18 Whether seeking therapeutic relief or a scenic, relaxing getaway, visitors again can enjoy the thermal pools of Las Fuentes Georginas in Guatemalas Western Highlands near Quetzaltenango. Severely damaged by Hurricanes Mitch in 1998 and Stan in 2005, the historic attraction was ruined in 2010 by Tropical Storm Agatha, which destroyed the access road and buried the site in mud and debris. After nine months of substantial rebuilding and new construction, the scenic venue reopened in March 2011. e mist-shrouded spa oers guests an almost-surreal experience as steaming water cascades down a wall of rock, lling the rst, wide pool. From there, the water ows into another pool, and then anothereach a little cooler than the previous. Its common to see parents with kids, young couples and older patrons enjoying the pools. Occasionally, crutches are left beside the bathhouse while their owners immerse themselves in the soothing, mineral-rich water. After workers from nearby Zunil stumbled upon the thermal springs in 1902, the site quickly became a communal bath for neighboring villagers. Improvements were made over the years; in the 1930s, frequent visitors included President Jorge Ubico and his wife Georgina, for whom the destination was named. ...continued page 94 TRAVEL by Matt Bokor photos: or JansonAn Historic Spa in the Highlands Las Fuentes Georginas

18 My rst encounter with stingless bees came at age 19, when I spent 12 months at Tikal, doing archaeological eld work. You see and experience stingless bees in most of the wellpreserved Maya palaces, especially the back rooms of Malers Palace. About 47 years later, I revisited stingless bees at Tikal while studying the biodiversity of Tikal under national park sta biologist Mirtha Cano. A year later it was possible to study more stingless bees in the Ro Dulce area of the Department of Izabal. I was introduced by Kevin Lock to several places where we could study these bees, especially on the property of Richard Bronson. I also became acquainted with Scott Forsythe who, in turn, introduced me to Masaki, a Japanese lady who has stingless bees in the property at her posada in Quirigu. Stingless bees are also doing well at Finca Buenos Aires, Takalik Abaj with Ing. Carlos Guzman, a member of the Asociacin de Reservas Privadas de Guatemala. Our sta members noticed stingless bees building their typical entrance tube right in front of the FLAAR ethnobotany and ethnozoological research center (at 1,500 meters elevation in Guatemala). At the FLAAR facilities we raise butteries, using no cages or anything articial. e secret? Dont use insecticide in your garden. Our entire ecosystem is natural, yet were in the middle of a city. If we had property in ...cont. page 66 Sacred Animals and Exotic Tropical Plants by Dr. Nicholas M. HellmuthStingless Bees of the MayaStingless bees at Ro Dulce, Rick Bronsos Place. ( )

20 Anyone who listens to music radio in Guatemala will no doubt be familiar with the name Soapbox. e talented musician had a No. 1 hit with his rst solo single Time, and his second release, Now Im Gone, looks to be heading in a similar direction. But not everyone may be aware that the man behind the name, Rodrigo Rosales, is a home-grown, Guatemalan star who does everything (down to directing his own music videos) himself. I think that being in a group can sometimes be restrictive, Rosales says. But if youre a one-man band, you dont have to limit yourself. e Guatemalan artist says he has always been inspired by musicians who played multiple instruments and guitarists who challenged the conventional approach to performance. When I was 13 years old I saw a (television) special on Jimi Hendrix and it blew my mind, Rosales says. From that day forward Rosales admits only wanting to perform in a similar style. So, having learned to play the guitar when he was 11, Rosales later taught himself to play the drums and piano before building a recording studio in his room and teaching himself all elements of production. I used to lock myself away and just focus on my music. I didnt go out much; I just practiced in my room and was a bit of a loner but I guess its starting to pay o now, laughs Rosales. Even though the musician has appeared on four albums from other artists in the past year, he professes that the Guatemalan music industry isnt an easy one to crack. You need to have someone in there. I would go to radio ...continued page 32Soapbox aka Rodrigo RosalesOne-Man Band Rodrigo Rosales ( )MUSIC by Anna-Claire Bevan

21 Interested in Mayan culture and want to check out a lesser-known region of Guatemala? inking about visiting the ruins of Copn? You can combine a trip to Copn, Honduras, with a stop in Jocotn, Chiquimula, Guatemala, and learn more about the Maya Chorti. e Chorti are related culturally and linguistically to the lowland Maya of Yucatn and Belize (Chol) rather than the highland Maya of Guatemala (Quiche-Pokam); scholars agree that ancestors of the Chorti built the Copn (Honduras) and Quirigu (Guatemala) structures. Jocotn is situated in the middle of the Chorti homeland, located just o a paved highway between the department capital of Chiquimula and the Honduran border crossing of El Florido. is community hosts a yearly feria honoring Saint Santiago (July 21-25) and a regional folkloric festival (April 26-28). e latter was initiated by Jocotn teachers in 1986 as a way to highlight Chorti culture, and activities include dance, music, procession and a handicraft market, as well as the election of Katu Suchij or Reyna o Flor de Maguey (Queen or Flower of Maguey). e patronal feria also includes a rodeo. ...continued page 34TRADITION by Kathy Rousso photos: Hugo Pea Montes RamirezThis year the folkloric festival is celebrated April 26-28 and the feria is July 21-25 Folklore and Fiestas in Jocotne procession includes a ritual for a good harvest

But I have to get used to it, and now I guess theres no turning back. My greatest challenge has always been myself. I was afraid at the beginning and didnt have much condence so Ive had to overcome that, says Rosales, who originally called himself Soapbox. When I was growing up, people used to dismiss local bands and I thought that if I put my name out there I would get rejected, so I used the pseudonym Soapbox, admits Rosales. Although Rosales has toured with bands and composed songs for other musicians, he is now focusing on his solo career. His selfwritten, rst album Soapbox Vol. 1 is out now in local music stores.

Like most successful Guatemalan performers, Rosales funds his music through another career. He works as a furniture designer during the week and spends his spare time writing songs and trying to get the best sound possible out of his equipment.

58 Pino ( )The clean, crisp, fresh, familiar scent of pine, from long and short needles gathered and bundled to be scattered on shop and caf oors, is an aroma found yeararound in Guatemala businesses and homes. is month more than ever, pine forms a large part of the rich odors of the Lenten season. Before the scores of processions wind through cobbled streets, pine needles are spread to soften the marchers tread. Needles are often a base for the alfombras the intri cate carpets of owers and sawdust, or lov ingly placed in green rectangles as a simple adoration before the passing saints. e delicate scent of carpet needles is overpowered by smoke in the processions. Pine resins are concentrated into hard balls of pom pitch, providing the heavy smudge from incense burners swung vigorously in front of the processions. You will smell it again when you next undress, your cloth ing saturated with the pine incense. And taste pine. ose who head to the hills to gather needles and resins also pick up cones that yield nuts, roasted and munched alone or mixed into salads, stews and other avorful dishes. Want to paint? Artists need scores of shades on the palette to properly paint the trees of Highland forests or pine products in the processions. Green pine needles, golden pine pitch, light brown pine nuts, coee colored pine bark, scores of shades are necessary to picture pine. Pine is the most common tree in the world, were told by arborists, with more than 100 species on six continents. Two varieties are native to Guatemala and Cen tral America, the long-needled Montezuma Pine and the somewhat shorter needles of Honduras Pine, the national tree of our neighboring country. Recent studies sug gest both varieties developed many millen nia ago in the Cuchumatanes mountains of Guatemala, then spread north into Mexico and south to Nicaragua, but we wont let our Honduran friends down by telling them where their national tree originated. Pine scents, pine shades, pine nut taste, the sticky touch of pine pitch, soft needles underfoot, pine easily reaches four out of ve senses. Add sound, the crackle of pine logs in a replace, and pine is a delight for all our senses. Sensuous G uatemala by Ken Veronda

60 The rains will be starting soon and the burning in the elds may make for some viewing dif culties, but there will still be some good stargazing in the region in the next few months. Binoculars can help the viewing but there is no need for a telescope until you get hooked on the stars. In early April the bright evening stars are really the planets Jupiter and Venus, one above the other and fairly low in the western sky just after sunset. Venus is brighter and higher while Jupiter is closer to the horizon and not as brilliant. Imme diately above and to the left of Venus is the star Aldebaran, a red-colored star that is the eye of the bull at the start of the horns of the constellation Taurus. During this month Venus will continue to rise while the rest of the stars and Jupi ter will be closer to the horizon at sunset, so that by the end of April Venus will be higher than Aldebaran and Jupiter gradu ally becomes lost in the horizons haze or surrounding hills at sunset. Meanwhile, in early April the moon will be in the eastern sky at sunset and on the 6th will just be rising as the sun sets: a full moon. e planet Mars will be immediately to the left (north) of the moon on April 3 but will be somewhat washed out by the moons bright reected sunlight. ree of the more interesting celestial objects are in the early evening sky this month: the constellations Orion (the hunt er) and Taurus (the bull) and the asterism (group of stars) called the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters. On April 3 Venus will be right in among the Pleiades. In Japanese the Pleiades are called Subaru, and the star group is part of the Subaru car insignia, reecting the join ing of six dierent companies to form Fuji Heavy Industries after World War II.

It is called the Cruz de Mayo in these parts, and I will always remember the rst time I ever saw it, from the beach at Tulate on the south coast some 45 years ago. Stephen Stills said it all with his song of the same name. It does indeed look like a small cross with a bright star at each end of the upright and the slanted cross bar but with no star in the middle joint. It looks more like a childs kite. A dimmer star on the lower right side completes the bright stars of this amazingly beautiful constellation. is smaller and dimmer side star is shown on the Australian ag but not on New Zealands. Looking straight north in the early evening the asterism called the Big Dipper is easily visible with its distinctive long-handled ladle shape, now upside down pouring out its liquid onto the North Star, which is a faint star and probably not visible in the haze just above the northern horizon. About the author: Phil Jones works in Central America and visits Guatemala to assist in micronance. He combines his work travel with stargazing all over the world and has written columns and guided evening stargazing tours.Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.

( )Mirta Cano has shown me that several species make their nest in the ground, so merely walking around can destroy their habitat. ough these bees are stingless, they will attack if they feel threatened. e only time it happened to me was when my head was in the ight path of their hive (I was concentrating on photographing another hive about one meter below, on the same tree). When stingless bees get irritated, they dive into your head and burrow down through your hair and pester the daylights out of your scalp. ey also buzz around your eyes and ears, but mainly its your scalp that gets the full bore of their wrath. What to do: Get away from their hive, immediately! And never wave your hands or arms to fend them o. e bees in front of my house are accustomed to people walking around them all day. My guess is that these bees are simply used to the presence of people. is hive seems to have learned that we will neither attack them nor even disrupt them. I hope this article raises awareness of stingless bees. We at FLAAR institute would be interested in working on projects if your company or foundation could provide funding. We would especially like to raise awareness throughout Guatemala in providing protection for stingless bees, and not obliterating them with insecticides nor cutting down the trees where some species make their hives. ...continued page 68the countryside, we would raise a veritable zoo. In part, my enjoyment of bees is watching them build their entrance-exit tube and seeing them hover in front of the hive, getting ready to dive down the tube. It makes me think of scimovies with alien spaceships, ghter planes and helicopter-like scout planes hovering around the entrance port to the mother ship. Aside from images of bees and alien worlds, for thousands of years bees were an important economic aspect of Classic Maya civilization. And beekeeping is still important in Maya areas today, though unfortunately modern bees tend to replace indigenous species more and more every year. e more common species of stingless bees are very tiny. You will recognize these little bees in many ower-lled gardens.

Photographing stingless beesWe use a 21 megapixel Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III with a macro lens, either a 100mm macro or a Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5X macro lens. e latter is the best macro lens I have ever found for photographing insects, but you need eternal patience to get the lens close enough to focus. It helps to have a ring ash or macro ash to allow you to freeze the ying bees so they are not too blurred in the photograph. Since bees move rapidly bees are best photographed with HDSLR video, which means a high denition, single lens reex camera (which means a camera where you can change your lenses, so ironically a camera which takes many lenses, not just one single lens). We look forward to obtaining a brand new Canon EOS-1D X which is a pro-level camera but has video capabilities signicantly better than any Canon Rebel or Nikon D-hundred series system. We appreciate John Lorusso, Parrot Digigraphic, www.ParrotColor.com, for providing cameras and lenses for our studies of the ora, fauna and archaeology museums of Guatemala. For information about raising stingless bees as a hobby, you can contact Scott Forsythe (forsythe_scott@hotmail.com). If youd like to see stingless bees in the Ro Dulce area, contact kevinlock2001@yahoo.com. He can take you to visit the bees of Don Emilio (Emilio Mendizbal) in his property the Jardin botnico El Ciricote (about 15-minute drive north from Ro Dulce). If you are a biologist and wish to do research on stingless bees in Petn, contact the Parque Nacional Tikal. Biologist Mirta Cano would be a good starting point. If you are a visitor to Guatemala, most local guides in Petn should be able to nd you stingless bee hives, especially in Tikal. If you are in the Sayaxch area of El Petn, you can ask Julin Mariona of Posada El Caribe if he can nd you stingless bees. You can buy honey from stingless bees at Macaw Mountain a few kilometers from Copn Ruinas, Honduras (info@macawmountain.com).

74 by Elizabeth Bell f/fASK ELIZABETH Who is Santo Hermano Pedro?San Francisco Church in Antigua celebrates the anniversary of Santo Hermano Pedros death (1667) on April 25 with concerts and reworks. An allegorical procession goes throughout the streets of Antigua after the 2 p.m. mass on Sunday, April 29. Hermano Pedro de San Jos Betancur was born on March 21, 1626, in Vilafor on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. After working as a shepherd until his early 20s, he set out for Guatemala, hoping to nd a relative there. First arriving in Havana, Cuba, practically penniless, he earned money to travel to Antigua (then known as Santiago de Guatemala). As he entered Antigua, there was an earthquakewhich may contribute to Antiguans considering a small earthquake to be a welcome today. Enrolling in the Jesuit College of San Borja (Compaa de Jesus) to become a priest, he could not master the material and was not able to graduate. He then became a Franciscan tertiary and took the name Pedro de San Jos. While visiting the sick in hospitals, jails and in their homes, he later founded the rst hospital for the convalescent poor at Belen in Antigua. is included a shelter for the homeless, schools for the poor, a chapel and an inn for priests. He also founded the rst order of the Bethlemites, who have been inuential in Guatemala. Hermano Pedro is well known for establishing the Christmas posada processions and the nativity scenes that have ourished in Guatemala in most Catholic homes. Buried at San Francisco Church, he was beatied on June 22, 1980. When I asked Fray Augusto Ramirez, the Franciscan priest in charge of commissioning the sculpture and robe for the procession we enjoy every year, he said, Hermano Pedro represents humility and helping others. Hermano Pedro became a saint when Pope John Paul II canonized him on July 30, 2002. His works are carried out today through the Obras Sociales del Hermano Pedro at the hospital (6a calle oriente #20) where Franciscans, Guatemalan doctors and nurses work with medical teams from countries including Spain, Canada and the United States. Founded by Fray Guillermo Bonilla in 1984 at the San Pedro Hospital that dates back to 1663, the Obras serves more than 260,000 patients a year. is is a great time to donate to the Obras as it celebrates Santo Hermano Pedro Day. Donations are received at the hospital entrance.

Sometimes it smells musty and the ingredients seem to stick together. He now eats mostly sunower seeds. What do you suggest? Answer: It sounds like he needs a diet overhaul. Remember to carefully monitor his total food consumption during a diet change and introduce very small pieces of a single new food at a time. Gradually reduce the total volume of seed oered as consumption of other foods increases. Most diets for pet birds are commonly decient in Vitamin A. Try oering cups of fresh food twice daily for 15-20 minutes rather than leaving food in the cage all day. All food and water cups should be washed daily and spilled food removed from the cage. Supplemental vitamins/minerals may be recommended by your veterinarian. Also some foods can occasionally help provide sources of activity for your parrot: whole nuts, berries, corn on the cob, coconuts. Approximately 50% of the daily food consumption may be selected from this food group that includes seeds. Because many B vitamins are contained in the seed hulls (which the bird does not eat), other foods from this group can also be provided: whole-grain bread, cooked brown rice, other whole grain products. Vegetables and fruits may account for approximately 45% of the dietary intake. Vegetables with high vitamin A content include broccoli, carrots, pumpkin, collard greens, sweet potato, parsley, endive. Fruits high in vitamin A include papaya, cantaloupe and apricots. Many owners add peanut butter, hard-boiled (or scrambled) eggs, cooked navy beans and kidney beans in limited amounts. e more seeds in the diet, the higher need for supplementary calcium, this is most easily met by mineral supplements in the form of cuttlebone, oyster shell and mineral blocks. A very small amount of hard cheese is ne. Dont tell my mother I work in an advertising agencyshe thinks I play piano in a bordello. Jacques Seguela

82 by Sri Ram Kaa & Kira Raa2012 Spirit Technology: Servant or Master?No matter where you reside, your life is now technology driven. Technology that was intended to liberate us, to provide more free time and productivity, has over the decades, enslaved us. In recent history, the change started 120 years ago with the development of factory production lines and electric appliances. e introduction of automobiles and technologies such as refrigeration has indeed oered support to us all. However, over the decades, technology has become our master and we nd ourselves dependent upon clocks, cell phones, internet and fossil fuel. Our careers and our connection to family and friends are now organized around technology. True mental and physical health requires that we honor our essential nature. We are not machines; we are humans! Natural environments, like those here in Guatemala, revitalize us. Loving interactions with family and friends oer nourishment that is essential to our well-being. Spiritual connections are equally important. Technology tends to feed our brains and often our priorities get distorted; we lose connection with the whole person. Technology becomes the middleman and the lter through which we interact. However, technology can support us, provided that we rst anchor our sense of who we really are. is is a guiding principle of holistic healing, taking into account that we are more than just a brain, a body or emotions. We are a whole person: Body, mind and spirit are all important ingredients in our identity and our health. By adopting a holistic perspective, one can make new choices about priorities. By valuing the whole person, then our decisions about where to invest our time and focus start supporting our health and well-being more eectively. A holistic approach might require that you unplug from your favorite technology for a period of time, just to gain a fresh perspective. For example, how many hours a day do you (or your children) spend watching television? Surng the internet? Has technology disconnected you from your wholeness? Have you adapted your life to technology? While visiting Guatemala you have the perfect opportunity to unplug and reconnect. e moments spent gazing at the profound beauty of nature or simply chatting with a new friend oer perspective and balance. True health invites us to honor all aspects of our being. Holistic health reminds us that the easily dismissible areas (perhaps exercise and spirituality) are important contributors to our health and resilience.

84 Just say the word cancer and all sorts of emotions arise. Maybe we remember the sadness and loss of a co-worker or neighbor. Sometimes the grief strikes closer to home, like my husband, or your sister, or worse, a child. But more and more, we are experiencing another set of emotions regarding cancer treatment today: hope, bravery, triumph, relief and gratitude. In the United States, one in six people is expected to suer some form of cancer in their lifetime. With this sobering statistic regularly in the news, you have to wonder how this disease might aect your lifestyle, family relationships and retirement fund. Determining the most eective course of treatment is not always a clear choice, as it is the result of extensive testing and careful planning by a team of cooperating specialists. Having insurance is no guarantee that you will be protected from major, lifechanging expenses. Patients with insurance are thinking carefully before agreeing to treatment, because out-of-pocket copayments for the drugs alone could easily run $15,000 to $30,000 a year. In Guatemala, we are proud to oer three cancer treatment centers and top-notch oncologists, each with a separate focus, that are able to work in conjunction as a team, together with the surgeons, to impact the patients treatment plan toward a successful recovery. Dr. Luis Linares of Hope Radiotherapy Center has over 25 years of experience performing 25,000 cancer-related procedures. From university studies in England to extensive research and work at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and then as medical director of the New Orleans Cancer Center, he has brought his skills and expertise back home to us in Guatemala. Oering radiotherapy and brachytherapy, Hope International opened in 2010 with state-of-the-art cancer treatment technology which surpasses the quality available in 60% of cancer hospitals in the United States. Radiotherapy involves directing a specialized external beam into the tumor to diminish or destroy it, while brachytherapy is a time-release method of implanting seeds that release radiation in specic daily doses. In both of the non-painful treatments, no surrounding tissue is damaged. At Hope International, eight weeks of radiotherapy treatment, with ve sessions per week, costs around $10,000, compared to $50k-90k in the U.S. Dr. Luis M.

94 For Highlands travel information; www.adrenalinatours.com or your local tour operator.Overnight accommodations are available in one of a dozen or so refurbished cabins. Fuentes is located a half-hour drive from Quetzaltenango above the town of Zunl. Many visitor are not aware that Fuentes Georginas is also the entrance to the municipal forest reserve and for those who want to climb Zunl Volcano. From the restaurant and main pool a path leads up into the forest. An hour or so climb takes you into true cloud forest where you may get a glimpse of the endangered resplendent quetzal. For nature lovers and bird watchers I would recommend a mid-week overnight stay to take full advantage of this beautiful, cloud-enshrouded forest. After your strenuous hike doing some primo bird watching and nature viewing you have the added treat of soaking your weary bones in the medicinal hot sulfur waters. And if you really want to cure what ails youif anything indeed doesdo what the locals do and sip a little of the magic water directly from the rocks where it emerges. ey say that it can cure just about anything! Side note for Fuentes Georginas by or JansonMore details are available at www.lasfuentesgeorginas.com In addition to the pools, Las Fuentes Georginas provides several newly remodeled bungalows for overnight visitors. An excellent restaurant overlooks the pools, oering a varied menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner selections, as well as a fully stocked bar. e pools, restaurant, bungalows, changing rooms, restroomsevery inch of the attraction underwent substantial work, if not complete replacement, since Agathas destruction. A short ride from Quetzaltenango, Las Fuentes Georginas is a well worth a visit. Fuentes G eorginas cont. from page 16 e town of Zunl, just below Fuentes Georginas ( )

Since 1990 theyve become the heart and soul of TBFs eminent conservation program committed to tag and release of billsh from the Atlantic, Pacic and Indian Oceans, while supplying valuable data critical to learning the pelagic species migratory habits. Guatemalas Brad Philipps was TBFs Top Release Captain in the Pacic Ocean in both the blue marlin and sailsh categories. A past multi-time winner, Philipps also won a third major award as the overall release captain for all species in the 22nd annual competition. e TBF Annual Tag and Release Awards, presented during the Miami International Boat Show each February, is the worlds premier big-game shing competition, with thousands of TBF member anglers and captains from 70 countries invited to compete. e 2011 competition ran from Nov. 1, 2010 to Oct. 31, 2011 with tagging data reports and release notication cards generated from the oceans temperate waters, habitat for a majority of the worlds billsh. To qualify active TBF members must have tagged and/or released ve or more of a species.

If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Leslie Graves I appreciate the misunderstanding I have had with Nature over my perennial border. I think it is a ower garden; she thinks it is a meadow lacking grass, and tries to correct the error. Sara Steinsh than ever before, said TBF Science and Policy Director Peter Chaibongsai. We had a total of 5,399 release records and 4,410 tag records for the competition, an increase over last year. In the 22 years of TBFs program over 168,000 billsh have been tagged and of those more than 2,800 have been recaptured and most re-released. TBF still has the highest recapture rates for a traditional tagging program thanks in big part to the eorts from the sport-shing community. And the release category, which began nine years ago, has logged in over 66,000 billsh releases reported to TBF. On its website (http://Billsh.org), TBF displays numerous examples of tracks illustrating billsh traveling thousands of miles giving vital data on their biology and movement patterns to eectively advocate for sound science-based billsh management and policy. And with the recent introduction of TROD, a new fast, free and easy Tag & Release Online Database, TBF can accurately and quickly get all the vital information for its work plus provide its scientists with the hard evidence to support that sport shing is a huge economic piece in the U.S. economy and that conservation pays. (Editors note: is is also true of Guatemala where ocean shing is considered a world-class sport.) Recently celebrating its 25th anniversary, TBF works worldwide to advance the conservation of billsh and associated species and to improve the health of oceans and dependent economies.
