Lo que más me impresionó es que uno de los primeros consejos del Sr. O’Brien es que siempre es bueno tener a la mano miel y limón para tomárselo en caso de tener la garganta carrasposa!! Será una costumbre Venezolana??
Psst: La gente de Mielpura me mandó el paquetico con la información y con otras cositas como la miel, pero no me pagaron por escribir este post, el cuento de la miel con limón es todo mío, verdad mami?
Since I remember, my mom has always said: Hija, take the honey and lemon, it’s good for you. Now he offers it to Adrian and Adrian loves it, I imagine it will soon be Maya’s turn too 🙂
So, in December the people from The National Honey Board (I’m still impressed that there is such and organization) invited me to an event where they would give us tips using honey for coping with the flu season.
I wasn’t able to go but I accepted the packet with the info because I was hearing my mom’s voice:
Hija, honey is great for you I thought it was very interesting. Plus, the information was coming from a venezuelan grammy-winning vocal coach called Kenny O’Brien so I had to be good fellow Venezuelan!
I didn’t know who he was but as soon as my mom saw the info she said: Oh wow!!!! Yes!!! Of course I know him! From Los Hermanos O’ Brien and Las 4 Monedas! So what I received was several cool tips and recipes to soothe your throat with honey plus a jar of local honey among other things.
Here is the recipe I liked the most (I know for sure that Ginger is also great for your throat):
I took advantage of the cute little jar and practiced with my forgotten 50mm lens (You can see here when I got it, 2 years ago!!), I had it in the closet getting dust, I have a love/hat relationship with it, it doesn’t have auto focus, I need to sell it and buy a new one with focus… Anyways, not much variety of pictures here I just played more with develop, which one you like best?
What captured my attention the most from Mr. O’Brien’s tips was that he always keeps honey and lemon around in equal parts to help ease sore and scratchy throats! AMAZING! Is this a Venezuelan tradition??
Psst: The Honey board sent me the package with the info and some goodies but I was not paid to write this post, the honey and lemon story is all mine.
