented. This beverage is very energizing, it is like the "magical potion" of Asterix! A few years ago, the Mexican workers used to drink a bowl of pulque before their working day. This bowl contained all the energy necessary for working all day long without eating anything else.

- The piercings: The needles of maguey are so sharp that Mexican people use them to pierce their ears!

- fabrics and hats: the fibres of this plant are used to make fabrics as well.

- healing a wound: this plant heals wounds and is used to cure the human body.

  • Mexikatzin  - QUECHÚA
    No soy un sabio, sólo un enamorado de la vida.

    La meta no existe, el camino y la meta son lo mismo. No tenemos que correr hacia
    ninguna parte, sólo saber dar cada paso plenamente. No, no te resistas, ríndete
    a la vida. Quien acepta lo que es y se habilita para hacer lo que puede, encarna
    las utopias y lo imposible se pone a su disposición. Nuestro potencial interior
    aflora espontaneamente cuando nos dejamos en paz. El amor es a nivel sutil, la
    escencia de nuestra instancia inmunológica. Disfruta de lo que eres, recibe lo
    que venga, crea e inventa lo que necesites, haz sólo lo que puedas y
    fundamentalmente celebra lo que logras.

    La vida es un canto a la belleza, una convocatoria a la transparencia. Cuando
    esto lo descubras desde la experiencia, el viento volverá a ser tu amigo, el
    árbol se tornará en maestro y el amanecer en ritual. La noche se vestirá de
    colores, las estrellas hablarán el idioma del corazón y el espíritu ...
  • Marie  - Alors comme cela on boit!!
