Let me explain why this is sad.
Blaine Watson just finished his Beyond Logic course on Vedic Astrology. We had a really great turn out… more than a full house here at the hotel.
Here is Blaine working with several delegates.
Blaine’s course had more delegates than our international investing course. This does not surprise me because so many of our delegates have an interest in looking beyond the traditional health and wealth data.
We work hard to give them great experiences… introducing them to new nutritional and health as well as wealth ideas.
We take delegates for hikes around Cuicocha Crater Lake.
Plus we take them to Chachimbiro Volcanic thermal pools are near by.
This is a wonderful natural place where we can celebrate and immerse ourselves in the pure water of Ecuador .
Here we are enjoying the purest of Ecuador water with one of our groups as we soak for health and longevity in the Chachimbiro thermal springs.
The Ecuador water comes hot out of the mountains and has one of the most healing blends of minerals in the Americas. The Ecuador water is super hot at the top, about 120 degrees.
Plus we send them to the wonderful Relais & Chateaux La Mirage Spa.
One benefit to our course is that we have a close proximity to the wonderful Cotacachi market (five minute walk). Here one can buy incredible vegetables. Those huge cabbages are between 50 cents and a dollar. You can buy more of those perfectly vine ripened tomatoes than you can eat for a greenback.
The fruit is outstanding as well. This is why Ecuador real estate for sale offers such great value.
We look at the wonderful herbs and spices there… star anise…
Sweet Pepper (black cardamom)
We provide them with recipes for purifying teas we learned from a Shaman who lived high in the Andes. Though the village where he lived had no running water, the locals always glowed and their skin looked fresh and clean. I questioned their secret and this is what they said. This cleansing is delightful and works inside and out!
Take six packets of chamomile tea, six long cinnamon sticks and a handful of black cardamom (the sweet pepper shown above). Boil them thoroughly in a couple quarts of water. Set aside a cup or two to drink. Dilute the balance in three to five gallons of water as hot as you can stand. Get in a bathtub or shower. Sit in a meditative pose, relax and slowly ladle cup after cup over your head and entire body. When through, do not rinse or towel dry. Let your hair and body dry naturally. You’ll feel clean with a warm glow, smell like apple pie and your skin and hair will shine!
Enjoy drinking the tea as much and often as you like. This is a sweet, gentle secret that you can enjoy anytime, anywhere.
We even show delegates how to gain health benefits with indigenous music. Here are a group of singers at the market.
We serve healthy coffee breaks. Here are the pulped fresh coconut balls with hand dipped organic chocolate that our maitre d Eduardo creates and serves with strawberries and gooseberries.
In short we do a lot to fill our clients’ desires for better health…including serving up an good vegetarian menu for our vegetarian delegates.
So here is the Ecuador travel warning. American Airlines does not serve vegetarian meals from Quito.
Blaine Watson is a vegetarian and when we called American Airlines to book his vegetarian meals from Quito back… even though he had a first class ticket… the reply was … sorry. No meal choice from Quito. We even called the US offices of American Airlines… to no avail.
This is sad… even sadder is the fact that American business… once the leader of capitalism and caring… no longer cares enough… to serve its clients who cannot eat meat… even on first class flights. This is a long flight.
Next time you travel to Ecuador… if you desire a special meal… check in advance. American won’t help you… unless maybe people make a fuss.
I prefer LAN and Delta anyway… but I’ll check there as well to make sure that such bad service is not catching.
Until next message, may your choices wherever you are be good.
