Cuantas veces te levantas por la mañanas y te das cuenta que no sabes que ponerte. 
Que me pongo es algo que me quita mucho tiempo además de producir grandes quebraderos de cabeza.

Basilica Catedral de la Asuncion or the Cathedral of León. One of the most spectacular roofs that I have stood on but as a church it is not short on funding to restore and maintain the roof. 
Built over a period of 67 years (by 10,000 people, 4,000 died during the construction), ending in 1814 and consecrated by Pope Pius IX in 1860. This  magnificent building still maintains the status of being the largest cathedral in Central America. It was awarded UNESCO status in 2011.

Today I feature a pretty and colorful frog found in Costa Rica, the Strawberry Poison Dart Frog, also known as Blue-Jeans Frog... just look at it and you will understand these names.

The administration has just announced plans that could allow the indefinite detention of migrant children and families. As @savethechildrenactionnetwork CEO Mark K. Shriver writes, "We cannot allow the federal government to use children as pawns in the battle for immigration reform. As a nation, we are better than this." Link in bio to read the latest update.

Nick picking out the perfect produce for our meal that day. One of the things we miss most about long term travel in Central America is the markets. Each day we bought our food freshly picked!  San Pedro, Lake Atitlan 🌴🌋 Guatemala 🇬🇹 February 2014 🦋💙

Si bien es cierto que la cetosis es el tema dietético de moda, la dieta cetogénica tiene más de 100 años, en 1924 fué adoptada por la clinica Mayo pero ya se utilizaba desde el año 1860 como tratamiento para obesidad, sobrepeso y epilepsia, el auge en los últimos años es porque se han visto innumerables beneficios para la salud, rendimiento mental y físico, además de ser un alto protector y reversor de enfermedades.

Ver animales en su hábitat natural, sin acosarlos para tomarles fotos ni mucho menos extorsionarlos con comida, es el regalo más hermoso de la naturaleza. Este mono cariblanco apareció de pronto y se quedó quieto, mirándonos fijamente. Sus ojos me dan mucha ternura y me fascina cómo usa la cola. La naturaleza nos comparte sus secretos si miramos con atención y paciencia.

Іsla Mujeres!🔥
Или в переводе с испанского – Остров Женщин. Да, это Карибы! Мексиканские Карибы!
🌴Песок, солнце, пальмы, Карибское море и очень классная ночная жизнь… Здесь так легко потерять время (главное не потерять голову)! Что делать, чтобы полюбить этот остров раз и навсегда? Мы спросили об этом у нашей турлидерки @vovksofia❤️ Никаких секретов – все очень просто:
🔹приехать минимум на несколько дней (но не на выходные)
💃спать днем, чтобы потом полночи тусить в барах, слушать живую музыку и танцевать
🚲взять в аренду гольф-кар или велосипед – и просто покататься по острову
🔹проведать черепах и акул
🔹привыкнуть, что игуаны здесь – как коты в наших краях
🍤есть морепродукты. Севиче из рыбы, креветки или осьминог – вкуснятина! 
Ну что, поехали с нами?🙌

One of the Airbnb we stayed at had the most magical settings one can imagine. Not only did it have a private dock with a rope swing. The property also had water covered pathway to walk on. It gives on prospective on how much the water has risen in the past few years on lake atitlan.

Natural Pools of Millpu 🌾 “This place is located in the middle of Ayacucho Region 💫 we thought this place would be a good one night stop over, on our way to Cusco. However, it turned out to be a 4 day detour up in the Andes Mountian Range! Endless dirt roads, limited accomodation, no tourists and a whole heap of other mini adventures within this massive adventure! We eventually made it to this amazing location 🙌🏽 of roughly 20 turquoise natural pools nestled into the mountains” thank you @smwysel for sharing #TheTravelWomen

Evelyn Hernandez saß nach einer Fehlgeburt fast drei Jahre in #ElSalvador in Haft - wegen einer angeblichen #Abtreibung. Nun wurde die 21-Jährige, die wegen Mordes verurteilt worden war, freigesprochen. Hernández hatte öffentlich erklärt, dass sie vergewaltigt worden war. Einige Monate später habe sie starke Schmerzen im Bauch gespürt und anschließend eine Fehlgeburt erlitten. Sie sagte, sie habe nicht gewusst, dass sie schwanger gewesen war.
Nach ihrem Freispruch zeigte sich die 21-Jährige erleichtert: "Gott sei Dank, der Gerechtigkeit wurde Genüge getan". In El Salvador herrscht ein drakonisches #Abtreibungsrecht. Häufig werden Fälle, in denen Kinder tot zur Welt kommen oder kurz nach der Geburt sterben, von der Justiz als Morde eingestuft. Die Strafen darauf liegen zwischen 30 und 50 Jahren Haft. Von #Menschenrechtsaktivisten wird dies scharf kritisiert. So lobte die Organisation Amnesty International den Freispruch für Evelyn Hernandez und forderte, dass El Salvador nun der "diskriminierenden Praxis der Kriminalisierung von Frauen" ein Ende setze. Zur Zeit sitzen dort 16 Frauen wegen Abtreibungen oder Totgeburten im Gefängnis.
