Weve also got some great stories, lots of information and plenty of events and things to do. Oh yeah, its also our 20th anniversary. Our heartfelt thanks go to all of our ad vertisers who have been with us for these oh-so-many years. We feel that it has been a mutually benecial relationship and we will continue to do all we can to get the word out about them. Since 1992 we have been extremely fortu nate in the high caliber and quantity of writ ers that have penned their stories, insights and adventures throughout our pages. Some of our writers have moved on, some have passed on, some remain, and some are as yet undiscoveredand to all of them up to now we express our gratitude and fondness. Without the exceptional individuals who make up the Revue Team, this maga zine wouldnt even exist, and hopefully a large round of enthusiastic applause and a published anks, Team! should work in lieu of any raises or bonuses. Even after 20 years, we are still thrilled every time someone says to us, Oh, I really enjoyed that interview this month, or I use the Revue to help plan out my month, or I read it online when Im out of the country. It is what we work towards and we take the responsibility very seriously. We truly enjoy sharing through the maga zine all the good things, beautiful places and wonderful people of Guatemala. Have a great March.

18 Long before Galileo tracked heavenly bodies in the 17th Century, the Maya watched the skies and developed a construction for time. What did they really say about 2012? Absolutely nothing, says Dr. David Stuart, archeologist and Schele Professor of Mesoamerican Art and Writing at the University of Texas-Austin. He calls the current frenzy that the world will end or be radically changed on December 21 complete nonsense and suggests that New Age writers and Hollywood producers have melded traditions into one pan-Meso-american hodgepodge, taking the specicity of the 2012 date from the Maya and grafting it onto the Aztec imagery of world destruction. Stuart began exploring Maya ruins at the age of eight. He lived in a thatch house in Coba, Mexico with his parents while they studied and mapped ancient Maya sites in the jungle for National Geographic. Remembering the excitement around discovery of a broken stone slab, he wrote, I was forever hooked on Maya archeology. e truth is, no Maya textancient, colonial or modernever predicted the end of time or the end of the world. A page from the Dresden CodexPREDICTIONS by Joy HoustonDr. David Stuart, archeologist and Schele Professor of Mesoamerican Art and Writing at the University of Texas-Austin, speaks out on the subject. ...continued page 66

20 I used to think you needed water, waves and a wetsuit to surf. I was wrong. When I rst arrived in Nicaragua, Id never heard of volcano boarding and thought it would be enough of a feat to scale a volcano, let alone hurtle down one on a wooden plank. Created by an Australian just over ve years ago, volcano boarding (or surng) is one of Central Americas newest extreme sports and promises an exhilarating ride to all who are brave enough to try it. My Everest was to be Cerro Negro (Black Hill) in western Nicaragua. Born in 1850, its the regions youngest volcano and one of its most activehaving last erupted in 1999, causing ash damage to the colonial city of Len, 25 kilometers away. Due to its youth and constant volcanic activity, it is impossible for vegetation to grow, which means, coupled with the 41-degree gradient, its perfect terrain for volcano boarding. Having arrived at its base, there was little opportunity to rebu the rather ominous looking 2,300-foot volcano. Suddenly, I was exchanging my belongings for a jumpsuit and gogglesthe likes of which I hadnt seen since my high school days. is really was to be a science experiment: a test of gravity vs. stupidity. Complete with a somewhat splinterylooking wooden sleigh, I trekked up to the top of the black mountain, clambering over rocks and solidied lava for 45 minutes until I reached the summit. If you look at any map of Nicaragua you will see that volcanoes litter the landscape, forming an impressive chain that runs like Elbows In, Knees Together, Back Straight EXTREME SPORTS text/photos by Anna-Claire BevanVolcano Boarding in Nicaragua

Having scaled the volcano, I changed into what appeared to be the uniform of an inmate at Guantanamo Bay and took to my board, attempting to mimic the sitting position Id just been shownelbows in, knees together, back straight. Prepare to bruise, I thought, as I began plotting my escape route down the 500-meter slope ... to the left of that pile of sand, to the right of that one. No sooner had I ung my wooden slat down on the peak and climbed aboard, I felt someone push me. I was away, soaring down Cerro Negro at breakneck speedigniting a mist of black sand as I went. It was amazing, it was terrifying, it was crash! Gritty, volcanic ash ew up my nose. It was in my ears and somehow even down my jumpsuit. In my rookie attempt to slow down I unbalanced my board and projected myself into the air and then, painfully, back down, colliding with the rocks. It hurt, but I was still smiling. I quickly remounted and came to the conclusion that since my previous braking maneuver had failed me, I should avoid trying to reduce my speed. In essence, I should stop trying to stop. So I pushed o from the ground beneath meelbows in, knees together, back straightand watched a haze of black sand and green scenery merge together. My heart was beating out of my chest as a distorted Nicaragua ew past me. I wanted to brake, but I didnt want to fall, so I just kept going at an exhilarating speed, praying that I didnt topple again. e noise was deafening. I let out a yelp that turned into a wail and clung to the ...continued page 98 Ascending Descending

34 Determined to nd out what was really going on, Yates originally came to Guatemala in the 1980s to make a documentary about a hidden war. irty years later, material from her lm, which captures some of the only footage of Guatemalas 36-year civil war, is being used in an international genocide case against one of its interviewees, military dictator Gen. Efrain Ros Montt. Part political thriller, part memoir, Granito de arena is the sequel to Yates internationally renowned When the Mountains Tremble. Featuring Yates trawling through boxes of 16mm lm searching for forensic evidence for lawyers to use against Ros Montt and following Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Mench to Spain as she initiates a court case against the war criminals, Granito is a testament to never giving up. For me, Granito is a second chance to help right a terrible wrong, says Yates. I was terried [lming the rst documentary]. But I compartmentalized my fear in order to make When the Mountains Tremble. In Granito, since Im the storyteller, there are shots of me in 1982, and I look pretty scared. From the Highlands and cemeteries of Guatemala, to the inner chambers of the Spanish National Court, and to lm studios in New York, Granito is a journey of brutality, impunity and hope. It introduces us to undaunted Guatemalans who never gave up on their quest to uncover the truth about their buried pastdespite their own governments attempts to conceal it. Alongside fearless lawyers, forensic anthropologists and a formidable group of witnesses, the team uncovers an incriminating interview with dictator Ros Montt and a hidden archive from Guatemalas National Police, which they hope will bring justice for the families of the 200,000 people who were killed at the hands of the government during the Guatemalan civil war. We now know that hidden in that war was a genocide the Guatemalan military dictators committed against the Maya people. e anger I feel towards those generals is almost unbearable. Granito is a concept I rst learned in the Guatemalan Highlands and has carried with me throughout my lmmaking life. It reects the communal values that guide Maya communities and means that each of us can make a small contribution to positive social change, and together we can make great changes in favor of equality and human rights, says Yates.Granito de arenaEver since I lmed these generals in 1982, Ive wanted to see them pay for their crimes, says lmmaker Pamela Yates.F ILM PR EMIE R by Anna-Claire Bevan

36 Standing in front of the Lacandn Maya exhibit at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, author Mary Jo McConahay surprised herself by saying out loud, I must go there. It was 1973, Mary Jo was escaping California university life, and the exhibit pictured an exotic world of men in white tunics pounded from bark, holding bows and arrows, and women with wild bird feathers braided into their hair. From that moment, the author takes the reader on her 30-year journey into the Petn of Guatemala, where she searched for, and then came to intimately know, the modernday descendants of the Maya. Her initial day and night journey reached San Cristbal de las Casas, where the indigenous stepped o the sidewalk to let her pass. ere, she searched for someone who knew where the Lacandn lived and how to reach them, and nally, ill, she stumbled into their village. ey nursed her back to health, allowed her a visit, and then guided her back to her modern life. Perhaps that rst visit is an allegory of the authors remarkable, intermittent, 30-year journey through Petn. rough her return visits, the author began to see in nature what the Maya saw. Looking from a boat into its wake, she saw a turtle dive deeper into the water, stubby limbs sticking out from the four corners of its shell. In that moment, the Maya image of the turtle as a glyph for the sacred became clear: Its round back the Earth, its limbs the four directions that, with the center, make BOOK ALE RT by Dianne CaronoMaya RoadsOne Womans Journey Among the People of the Rainforest Cover photo Nancy McGirr Map & chapter illustrations, Ren Ozaeta Chicago Review Press ISBN 978 1 56976 548 7Mark your Calendar: March 14, 4pm BOOK PRESENTATION, ve-star reviews, best seller Maya Roads: One Womans Journey Among the People of the Rainforest by (Antiguas own) Mary Jo McConahay.

Finally, as the sympathetic war correspondent, the author recounts horric tales of modern-day violence during the Guatemalan civil war, told by the survivors themselves. Stories of villages destroyed, sometimes by hooded residents, nodding yes or no as men and boys are paraded past them; sometimes by men dressed as guerrillas, who wore army-issued boots. roughout this remarkable journey, the reader marvels not only at the stories of the Petn, but also at the courage and insight of Mary Jo McConahay as she dares to delve into and share a hidden world. It is a story not to be missed. Every once in a while I stumble across a book that is so beautifully written and infused with so much intelligence and heart that it leaves an indelible mark on me. Mary Jo McConahays Maya Roads is such a book. In its hungry passion and wide-eyed wonder, its an extraordinary literary journey and a moving testament to a region and a life. Don George, National Geographic Traveler, Book of the Month August 2011 In this extraordinary travel memoir, McConahay journeys through beauty, history, disappearing cultures, and revolution Her courage, keen observation, and open heart make her an unparalleled guide to this gorgeous, mysterious, sacred, and sometimes terrifying corner of the planet.

In attendance were dozens of Maya shaman dressed in ceremonial attire soberly attending to their prayer oerings of copal incense, sacred incantations and song, and the sacrice of doves. e next major event in the sacred calendar is the Uaxactn Equinox (the week of March 22).

58 As many people have discovered, yoga is good for the mind, body and soul. It turns out that this year it will also be good for education! On March 10 at 4:30 p.m. YogAntigua will host its third Sun Salutations event at El Cerro de La Cruz. Similar to a walkathon, participants commit to practicing up to 108 sun salutations and seek contributions in the form of pledges. All proceeds benet a local non-governmental organization, in this case, CasaSito Association, which provides educational opportunities for underprivileged children in Guatemala. A sun salute is a dynamic sequence of 12 postures performed as a continuous ow. Expert yoga teachers will guide the participants through the sun salutation sequences, so prior yoga experience is not necessary. e number 108 has long been considered a sacred number in many cultures. In the Vedic culture, 108 symbolizes the wholeness of existence. According to yogic tradition, there are 108 sacred places of the body. Participating at this event promises to be a very rewarding experience. As you go through this meditative practice giving thanks to the sun for its light, warmth and sustenance, you can also feel great satisfaction knowing that you are supporting an important local cause. As we all know, children living in poverty often do not have the resources to obtain an education. CasaSito works to increase educational opportunities for underprivileged children who otherwise may not have an opportunity for a quality education and a chance to improve their lives. In 2012, CasaSitos scholarship program will support 181 students at all scholastic levels. Additionally, CasaSito continues to support local educational centers in the Sacatepquez area by funding teaching and administration costs and nutrition programs for local educational centers. By participating in this event and securing contributions, you will be oering hope and opportunity to children who dream of having a better life. Please join us in working toward our goal of raising $5,000, which would help positively impact the hope, opportunities and dreams of many children. More information on CasaSito is available at www.casasito.org. To participate in the event, contact Nancy Payne at yoga@yogantigua. com or Maritza Ortz at maritza@casasito.org. Or if 108 sun salutations sounds too daunting and youd prefer to sponsor one of CasaSitos scholars who will be participating alongside the yoga regulars, you can email Maritza or call her at 7832-0829.108 Sun Salutations for EducationDateBook Highlight by Maritza Ortz

He speaks of octillions and septillions of years and thats not all. e Maya conception of time will end eons after our solar system has burnt itself out and the universe is no more. e book is based on what ancient Maya records had to say about time and the workings of the cosmos and their place within this complex world view. It is not to critique theories about Maya astronomy or 2012. Where did these ancient Maya records come from? An 800-year old Maya book, now called the Dresden Codex, turned up in Germany. How it got there remains a mystery, but it sat virtually unnoticed until 1880, when a fascinated librarian picked it up and became obsessed with guring it out. About 10 years later he did; he cracked the bar-anddot code of noting time, opening the doors to study and understanding of other Maya hieroglyphics. e irony, Stuart laments, is that just when decades of hard work in the eld and libraries is paying o, much of the hubbub about 2012 is by gurus and spiritualists who wouldnt know a Maya glyph if one hit them on the nose. Yet, isnt just another period endingbut a very special date indeed. The Maya called it a fold in time, the end of one era, the beginning of another.What A bout 2012? cont. from page 16

68 Beyond the Glyphs: Ancient Maya Inscriptions as Literature, the rst international conference devoted to the topic of ancient Maya literature, will be held March 12-14 at Casa Herrera, 4a av. norte at 3a calle, La Antigua, Guatemala. Closing symposium on March 15 will be at Casa Santo Domingo. The annual Maya Meetings for scholars as well as non-professionals have been held since 1977, sponsored by the University of Texas-Austin Department of Art and Art History. Dr. David Stuart was instrumental in securing Casa Herrera as an extension of The Mesoamerica Center, of which he is director. The 17th-Century house was authentically restored and this academic year welcomed 15 UT students for research and study in La Antigua. For information about the meetings, call 7832-0760. Interior courtyard of restored Casa Herrerahad a hard time accepting the power of the calendar in the daily lives of the people, banning it as witchcraft and superstition. But the Maya continued to use their calendar for hundreds of years after Spanish evangelization, albeit secretly, to give meaning to their lives, politics and rituals. Calendars are but a tool for organizing time and experience, based on observed astronomy and alternating periods of light and dark. ey have undergone changes over the centuries, ever trying to get it exactly right, but are still inaccurate and messy, as Stuart calls it. ere are still months with 30 days and some with 31, and then theres that extra day in February every four years. In truth it would be dicult to separate linear and cyclical systems of time. A year progresses from January to Decemberlinnew under the sun. at said, it could be argued that the cyclical perspective could result in self-fullling prophecy, actions determined by a perceived future. Perhaps an example of the cyclical system is ancient Jewish tradition. Land was worked for periods of six years, then allowed to rest the seventh. e Jubilee year occurred every seven periods, the 50th year. At that time all property was returned to its original owner; debts were canceled; slaves were freed. e idea was that everything belonged to God, who loaned it to His people. In recognition and honor of this, all must be returned periodically. e cyclical view may have been particularly tting for an agricultural population. e concept of time as linear may be preferred in modern thought as a notion of progress.

Ignore doomsday theories. Celebrations there will be. Big ones. For the Maya, December 21, 2012 will indeed mark a fold in time, not an end but rather the rst of many future repetitions.

Stuart explains, A key dierence between linear and cyclical times comes down to whether one considers the progress of time to be a simple one-way street or capable of accommodating more complex notions of multiple beginnings. Stuart emphasizes that, as the Maya become less mysterious, the reality of their accomplishments is more impressive than what, if anything, they had to say about the future. ey deserve better than that, he writes in his book. ere is only one specic reference, carved in stone in Tortuguero, Mexico, that marks the end of a period that

74 by Elizabeth Bell /ASK ELIZABETH Lent began this year on Feb. 22 with Ash Wednesday, and March and April bring some of the largest processions in the world up through Easter Sunday on April 8. Antiguas celebrations used to be considered second only to Seville, Spain, but during recent years, these celebrations have been considered by many the largest in the world. Introduced by the Spanish conquerors with the rst procession for Corpus Christi in 1524, processions for Lent were rst sponsored by city authorities and various guilds. Inspired by traditions from Seville, they evolved their own characteristics over the centuries. One major change is certainly the size of the oats (andas) carried by the members of the religious brotherhoods/ sisterhoods (hermandades) throughout the streets of Antigua and surrounding areas. e largest oat in Antigua today is carried on the shoulders of 100 men. Carriers referred to as cucurruchos and cargadoras come in from all over the country for the processions for the Fifth Sunday, Palm Sunday, Maundy ursday and Good Friday, which each have more than 6,000 carriers. e robes have changed since the 1800s as have the name of the hermandades, which were previously called cofradas. Childrens processions have also increased over the past few years. e spirit of Lent and Holy Week remain much the sameif not even more embedded in Antiguas culture. My favorite part of this season is carpet making. Residents make exquisite carpets out of dyed sawdust, pine needles, owers and vegetables. If the procession is going to come by your house, your friends and family invite themselves over to make the carpet. While designs emerge out of the materials and many are spontaneous, there is no competition in carpet making. All carpets are of equal importance and not all carpet makers are Catholic. Completed moments before the procession walks over it, they are ephemeral works of art that last through peoples wonderful memories and what must be millions of photographs taken each year. Most of the sculptures have been in processions since they were carved here in 1650. Certainly the number of visitors has also increased with the elaborateness of the activities. Here are a few tips for visitors to enjoy this very special ...continued page 79How have Lent and Holy Week changed in Antigua since the rst celebrations?

We took her to the vet, who cleaned her ear and sent us home with a lotion to apply daily. at helped for a while, but now it has returned worse than ever. Is her infection contagious to us? Answer: Your dog needs to be rechecked by the veterinarian, who will probably sedate her to be able to completely clean the ear with an antibacterial solution and remove all debris. en the ear can be examined thoroughly for signs of ulcer ations and to see if the eardrum is intact. It may also be necessary to check the material from the ears for signs of fun gus or mites. Oral antibiotics may also be needed. Your veterinarian should show you the proper way to clean the ears at home. Weekly checkups may be needed to follow the progress of your treatment and allow for any necessary changes in medication. Chronic ear infections can become very serious and, if left unchecked, could re quire surgery in order to reconstruct a functional ear.

82 by Sri Ram Kaa & Kira Raa2012 Spirit Arriving at the dock of TOSA LL, on the shores of Lake Atitln, our guests, a doctor and his wife, explained that they have dedicated their lives to healing and are allopathic physicians. ey rst arrived in Guatemala about 10 years ago and donate time at the local hospital to assist the indigenous. e couple have oered medical services worldwide for years. He explained that he was drafted as a doctor into the Vietnam War and it forever shifted his life. ey were drafting as many doctors as they could, and after the war my wife and I stayed on in Asia working in ailand and then getting permission to go back into Vietnam and assist as many as we could. He continued: As a urologist I see quite a bit of prostate cancer. When I return to the U.S. and work with patients there, often times they are able to get surgery and have longterm treatment plans that assist them to deal with the disease. While a surgery that costs $25,000 in the U.S. may only cost $3,000 here, it is still totally out of the question for the Maya men I am working with. After pausing for a moment, he added, What has been amazing for me to witness is that in the U.S., men have a much more dicult time with the symptoms and with the management of their disease. Yet here the men are quite dierent. What I have noticed is that when surgery or long-term treatments are oered to them, they simply smile and tell me: My family cannot aord either the treatment or the surgery. I would not ever oer them the nancial burden of helping me, so I will help them and live with this. is is not who I am, it is simply something that is calling my attention. What I have noticed is that while I only see them once a year, for a follow up, these men are living with a disease in a way that is unheard of elsewhere. Unable to aord medicine or surgery they are surrounded by the love of their families and their commitment to not let the disease aect them. ey truly see this as a separate issueit is not them. ey are good spirited, demonstrate signicantly less symptoms, and yet by the book have all the evidence of advanced disease. It is actually quite miraculous to witness. We certainly had much more to share during their visitonce again through their direct experience, we witness the power of divine love in action.

88 David and Barbara Ramey were wrong about one thing. When the dramatists and retired lobster trappers began snowbirding to Panajachel years ago, they doubted that the Atitln Basin could support a theater company, much less supply the talent. at was before they discovered the pent-up comic acumen of Jennifer Martin and ilda Zorn. Jennifer, from the U.S., and ilda, from Germany, confer drawing power on the Panajachel eatre Company (PTC) as it lights its fth candle. Barbara directs them in plays, many her own, with David as producer, set director and the guy who whispers forgotten lines from behind the curtain. Davids oddest role was in 2011 as husband to Bill Mumford, PTCs leading man, in Carol Burnetts famous skit, Wrong Number. Jennifer and ilda are versatile performing geniuses, Barbara says of her prodigies. ey act, they sing and dance, and they are wickedly funny and spontaneous. eir comic timing is awless. Jennifer Martin, a masseuse, was the wacky, whiskey-chugging dental assistant in PTCs 2009 skit, Dr. Drill. For that performance, she invented Texpat, an English dialect that blended Texan and Panajachel expat. She was also unforgettable as Katie Freezie in the 2011 skit e Ice Storm, a spoof of weather reporting. Katie, who does not know a meteor shower from a baby shower, lands a job by narrating the progress of a storm as if it were a horse race. Martin and Panajachel ...continued page 92DateBook Highlight by Dwight Wayne Coop photo: Santiago MendezBird-brains to Watch Birds in VaudevilleMartin and Zorn augur larks and laughs for Panajachel theater season

92 L AKE ATIT L N musician Chris Jarnach were side splitters last year in the erudite British skit Dinner for One. ilda Zorn, an environmental activist, made her biggest mark with PTC as Flossy Dumpit in Barb Rameys 2010 play, e Red Suitcase. In it, the hypochondriac Mrs. Dumpit careens into hysteria when her mashed red-pepper seeds and organic Preparation H disappear just when she and her skinint husband, third-rate road-show thesbian, move into her father-in-laws nursing home room to save money. Flossy brought audience participation to new heights by leaving the stage while singing Wunderbar. ilda invaded the audience, Barbara recalls. She mussed hair, planted kisses, Panajachel T heater cont. from page 88sat on laps. Just seeing her antics with the audience is by itself worth the price of admission. Martin and Zorn are featured this month in PTCs vaudeville, which will include the Ramey skit, e Birdwatchers. As always, says David Ramey, we aim to outdo last years performance. is years skit-and-song array will be hard to beat; the rehearsals alone are a gas. Jennifer and ilda are crowd wow-ers. I wonder how theyll top this for next year. One thing remains unchanged: the venue at Panajachels La Galera. Showtimes: March 30-31, 7pm; April 1, 4pm.

94 A hidden gem of the Western Highlands, the Refugio del Quetzal (Quetzal Refuge) is an 8,000-square-kilometer sea of green thats one of the few remaining habitats for Guatemalas national symbol. Owned and managed by the nearby municipality of San Rafael Pie de la Cuesta, the sanctuary reaches an elevation of about 2,000 meters (6,560 feet) above sea level. e park, which opened in 2005, includes about 2 kilometers of trails, which mark the way through the mist-shrouded forest of broadleaf trees. Visitors can easily spend four to ve hours meandering through the verdant, humid landscape, where at least a dozen waterfalls splash down from mountain rock. Looking like the setting of an old Tarzan movie, the refuge provides the quetzal with a habitat rich in foodone of its favorites is a mini-avocado (aguacatito), and the forest oor is dotted with fallen fruit scarred by a munching quetzals beak. e dense canopy also helps deter the quetzals natural enemies. And the greenery itself represents an array of colorful plant species, many having medicinal qualities. e most spectacular member of the trogon family of birds, the quetzal is hardly the lone inhabitant. A birders delight, the Quetzal Refuge is home to an avian roster of more than 70 species, including toucans, grosbeaks, highland guans, tanagers, ycatchers and woodpeckers. Animal life large and small also thrives in the forest. ...continued page 96TRAVE L by Matt Bokor photos: ror JansonA birders delight, this Highlands sanctuary is home to an avian roster of more than 70 species Refugio del Quetzal Refugio del Quetzal

Pebbles ew into my mouth, but I kept goingrocketing down Cerro Negro, terried of how I was ever going to stop. e collection of tiny people and boards, once so far away, were getting bigger. eir blurry images were coming into focus and I realized that I had to start braking or else Id go plunging into them. e slope was starting to even out and I could feel my board slowing down a fraction, but not enough to avoid a second collision. I tugged on the ropes once, twice, three times and then decided I would just have to stick my foot out and hope for the best. I tumbled onto the sand and emerged covered in volcanic ash, my eyes and teeth glowing white against the black sand that covered my face. My jumpsuit was torn at the knee, I had a few minor scrapes and bruises, but I was still in one piecegrinning and wishing there was time to go again.
