Carmen

Advice on where to go to Xcaret, still in beach of the Carmen, Mexico. Last month I was in a hotel all inclusive (Sandos Caracol, select club) near beach of the Carmen, Mexico, which is 15 minutes from Beach, (so called affectionately playa del Carmen locals), while there can take a taxi that will take them to the wonderful park called Xcaret, which is a unique experience because it has many activities such as swimming with dolphins, its small Creek, the great diversity of flora and fauna that have, as well as swim in an underground river and its night show. To visit this park I recommend the plus package, since the taxi from the hotel to the Park costs about two hundred pesos, and about two hundred twenty pesos of back ending the night show around nine o’clock in the evening (your return ticket can buy you when you get to the Park). To start breakfast well, since arriving at the park with the walk through its main environs as the chapel that is next to a replica of the hacienda Henequera, your paradise River, your greenhouse, following this path leads to a small archaeological site, which through the forest ten minutes more this what are called pozas, a few small not very deep natural pool in which you can put to swim and enjoy crystal clear waters and will surely see many fish of colors arounddo not forget to carry cameras that can be used under water. Likewise, use sunscreens that are eco-friendly, this in order not to damage the natural environment. Awarded for game at the entrance to the park they play them some samples and do not forget to carry repellent for mosquitoes, since in the afternoon these annoying bugs appear. For lunch I recommend the lagoon restaurant, which is located very close to the island of pumas and Jaguars and finished eating (like that of six evenings) directed at the Tlachco theater, so that they can set aside good places, since the show is wonderful and indescribable. Ending the spectacle of night do not forget to bring some memories of this fantastic place.

Kyudo – The Great Art Of Archery

Bow and arrows, which served as both a weapon and a tool for the ceremony, referred to in the earliest chronicles of Japan. Like art itself archery – Kyudo. Add to your well-rounded understanding with Tony Parker and this leaders thoughts. Early use of bows and arrows in Japan was basically ceremonial in nature, but by the time of occurrence of a class of professional warriors bow became the main weapon of war. Emerged two main traditions, one of them specialized in using a bow on horseback, and the second on its use in the foot. And although the ceremonial use of bows and arrows can be seen continental Asian influence, the design of the Japanese bow, like, a local. Japanese bow asymmetric: two-thirds of its length rise during the shot over the archer. This design was developed in order to horseback warriors could use the longbow, since most of the battles in early Japan was carried on horseback.

The main goal of Kyudo, art of bow, is to make good shots of the warrior, able to operate effectively in combat. This ability lies not only in the physical mastery of technique of fire, but in a balanced combination mental and physical qualities. In its earliest forms, Kyudo was aggressive martial art. But with decreasing importance of the role of archers, which occurred in the first place, because of the predominance of melee combat, and, secondly, because of the appearance of firearms, the practical value of Kyudo has become more protective. Nevertheless, the educational value of Kyudo is preserved, and it continues to be one of the ways of spiritual development. The very first and important in Kyudo – a master yugamae, proper footing, without which effective use of the bow.

And although the provisions for shooting a horse and shooting on foot, of course, differ somewhat, they are based on common principles. Both provisions are intended to establish the physical and mental domination () hand over their enemies. This state should be maintained even after the arrow is released. In training Kyudo soldier shoots in a special purpose thousands of arrows from a distance of just a few feet. It was only when his technique of shooting Kyudo is correct, it begins to increase the distance. The method of shooting inagasi (deg) was supreme test for the foot archer. With such a firing of an archer was required to maintain a continuous stream of arrows in an hour. The supreme test of horse archer was yabusame, sacred ritual, which consisted in shooting target at full gallop. Historically been a pioneer Kyudo Nihon-ryu.

Plato

If this is true the oniromancia has both prestige and psychoanalysis that becomes a sacred communication so fearsome when it warned a catastrophe was averted through sacrifices to gods apotropasicos. Euripides makes say to the defeated Queen of Troy, the Augustan Hecuba, darkness of the night! Why every obscure me come filled with terror? Sacred earth, mother of how many dreams that flutter with black wings! Of way that dreams are the children of the Earth, germinate her as the seed in the humidity. Aristotle compared to dreams with images reflected in the water: any movement distorts them creating ghosts from a real object. In Plato’s involved a strange visit debate between philosophers and is one of the few examples in which antiquity recognizes the woman an equal footing to discuss with illustrious men. Diotima believes There dreams caused by demones. They must come from them then follows Aristotle since if they come from God only sonarian divorce men and it is known that the worst scoundrels also dream of.

The Stoics divided according to this curious scale dreams according to their origin: a) dreams that come from God b) dreams caused by demons c) from dreams of the human soul I ignore the bases on which settled his theories about the dreamy sources but within their twins correspondences between the macrocosm of the world and the microcosm of the soul did not see any objection to a continuous communication between the Cosmos and each person that dreams were a renovated evening expression. According to the decedent Posidonius of Rhodes the divine component of the soul can know by itself the future under its nature; In addition, added as if it were something so obvious that it wasn’t necessary to remember it all air It is loaded with spirits that converse with the soul and what is already known, if they want to, the same gods can tell us while we slept in an act of astonishing dream rufianeria. By what counts people who have fallen asleep by my side, maybe the gods are kept dumb but I put very talkative when you close your eyes. Do not remember having spoken to Jahveh, Jupiter or wing. It is well known that subaltern gods or their Cadet usurp the throne of heaven, and surely they talk in the evenings with my diminished spirit, if it is I have.

This theory of correspondences between the macro and microcosm can seem arbitrary and Pilgrim and however is nothing more than the confirmation of the causal chain that physics accepts without reservations and that Hume does not doubt in cataloging between our bad habits. When Cicero tried to translate the Greek thing undivided created the individual word. Atoms from Democritus he won it after people but Democritus used it to describe the qualities of its fractious and Dark atoms which carry messages that explain dreams in which Apollo warns me of a danger or illness to oscillate continuously in a vacuum: dreaming a placid stream slipping between stones can be the bucolic notification that I suffer renal lithiasis, according to the book of Hippocrates that all liquid or aquatic dreams diagnose urinary woes.

New Zealand Summer

Well, as any subject of this style, the discussions are endless. There are never any winners or losers, and there are forums with more than 10 pages in length in which sobreexcitados Forero discussed to death defending his position. Far from wanting to fight with anyone, I will outline the key points of making a trip to New Zealand in summer or winter. New Zealand in summer: points in favor: the main features that make New Zealand special in its summer (our winter) are especially climate type. New Zealand is not excessively rainy but if it is true that it is much easier to find days cleared in summer and the temperatures in the high mountains of the southern island will be most welcome.

Since then, if we travel in camper we will thank the warmth. It should be noted that during the Christmas season is when many of the trees bloom and the show is awesome, especially with the Pohutukawa, a type of typical tree of the coast of the North Island. Areas like the Coromandel peninsula or the Far North are incredibly fine at this time. Points against: sticky Auckland nights are famous. Since then the heat next to the sea always brings moisture, and Auckland is no exception as great city that is. It must be considered also tourism and vacation of the kiwis. We are going to find more people around the country, natural destinations will be fuller and perhaps the picture of peace and serenity where New Zealand both presumed will be lost a bit. As the worst point, Christmas flights are very expensive and it is also high season for motorhomes with what the trip can drain us pockets.

If we can go in late January or February, or in October or November it would be much better since we will avoid least expensive flights of the Christmas period. New Zealand in winter: points in favor: there is a special advantage over other countries. It appears that almost all of the vegetation is evergreen. This means that trees are not bare in winter and the spectacle of flora almost as impressive in summer. The Greens are still extremely green. We will discover the South Island as it is during the greater part of the year, in its most savage aspect, with the snow-capped peaks, rivers and strong winds. We will discover the purest and least crowded New Zealand, we are going to enjoy these moments virtually one-on-one with New Zealand and who we have brought with us for the trip. The price is incredibly cheap. More extreme can get a 21 day trip with flights from Spain and rent a motorhome for just 600 Euros in cases. Points against: cold can be truly hard in the Interior of the South Island areas. Sleeping in caravan we should keep open heating and sleep with all available blankets on top if we don’t want to wake us up in the form of ice cube. Some routes, such as the Milford Track, considered the most beautiful excursion in the world, are closed at this time. Cruises by the fjords and the activities of whale watching whale watching or swimming with dolphins or any topic related to water are less desirable. Although there is always room for a helicopter flight to the top of a glacier!

Restaurant La Senda

Find it me difficult writing this post because I do not have more than good words for restaurant La Senda and it might seem that you roza peloterio, although we will, that you have to do it, this place is great. Found thanks to my friends, and booked online through restaurantes.com! It made me laugh, when I said that I would go to dinner at the path, some of my friends tell me ah, el Bulli’s Torrero and the truth is not them wrong by giving it that name. David serves us reinterpretations of traditional dishes and inventions that arise from his head. You know give a twist to what serves us in the dish. In addition, and this has seemed amazing, responds to all the questions that are posed on the menu.

I stayed with the desire to ask how did potato ash but esque had already made too many questions lol. The way of working of this restaurant is somewhat different to what we are accustomed. We do not choose a la carte but there a menu closed tasting at the unique price of 30 euros, drinks to part. I was surprised that the price of wines and drinks was reasonable enough, come on, that not gained it us in other places to price of caviar. Well, going to the heart of the issue that is so you are going to be ballpark. The tasting menu which we served consists of 5 (3 starters, fish 1 and 1 meat) dishes and dessert.

To start the dinner, they served a lukewarm pumpkin cream with ice cream of melon, squid to grill and air of ham. For my taste a spectacular dish. The contrasts between flavors and temperature difference in ingredients made this dish a delight for the palate. Then they served us some potatoes to riojana style 2011.
