Quiz: Who is the Raw Demolition - Man?
I'm sitting on a high balcony overlooking a lush green jungle while staying with someone who used to go by the nickname Raw Demolition. It's humid and hot around 90 degrees or so and I'm loving every second of it.
This is paradise for me. I love hot and humid weather. (Not too humid mind you but it's better than hot dry weather to me.) I've managed to escape the icy prison realm of winter in New Jersey for the moment.
At exactly 8:18am this morning the very loud jungle-crickets began making their melodic music concerto. Just before that, I was able to hear the 3 nearby rivers flowing quite clearly. I was amazed that instantly their cricket sounds went at full throttle. No sound to complete noise instantaneously.
Honestly, I don't know if these are crickets or not. They must be giant crickets if they are… because they are about twice as loud as the crickets I've heard in New Jersey and elsewhere in the U.S.
So back to Raw Demolition my host. I'll give you another clue as to who he is. Another nickname he used to go by long ago was Pineapple Fred. Does that ring any bells for you?
And by the way, I've never been a huge fan of pineapples, but the ones I've been eating here are so incredibly sweet. I love them. Maybe I should be Pineapple Roger and The 41-Year-Old Teenager.
Eating fruits in the tropics is amazing because you can get them ripe off the tree. I even liked cantaloupe down here much more than in the United States.
I'll be telling you more of my raw jungle adventure over the coming days. Today we'll be going hiking and exploring the numerous water falls around here.
Yesterday I went to the most beautiful beach that I have ever seen. What was really cool was how warm the ocean water was. And our beach had these long caves or "ventanas" in Spanish, in which the ocean water would come into.
I tried swimming all the way out of the cave, but as I got near the end of it, the waves were getting quite violent and I was afraid of getting smashed against the cave. The cave itself was about 120 feet long and the further in I went the deeper the water was as well.
Later on I swam in the ocean to the outside of the cave entrance. That was also quite dangerous as there was somewhat of a riptide. It took quite a bit of effort to swim back to the safety of the beach.
We watched the sunset. It was amazing as well. Behind the beach were many palm trees filled with coconuts. Behind that were the mountains which were covered in clouds. But at the beach it was sunny and clear with a beautiful blue sky and the blue ocean water.
Usually I don't enjoy beaches that much because the water is too cold for me to want to swim a lot. But yesterday it was just the right temperature. Not too cold and not too hot. It was perfection.
There were cliffs and lots of rock formations. From a visual perspective, this was all gorgeous. I'm sure you'd enjoy it as well.
At this point I have three mystery questions for you and you get a nice prize if you answer the questions below correctly. First person to answer all three correctly wins a yearly membership at HowToGoRaw.com. Just post your answers in the comments section below of this post.
1. Who is Raw Demolition or Pineapple Fred?
2. What country am I in?
3. What is the name of the beach I went to?
You might be able to answer the last question if you've been to that beach before or if you do some careful searching on the Internet. But first you need to figure out the first two questions to get you pointed in the right direction.
Remember: The first person to answer all three questions correctly in the comments section of this post will win a free yearly membership to - http://HowToGoRaw.com.
The first 2 questions should be fairly easy to answer. Especially if you've been following the raw food movement for the last ten years or so. Again, you can use clues I've given here by searching the Internet via your favorite search engine.
Or if you're on a certain raw food list the first two questions will likely be pretty easy to find out if you've read the email he sent out last week.
Ok then, I'll have much more to share in the coming days. Including why I stayed up all night long for 2 out of four nights.
Don't forget to answer the 3 questions below to the best of your ability in the comments section below.
The 41-Year-Old Teenager
A.K.A. Pineapple Roger
