Today is October 12 ,,, traditionally Columbus Day!
Movement for change … Indigenous People Day …

It Is What It Is


~~October 12, 2015~~


Since 1992, Berkeley has renamed Columbus DayIndigenous People’s Day” in support of the world’s indigenous peoples that have suffered greatly under the Europeans’ conquest of the new world.

Such incredible arts & crafts have come from these cultures, from the Native Americans, the aboriginal cultures of Australia and New Zealand, the Berbers in Morocco, and throughout the rest of the world. in honor of all of those cultures, today seemed like the perfect day to share images from the Chichicastenango Market in Guatemala. The most colorful market in the world, “chi-chi” is held on Thursdays and Sundays with vendors offering fruits, veggies, pottery, textiles and other traditional k’iche’ maya crafts.

Here’s to cultural preservation, understanding, and unity!

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
