From Palatka, Florida to Guanaja, Honduras

From Palatka, Florida to Guanaja, Honduras

Getting to the village of Savannah Bight in Guanaja, Honduras is not an easy thing to do, but well worth the effort.  It's a place like most of us cannot imagine.  No malls or grocery stores, no mail carriers to fill your mailbox.  My TV had one channel, ESPN.

First, let me tell you I am not from Palatka, I live in Fleming Island. But, Palatka was very important to the success of the trip.

The idea briefly, is the ability to (1) be absorbed into the body, (2) being the "right" nutrient so it can be utilized before it reaches the intestines and (3) being properly expelled (leftover nutrient) from the body in 3-7 hours
