16 There are special moments when the sheer exuberance and joy of the human spirit, shining so brightly, transcend all the negative forces and we nd ourselves walking on air! Another in a long list of Guatemalas bestkept secrets is the fantastic annual Carnival of Mazatenango: an event virtually unknown to those outside the Pacic Coast region. I do not recommend Mazate for those who need luxury accommodations and require that everything be according to an orderly schedule. Mazate is typical of the Pacic coastal towns in Guatemala, the hustle and bustle of the multitudes in the sweltering heat can be daunting, and the cacophony of children shouting, buses honking and vendors hawking creates a kaleidoscopic, swirling, sensory barrage that can be disarming for a lightweight or rookie traveler. But for those of you who are adventurous or wish to begin to be so, Mazate may become for you, as it is for me, a magic wonderland. Carnival is a period of public revelry typically held the week before Lent in accordance with the Catholic calendar. According to some sources the word carnival comes from the phrase: carne para baul or meat for the devil because it was the last lustful celebration and feast before lengthy fasting.

18 through the ingenuity of its creator. Other girls will be wearing real grass hula skirts likewise painted in psychedelic colors. It is all for maximum fun and the big party of the year for the entire population. I know now why kings of old were entertained by dancing girls. In my normal life I am a wildlife photographer and it is my job to seek out and photograph the incredible beauty I nd in nature. But nothing is more beautiful than to see the girls of carnival dancing through the streets of Mazatenango. During carnival week every day there is something dierent. ere is the childrens parade in the morning, the parade of carnival oats, a horse parade and the wild nocturnal adult parade. e carnival culminates with a masked ball at the municipal salon. Lent is the period preceding Easter that in the Christian Church is devoted to fasting, abstinence and penitence in commemoration of Christs fasting in the wilderness. It runs from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday. Carnival is celebrated all over Guatemala with small parades and events. If a little child sneaks up behind you and breaks a colorful egg stued with confetti on your head, this is to be taken as a sign of aection. It is a tradition in Guatemala. So, when you notice people all over the place with confetti in their hair, now you know why. Only in Mazate do we nd big carnival parades. ey cannot compare in opulence with the events held in Trinidad, V eracruz or Merida. But what the Mazatecos lack in nancing they make up for with their exuberant spirit. If you look closely, all the costumes are homemade. Mothers work all year to do the very best with what the family has to create costumes of incredible color and variety for their children. One costume may be made of white satin adorned with painted peanut shells and other common objects made magical Feb. 3-17: cultural activities and the election of the queens. Feb. 18-26: more cultural events and parades. Feb. 21, Tues 9am: Carnival! B eginning at 1a av., z. 1 the parade ends at the Campo de la Feria. This carnival has been celebrated for 127 years.

Welcome to the laid-back, friendly Pacic Coast of Retalhuleu, a destination that caters to everyone from beach bums and nature enthusiasts to budding historians and coee connoisseurs. In this months Revue, we present two destinations outside of Retalhuleu, both a gentle winding ascent up the coastal piedmont: Nueva Alianza, an organic, fair-trade coee and macadamia farm; and Reserva Patrocinio, a privately owned nature reserve and bird-watching hotspot. Nueva Alianza is a unique community and organic coee/macadamia association, founded in 2004 by a group of 40 families who had worked the land together for ve generations under a private plantation owner. e community has worked hard over the past seven years to improve its quality of life, increasing access to education and undertaking a major housing project. Spend the night or make it a day trip; the community is equipped with a comfortable ecohotel (the old, refurbished ...continued page 87

20 From building houses out of cardboard boxes in his parents electrical store when he was a child, to designing candy stores at the university, Franklin Contreras was always destined to be an architect. e talented Guatemalan now owns his own rm, which employs over 200 people, and their designs stand out as pieces of art, especially along the streets of La Antigua Guatemala. Having grown up in the historic city, the architect long ago fell in love with its distinctive Spanish Colonial style. It still surprises me every time I go inside a house here; each door hides something new, says Contreras. Its a privilege to work in such a beautiful place: eres no stress and no problem with trac slowing down construction. Within his work, the Guatemalan architect draws upon Moorish motifs, such as Moroccan brickwork, domed cupolas and water features, to soften the Spanish Colonial style. After graduating from Francisco Marroqun University, Guatemala City, in the late INTERVIEW by Anna-Claire Bevan Franklin Contreras Franklin Contreras

211980s, Contreras rst project was to build a furniture workshop on a plot of land his father had bought him in Antigua. However, it soon became apparent that the young architect had bigger plans: He constructed an elegant two-story building with a central patio and interior gardens, where his company still resides, and from there his career took o. First he built for foreigners and then for locals, with many clients moving into their homes before they were even completed. Each of his designs is unique and intended to surpass the customers expectations. I like the challenging clients; when people agree with me too often, its boring. I like it when people have their own ideas, and I have to nd ways to full them, says Contreras. Contreras acknowledges his style has changed since he rst became an architect over 20 years ago. I think that over time youre exposed to dierent sources of inspiration. I like to travel and that has denitely changed my way of designing spaces and architectural details. e designer remains unaware of what makes his style of architecture unique to him. I dont know whether its the curved ceilings, the materials we work with, or the use of axis that remains a constant, but people often tell me they recognize my designsI hope thats a good thing! he laughs. Even his modern designs retain their traditional roots and the architect is able to perfect the balance between preserving the traditional and evolving with the fashions. Before, kitchens were closed areas for the cook, but now cookings ...cont. page 56

34 E D UCATI ON by Anna-Claire BevanWhen you look at the portraits of kings, high priests and other nobles on Mayan stelae, murals or painted ceramics you can see how much attention the Maya dedicated to their clothing. Each ritual, every ceremony, had special clothing. Even peasants wore at least a loincloth. Most of the women of the elite class wore expertly decorated outts, almost always of some form of woven cloth. e Maya also made string and cordage (rope and comparable materials) from scores of dierent roots and vines. e selection of material depended on rank, status, purpose of the clothing, and whether the outts were for the hot humid Lowlands or the chilly Highlands. e ancient Maya (and Aztec and their neighbors) tended to make their clothing from cotton, various kinds of agave or comparable plants, and bark paper. e botanical or Latin name for cotton is Gossypium hirsute. Cotton in the form of kapok, from ceiba trees, is a dierent berimportant, but not widely used for weaving and clothing. I had thought there were two world centers of cotton origin: pre-Hispanic Mesoamerica and Egypt. us, I was surprised to learn that the primary origins of cotton were, in addition to Mesoamerica (Mexico and Guatemala), in Peru, India and southern Africa. It turns out that the cotton for which Egypt is so famous is a modern-day cotton! I also assumed that Egyptian cotton was white and native Mesoamerican cotton was brown, or at best, o-white. But it turns out that pre-Columbian cotton was probThe Continuing Search for Sacred A nimals and E xotic T ropical Plants by Dr. Nicholas M.

Wild cotton plants are over 2 meters high, some up to almost 3 meters. Cotton in industrial plantations tends to be under 2 meters to facilitate picking by machine. Most of the modern commercial cotton that I have seen is not much above 1 meter in height. e rst non-industrial cotton I found in Guatemala was south of Rio Dulce at Frutas del Mundo farms of Dwight Carter. I was shown this interesting agricultural farm by Kevin Lock, a knowledgeable local guide. Algodones Mayas Guatemala sells products made from organic cotton in La Antigua Guatemala; it raises its cotton on the Costa Sur. Also, the cooperative Asociacin de Mujeres en Colores Botanicos, at Lake Atitln, has plenty of locally grown cotton. e cotton owers may vary in the same plant between rose colored and yellow (one or the other, not in between). ...continued next page Cotton bers, San Juan La Laguna ( ) The ancient Maya tended to make their clothing from cotton, various kinds of agave or comparable plants, and bark paper.

So it is important to locate organic cotton and learn where it can be obtained. Dwight Carter provided hospitality and local knowledge at his Frutas del Mundo farm. Well worth visiting if you are near Rio Dulce. We found the cotton by pure coincidence as we were driving out the gate area, since we visited Dwights place to study zapote and annona fruits, not expecting to nd cotton. We appreciate the permission of the organic cotton store, Algodones Mayas Guatemala, to photograph its samples. We look forward to visiting its cotton farm in the Costa Sur when the next crop is available. Maria Cristina Sicay, of the Asociacin de Mujeres en Colores Botanicos, San Juan la Laguna, provided knowledge and hospitality in their facilities. To make an appointment to visit, e-mail: cooperativabotanica@ yahoo.com.mx We also thank Hideo Kojima for his insights on colorants for Maya weaving. I observed these colors on a large cotton bush while visiting this cooperative. e most informative place for learning about cotton was at the San Juan la Laguna cooperative. It has a museum that shows all the plants, plus the best book you could possibly want on the subject; you can buy this book on natural plant-based color dyes from the Maya womens cooperative in this village. You can reach this village most easily by boat from Panajachel, or you can drive up and down volcanic slopes for hours (as we did). If you choose to drive, we recommend 4WD and a high axle (big tires). Twenty years ago much of the Guatemalan south coast was an endless commercial cotton plantation. e quantity of insecticide used to raise this modern Guatemalan cotton is mind-boggling. e pesticide amount was so high that the U.S. was not allowed to import beef in those decades if the cattle grazed anywhere near a cotton eld. In later years these former cotton plantations were transformed into sugar cane and/ or cattle ranches. ere is not much industrial monoculture of modern white cotton remaining (fortunately for the environment, as cotton requires more nasty chemicals than any other form of agriculture). e modern colorants include even more carci-

44 Your body is in a constant state of renewal. With every breath you take, the stem cells inside your body are renewing and regenerating themselves. ese seemingly miraculous cells have the ability to transform themselves into brand new healthy cells to replace the sick or worn out cells in your muscles, organs, tissues, brain, glands, joints and bonesvirtually any cell in your body. Many scientic studies now indicate that increasing the number of circulating adult stem cells in your body is probably the single most important thing you can do to maintain optimal health. Adult stem cells are released from bone marrow into the bloodstream. en they go searching for tissues and organs in distress. For example, if the heart sends out a cry for help, the traveling stem cells exit the bloodstream, migrate to the heart, multiply and become brand new healthy heart muscle cells to replace the sick or worn out cells. Dr. Byron Sanchez, medical director of the Medi-Center Stem Cell Research Clinic in zone 10 of Guatemala City, is an oncologist and hematologist with 15 years of experience in stem cell research and transplantation. e highly skilled medical team at Medi-Center oers stem cell transplantation therapy to patients with the same degree of success as any other country in the world, from the United States to South Korea, but at a fraction of the price. Dr. Sanchez explains the process: Stem cells are derived from the patients own bone marrow or umbilical cord. Blood, fat and skin are also excellent sources of stem cells. In adults, these cells are rare, isolated at a rate of about 1 in 1,000. Immunological reconstitution is done by isolating the patients natural killer cells, T cytotoxic cells. ey are extracted, isolated, stimulated and processed in the laboratory. e new, multipotent cells are restored to the patient intravenously, in a method much like chelation therapy or dialysis.

56 Franklin Contreras cont. from page 21become a family activity so I like to design open kitchens and eating areas, which become the heart of the house. Contreras believes in maximizing ones surroundingshe uses roofs as places to entertain friends while enjoying the mountains and volcanoes of Antigua, and internationally, glass walls to provide a contemporary feel while showing o beautiful views in Mexico City. However, working in a World Heritage site such as Antigua, does come with a few diculties, and failure to abide by the rules can have costly consequences. CONSEJO, an institution established in 1969 to preserve the citys heritage, imposes strict limitations on construction within the historic center. For example, there are height limitations, second oors are forbidden and restoration projects are closely monitored. Its complicated working in the center, but if we didnt have these rules we would have lost the city years ago, states Contreras. He admits he used to prefer the freedom of working outside the historic center, but now enjoys the challenge of restoring buildings inside it. In the past, he has designed houses and hotels, many of them in Antigua, but he now wants to do something to benet the whole community. We have a special treasure in our country as people still know how to work with their hands, states Contreras. He hopes that an upcoming project will help artisans to promote their crafts and goods around Antigua. Architecture by Franklin Contreras

60 Ever since he was a child and had to use a booster seat to reach the marimba, Jorge Herrera has had a passion for music. Growing up on a coee plantation in Huehuetenango, he was inspired by the Mexican-inuenced folk music that was popular in his village and soon started practicing both the marimba and the guitar. At the age of 18 after being invited to play guitar on Guatemalan TV, he learned from some friends how to play the accordion. However, it wasnt until 40 years later that he was able to adopt the instrument as a member of his family and devote himself entirely to learning it. e accordions dicult to master, but I took the decision to study and play it in Xela (Quetzaltenango) and, after eight years, I conquered it, says Herrera. After performing with the accordion at cultural events throughout the country, Herrera later traveled to Europe, where he spent three months playing it in restaurants across Germany and Italy. e musician admits that the boxshaped apparatus, which is usually associated with European music, isnt an obvious instrument to play in Latin America, but he insists its versatility makes it well-suited to Guatemalan compositions. Known as a one-man band, the accordion is the perfect instrument for those who enjoy playing alone. Its sucient for a whole concert and you dont need accompaniment due to its many registers and dierent sounds, which are produced by directing the bellows that support the keyboard in a variety of directions. I play French, German, Italian and Guatemalan music on it and get my inspiration from the public, states Herrera, who says he often examines the ...continued page 62Musician Prole by Anna-Claire BevanJorge HerreraAccordionist at large

Although he enjoys the security and climate of Antigua, Herrera still travels about the country with his accordion and appears at Xetulul, Retalhuleu each year to commemorate Oktoberfest. Future plans for the musician include recording his own music and learning how to play the violin so he can teach the instrument to his granddaughters. rough perseverance, dedication and enthusiasm you can achieve anything, professes Herrera.

One of his favorite arrangements that he has adapted for the accordion is Noche de Luna Entre Ruinas, a Guatemalan piece originally written for the marimba by the Chapn composer Mariano Valverde: It was inspired by the earthquakes of 1917 and 1918 and is full of nostalgia and emotions, says Herrera. Singing in Portuguese, Italian and Spanish, the accordionist now resides in La Antigua Guatemala, where he gives music lessons and plays at a number of restaurants.

66 Baskets are important utilitarian, decorative and potential income items found around the world, including Guatemala, where many locations are known for specic basket styles. Among them is the community of Chajul, located in the Ixil Triangle, a region in the department of Quich that encompasses the municipalities of Santa Mara Nebaj, San Juan Cotzal and San Gaspar Chajul. Distinct traditional dress and accessories, such as locally made hats and net bags, are worn by many of the Ixil-speaking residents. As elsewhere in the country, markets and festivals provide an opportunity to showcase and sell these specialized items. Pilgrims from all over the western and northern Highlands, some walking for several days, arrive in time for the second Friday of Lentthis year on March 2to pay tribute to the Christ of Golgotha, housed in the large colonial Catholic church. After Esquipulas, this is considered the most important religious pilgrimage site in Guatemala. During these and other special events, visitors often spend time in a maze of nearby market stalls, looking for things to commemorate their trip. For example, in Esquipulas it is common to buy adorned hats or long colorful strings to decorate cars and buses. ese highly visible items give notice to others that the pilgrimage was a success.

While the Dance of the Baskets has not yet been re-introduced, a week prior to any celebration, basket materials drying on rooftops and basket-weavers can be seen around town. But before this idyllic scene develops, there is much work to do. is includes locating, harvesting and preparing the materials. A long trek to the cloud forest where they grow wild is required because the necessary plant, bark and vines are not cultivated nearby. Often a few men will go together and spend several days harvesting and processing their materials before returning home to weave the actual basket. Several varieties of warp materials (tochuk, xinak or pin in Ixil) can be used, and when a basket is begun, six, eight or 10 warp strands are arranged in a way that radiates outward from the middle, locally referred to as reejo del sol (reection of the sun). An additional single warp is inserted to create an odd number, and a single active strand weaves in and out of the warps with a basketry method called English randing. For the rst two or three rows, a strong, exible vine (otxotx or jul in Ixil) is woven to hold the warps into place, and then the same technique continues for the remainder of the basket with a thin variety of bamboo (xicap in Ixil), until the end. Lastly a at strip of cambium or inner bark (ubetx or tzxuk in Ixil) is soaked in ...continued page 84memento is the unique basket, marketed by men and women in the central park and on the church steps. When I asked a basket weaver about Chajuls basket history he replied: A long time ago a few local Ixil were in the forest harvesting food and upon returning to their camp midday to prepare their meal, they discovered that it had already been cooked. After this happened three times, the culprits, some visiting Lacadons, revealed themselves and then taught the Ixil the secrets of basket-making. is singular item became so important to Chajul that the Dance of the Baskets was performed once a year until at least the 1960s, with the principal dancers wearing locally made baskets as their ceremonial headgear. e entire tradition ceased in the 1980s when it became too dangerous to travel during the civil war. Since the signing of the Peace Accords in 1996, basketryThese round baskets are not only beautiful objects, but important containers for historical knowledge of a traditional art form.

74 Calendars reect how cultures and societies view the organization of time and space over the centuries. Many calendars have emerged and many have disappeared or been modied: the Julian calendar, the Republican calendar, the Gregorian calendar and the Mayan calendar to name a few. Each one involved astronomical calculations and incorporate harvests and religious or spiritual estas. I remember in the late 1970s, we all studied how it would be the End of the World for the Maya in 2012; we thought it was pretty neat as to how it tied into other doomsday calculations of other cultures. With very little bibliography by Maya writers at the time (in fact none in English), we continued to believe that indeed the worldat least in Mesoamericawould end in 2012. I have recently referred to this as a California spin. Watching a recent TV program on the subject, I noted that the experts were all from California. I wondered why a Maya expert was not a participant! Talking to the experts, we nd it is the end of a Mayan calendar cycle and a rebirth of the Mayan culture for the new cycle. Some great references include: e Order of Days: the Maya World and the Truth about 2012 by David Stuart (Schele Professor of Mesoamerican Art and Writing, University of Texas/Austin), 2012: Science & Prophecy of the Ancient Maya by Mark van Stone, Ph.D., and Ri Rejqalem Kisamaj Ri Ajk Exelom Chuqa Ri Ajqija by Calixta Gabriel (Maya spiritual guide/esis Universidad Rafael Landvar), which are all outstanding. Also, refer to the Dresden Codex. e Mayan Long Count calendar started at 13.0.0.0.0. (not ) in 3113 B.C. and comes to a complete cycle at the winter solstice this year. is marks a new cycle. ere are two calendars that work together. e solar year (365 days), known as haab, has 18 months (20 days each) and a ve-day period before the next year. A day (qij), a 20day month (winq), a year (tun), a 20-year cycle (katun) a 52-year cycle (tzolkin) and so forth up to the end of a baq tun (Kakchikel spelling). e sacred calendar, known as tzolkin, has 13 months (20 days each), for a 260-day count. Each day has a nawal, look yours up in the calendar. e new baq tun begins on the winter solstice 2012time for another esta but this one will be BIG!

John E. Southard Question: I have an 8-year-old Dachshund named Lilly, who has had several episodes of a lower-back pain. A cortisone shot and heat relieved the prob lem. About three months ago I could tell that she was experiencing pain in her neck. This time her body did not respond to the same cortisone treat ment. The veterinarian explained that she probably had a pinched nerve in the vertebrae of her neck and would probably require surgery. I could not afford the surgery, so I brought her home and over the course of several weeks, she gradually got better, although she is not as active as before. What are the chances that this problem will recur? Answer: Unfortunately, this type of disorder can be acute. Medications are generally very eective but do not eliminate the cause of the problem. The disc material between each of the vertebra that makes up the backbone normally acts as a cushion. Under pressure or through degeneration with age, the disc material can move up into the spinal cord or out against the nerve roots that come o the spinal cord and cause a great deal of pain and weakness. Medication can reduce the swelling at the point of injury and reduce the pain. However, in severe cases, medication has no eect and cannot stop the damage to the cord that the disc material can cause. In these cases, surgery is performed to remove the disc material and/or open up the top of the vertebrae to allow the spinal cord room to expand if necessary. Because nerve tissue is so delicate and susceptible to injury, there is no guarantee of success or complete recovery with surgery, although most dogs improve signicantly. Prevention would include the use of a harness instead of a collar; not allowing her to jump on or o furniture; not playing pull games with her toys, and keeping her weight under control. You should discuss her situation with the surgeon and decide at what point he thinks that surgery would be ab solutely necessary. Maintenance medication relieve spasms and keep her comfortable. Also you should be aware that any signs of weakness or pain, which indicate deterioration of her condition. Many dogs do well without surgery if some precautions are tak en, but those that do need surgery are often helped and improve dramatically. Each case is individual in its response to treatment.

80 This rich red color cries out for at tention, from ALTO signs to gar den blossoms to a ag announc ing fresh meat at the village butcher. No wonder that cardinal signs are used by the big cola companies, a big phone service and most market chains. Your assignment this month, however, is to spot more subtle touches of cardinal-red among the bright blues and greens and browns and whites of Guatemalan towns and farms. Finding cardinal in the fruit and veg etable markets is easy: apples from the Highlands, red pepper and chili in baskets, fat radishes in neat pyramids. Cardinal coee berries are mostly picked by now, but enough still dot the ncas to catch the eye of passers-by. Some huipil weavings, such as the womans blouses of Patzn, are dazzling cardinal red; other brocades from San Antonio Aguas Calientes weavers have more subtle touches of cardinal. Its in gardens and along roadsides that sprinkles of cardinal stand out. Actual car dinals utter by year-around in the Petn jungles, and macaws preening in their car dinal feathers munch seeds in some hotelgarden cages. Cardinal poppies dot the highway from Mexico to Salvador, spring ing up in dirt patches from recent slides. Tanagers and woodpeckers ash their car dinal feathers as they take their morning splash in our fountain, while the neighbors poinsettias dont realize that the holidays are over and continue their cardinal show against the white walls. But the best displays of cardinal in Feb ruary come in crayon Valentine drawings from a child, and in a bouquet of longstemmed red roses from a lover.

94 In the Newberry Award-winning book (and Disney movie) Holes, the hero Stanley Yelnats and his friend Zero survive in a barren desert after discovering a hidden lake tucked on top of a mountain. ough Guatemalas Western Highlands are far from barren, scaling the breathtaking Laguna Chicabal makes you wonder if the author of Holes drew any inspiration from this local gem. A microbus ride away from Quetzaltenango, the lagoon rests in the collapsed top of a dormant volcano. Not terribly large perhaps a mile all aroundthe lagoon impresses visitors at once not only with its sheer beauty, but also with how isolated it is. More northern Minnesota than Lake Atitln, this is the perfect day trip if youre staying in the area and one of the few destinations that is probably more popular with locals than tourists. e hike to Chicabals concave peak is a little over a mile from the base. e cloud forest around you and the rolling mountains beyond mean you will be more than happy to stop, and the view provides a better excuse than the elevation. e vista also makes the journey seem like every other Highlands hikeuntil glimpses of blue through the trees hint at something youve never quite seen before. Part of the lagunas appeal is its mystical (and mythical) history, a doorway to another world for many Mayas. ...cont. on following pageTRAVE L text/photos by Blake NelsonHiking Laguna ChicabalView of the lagoon from the top of the ridge Lagoon-side altar, recently used

Follow the signs until you reach a dirt parking lot with drivers oering to take you to the parks ocial entrance. You dont have to accept, but the hike will take you 90-plus minutes of uphill gasping, sucking in the dirt from locals who opted for the pickup. We chose the ride.
