16 If youre looking for an o-the-beatentrack destination where you can visit an ancient Mayan city and experience nature, Aguateca, the Sun-Faced Mountain, might be the place. Located in the jungle atop a low limestone hill on the banks of Lake Petexbatn, it is well preserved and features an impressive natural chasm that is a must to explore. e origins of Aguateca are estimated to date back to the late Mayan Preclassic period (300 BD to 350 AD). After being densely populated around 700 AD it was later invaded by enemies and abandoned during the ninth century, as were other cities in the Mayan world. e exodus was so fast that one of the buildings was left unnished. You will come upon this, the defense wall, AguatecaA perfect combination of a cultural and natural experience TRAVEL text/photos by Helena Oswald www.ubisworld.com Site of the Royal Palace Stelae at Aguateca

the house of the governor and other smaller structures as you walk through the site. One of the highlights certainly are the detailed stelae (or their replicas) on the main plaza. Also at the site keep your eyes open for monkeys jumping from tree to tree. Probably you will hear them long before you see them, especially the howler monkey, as its roar can be heard several kilometers away. Just imagine standing right beneath one of them when it starts to vocalize. If you venture into the chasm, which is about 50 to 60 meters deep and only a few meters wide, you might also run into snakes and other little creepy animals. erefore, watch out as you make your way down the slippery path into the dark creek, which used to serve as a natural defense line. Better yet, take a ashlight. Not only is Aguateca ...continued page 58e last part of the trip will take you on a 40-minute boat ride on the Petexbatn River. Watch for turtles, birds and the occasional crocodile lurking among the mangroves. 17

18 Just o of the paved highway between Chiquimula and Esquipulas is the municipality of San Jacinto, where 20 women from the aldeas of Agua Zarco Abajo, Agua Zarco Arriba and Lomas make baskets. ey are known as Asociacion de Mujeres Artesana de San Jacinto (AMASAJA) and their slogan is Mujeres, tejiendo el presente con bres del pasado or Women, weaving in the present with bers of the past. ey are supported by Fortalecienda la institucionalidad de las mujeres guatemaltecos and CSEM Centro de Servicio para Emprendimientos de las mujeres. ese women use coiling, which is an uncommon Guatemalan basket-making technique. It was introduced to the San Jacinto women in the early 1980s as an economic-development project. Coiled baskets are made with an inner core that wraps around in a spiral, held to the previous row with another strand or thread. Coiled baskets are made in the departments of Solol (pine needle and grass) and Chiquimula (pine needle, braided maguey and palm). TRADITION text/photos by Kathy RoussoWeaving in the present with bers of the pastCoiling Baskets

PAGE 21

19 e San Jacinto weavers use basketry bers from palm and coconut palm fronds. e inner foundation of the basket coil is the bena or spine part of the palm frond and is separated out from the outer, thinner edges with a needle. e outer frond is stripped into thin lengths with a needle and is used as the thread to hold the inner coil in place. A needle is not used when poking the sharp pointed end between the coils. e three natural colors of the baskets come from the outer, older palm fronds, which are green; the inner, younger palm fronds, which are white; and the coconut fronds, which are brown. e palm is harvested when the plant is 10-20 years old. One-anda-half palm fronds are enough for a 10-inch basket, which can be completed in about two days. e work always starts with the pointed end of the frond strip. San Jacinto baskets come in many sizes and shapes and include tortilleras (round with a lid), bolsas (rectangular), aisladores (round and at), bolsas tecuaco (oval with handles), joyeros (heart-shaped), papeleros (open and rectangular), and fruteros (open round or oval). ey are sold in Agua Zarco Abajo (Irma Santiagos house), San Jacinto (Irma Cruzs house) and in the gift shop of the Paleontology, Archaeology and Geology Museum Karl Sapper in Estanzuela, about nine kilometers from Zacapa.

20 As we nd ourselves right in the midst of this important year for the Mayan cosmovision 2012, one of the most intriguing Mayan archeological sites that cant be missed is Takalik Abaj, recently nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013. is amazing historical treasure, situated not far from the coastal town of Retalhuleu, is one of few sites in the world with evidence of both Olmec and Mayan cultures in one place. If Tikal represents the culmination of Mayan civilization, Takalik Abaj represents its birth, and a visit to this site will bring your understanding of the Mayan civilization full circle. Takalik Abajs history bridges two millenniafrom 1000 B.C.E to 1000 C.E.as well as many cultures. From the middle Preclassic Era we nd low, wide clay ceremonial platformsand rounded sculptures, juxtaposed against Mayan hieroglyphics and large count dates from the late Preclassic Era. It is also the only place in the world that exhibits such a large quantity of sculptures demonstrating both Olmec and Mayan culturessuch as one famous sculpture with the body of a jaguar body and face of a man. e quality of sculptures and quantity of styles are a highlight of the site, as well as recent nds such as a jade necklace and other jade carvings.

21When an accident forced her to stop riding ve years ago, California-raised Suzanne Divo was determined to keep working with horses, and on the streets of La Antigua Guatemala she saw an opportunity; Helping Hooves (HH) was born. Made up of three women, Helping Hooves started working with Antiguas horse and carriage drivers with the goal of improving the well-being of the horses and educating the owners on how best to take care of them. Five months on, the project is going from strength-to-strength. A lot of people used to complain about the conditions of the horses, but now the carriage men are doing everything in their power to help them, and you can really see a dierence. e horses coats are shiny and their bones dont stick out, says Divo. We told the men that the horses needed to have stalls in the rainy season and they built them within two months. With help from the British charity World Horse Welfare, Helping Hooves has introduced a strict schedule of regular shoeing. e cost for worming and equine dental clinics is split between owners and HH. In the past, the horses were shod by laymen with little expertise, which often resulted in many of their hooves being o balance, but now they have ...cont. page 52Helping HoovesCommunity Service by Anna-Claire Bevan (annaclairebevan.wordpress.com) photos: Csar Tin Local organization helps Antiguas carriage horses

38 When in July of 2010 Guatemala City called for all red buses to be removed from certain parts of the capital, Hugo Cristal and his business partner Alexander Escobar came up with a novel way to keep their bus in service. A fast-food restaurant on wheels was born. e idea came about because we wanted to carry on using the bus, even though the route had been taken over by Transurbano buses, says Cristal. e eet of Transurbano buses that operates around certain parts of the city was introduced by the government to increase safety aboard public transport. But, inevitably, the new system put many red buses into disuse and many were sold as scrap metal. Cristal and Escobar did not want their bus to suer the same fate. I had experience in cooking and so we decided to turn it into a restaurant, says Cristal. However, the former transportistas chose not to tell their family and friends about their bus career change until it had undergone its transformation and was ready for its rst day of work. ...continued page 40Busito del SaborI NNOV ATION by Anna-Claire Bevan Mobile restaurant cruises the capital

Even though the bus has only been in operation as a fast-food restaurant since last November, it is proving to be a hit with locals and students alike.

Other assistance includes treatment against parasites and new shoes with a lip that helps to protect the hoof from rubbing against Antiguas cobblestones. e treatment and clinics are not free, but costs are kept to a minimum thanks to the generosity of local vet Jorge Caballeros and students who have been working with Helping Hooves to improve the conditions of the carriage horses. As well, were forever in debted to World Horse Welfare; if it hadnt have been for their support we wouldnt be where we are today, admits Divo. In the future, Helping Hooves hopes to set up nutritional clinics and obtain smaller carriages, which will be lighter for the horses to pull. e horses changed everything for us, says Divo. Now its like we have 14 grandchildren. their shoes changed every three weeks. As well as organizing clinics and giving advice, Helping Hooves has also implemented a number of rules aimed at improving the working conditions of the horses. Each carriage displays a sticker stating how many people are allowed on board at one time and the drivers are awarded gold ribbons depending on how closely they abide by the rules. We have a great relationship with the carriage owners. ey trust us and understand why we wanted to start working with them. So far three of the carriages have gold ribbons for good maintenance and were hoping that they all will soon, says Divo. Helping Hooves cont. from page 21

56 Careful, now. Just a bit too much yellow oil paint mixed with cyan yields a bright apple green rather than avocado. A bit too little and youve dull old olive drab on your palette. ose avocado-green stoves and refrigerators of the 1970s were too shiny-bright to be correctly avocado. Get it just right, and your still life of an avocado salad with ripe tomatoes and fresh lettuce looks good enough to eat. Maybe Ill make such a salad tonight. Californians and Guatemalans share love of the smooth, creamy fruit, brought north from La Antigua Guatemala to the Pasadena area by Wilson Poponoe over a century ago. Well, most love it. e mouth-feel displeases a few. e texture of avocado fruit isnt appreciated by some whove not grown up with it. Somehow theyll eat it as guacamole with tortilla chips, however. Avocado production has spread from Central America to other warm climates, sometimes prepared sweet in milkshakes or ice cream. Here, its never served sweet, but occasionally cooked lightly as an accompaniment or scrambled with eggs or even rolled up with rice and seaweed as a sushi. Whatever, its an acquired taste. But what could be a better taste than slices of avorful avocado wrapped in wonderful Guatemalan corn tortillas? Some years ago the British chain Marks & Spencer ew in fresh avocado fruit from Guatemala and sold it as avocado pear. Soon housewives came to get their money back, saying those pears were inedible. eyd tried to x custards and tries with the pears, and it didnt work. So Marks & Spencer quickly dropped that word and sold the fruit as simply avocados, and they caught on with our British cousins. I hope theyve caught on with you, too.

Watch for turtles, birds and the occasional crocodile lurking among the mangroves. e easiest access to Aguateca is from Flores. It is a 45-minute taxi ride from there to Sayaxch, where you catch the boat to the site. Alongside the river and right inside the jungle there are a few options for overnight lodging. ere are also a few hotel options in Sayaxch. As Aguateca is so remote, not many people come here. erefore, there is no entrance fee. If you have the time, also visit the twin city Dos Pilas and nearby Ceibal. e three sites together make a wonderful twoto three-day adventure.

One aspect of FLAARs research is to nd out all the healthful fruits and vegetables that have been available in Guatemala since the time of the Classic Maya. We are also interested in understanding how these Classic Maya could feed the substantial populations of their ancient cities in areas that are semi-abandoned rainforests or low-populated mountain areas today. We are learning that Maya families would tend to have a fruit garden around their houses. So we are making lists of which species and studying its nutritional benets. Most people, even today, have a wide variety of tropical trees in their home gardens these trees provide a dierent fruit every month or so. ere are a lot of tropical trees that might have been introduced by the Maya into the traditional agriculture practice nowadays. ...cont. on following page Edible Fruits of the Mayan Dietby Dr. Nicholas M.

For this article we selected one of these. e scientic name is spelled with two ns; the popular name with one n. Almost everybody in Guatemala has eaten a guanaba or an anona at least once in his or her life. ere is one species that we are interested in right nowthe annonna squamosa; its Spanish name is chirimoya. e English name is sugar apple or sweetsop. e Mayan name is tsalmuy, and the Nahual name is poshte. is fruit has a heart shape, with green to gray color. Even though the tree is believed to be originally from the north part of the Andes in South America, it was widely planted in Central America, especially among the Mayan lands. To this day, many people plant this tropical tree in their home gardens. Sugar apple, another of the annona species, is used as a food supplement and medicinal plant. e edible part is the pulp in the fruit. e pulp has a white color, with a creamy texture and a sweet taste. Its leaves are also used. It is said that when you put the leaves in the childrens baths, it calms skin irritation. Studies carried out since 2003 have been trying to determine if the leaves of the sugar apple have an antidiabetic compound and whether the compound could be used to produce medicine to treat this disease.

74 I wrote about a similar topic for women for May (Mothers Day) and thought the gender issue might apply here toward men. Two menperhaps more than othershave inuenced my eorts toward the preservation and positive development of La Antigua Guatemala since 1969. Mario Antonio Sandoval is one of Guatemalas best-known journalists. He became a great friend in 1978 when we wrote articles about Antiguas preservation for Prensa Libre, where he was editor-in-chief. His list of accomplishments is overwhelming as he began working at Prensa Libre as a reporter in 1966his father was one of the ve founders in 1951and is currently the vice president. Since 1982, we have enjoyed getting the update on Guatemalan ethics in politics and economics through his column Catalejo. He created Guatenoticias, a newspaper for Guatemalans living abroad in the 1980s. He dedicated 24 years to teaching journalism at the Universidad Rafael Landvar where, in 1993, he became a professor in ethics and Guatemalan contemporary history. He was on the front lines during the 1993 protests against President Serranos censorship. Perhaps he is best known today as president of Guatevision, the most inuential and reliable cable channel in the countrya forerunner in independent journalism. is has helped Guatemalas birth of democracy tremendously. Mario Antonio has taken on countless topics nationally and internationally. Over the years, he has fought for just causes, including the freedom of the press, and making sense out of Guatemalas politics and economyno easy task. Architect Jos Mara (Chema) Magaa Jurez has been at the helm of historic preservation for Antigua since 1979 when he became conservator of the city. After returning in 1976 from Rome, where he worked with an intergovernmental organization dedicated to the conservation of cultural heritage (ICCROM), his preservation eorts began with restoring the cathedral in Guatemala City after the 1976 earthquake. His work led to Pope John Paul I awarding him with the Pro Ecclesia et Pontice (1979). As conservator of Antigua (1979-86), his job was to keep Antigua from falling down, implement building permits, supervise the restoration of art, and set up childrens programs to guarantee the future of restoration eorts in Antigua. Next he reactivated Amigos de Antigua, encouraging ...continued page 80 by Elizabeth Bell /ASK ELIZABETH Who are some of Guatemalas most inspiring men?

She just thinks that it is a game and wont let go. Answer: Teach this with a big toy, so you can hold one end while your dog holds the other. Playfully wiggle it and tell your dog take it. When she does, let her chew or tug a few seconds while you continue holding. Now say your release cuethank you or giveand show your dog a treat in your other hand about six inches from the side of her mouth, so shell have to let go to reach it. When she does, praise her, but dont pull the toy away. After she swallows the treat, immediately oer the toy back, saying take it. She will soon understand there is a big reward for letting goa treat and the toy. Repeat several times, then cue the release without showing treats. Most dogs release expecting a treat, so praise, treat and re-oer the toy. If she doesnt release on the rst try, cue and show the treat a couple more times and then try again without showing it. After several days of playing this game, omit the treat and just playfully oer the toy back. If she steals something she shouldnt have, dont scold, just cue the release and reward with praise, a treat and a favorite toy.

As shared in this column a month ago, living o grid requires taking an honest inventory of your true needs. An honest review of electrical devices that will require solar panels and batteries is not just an economic decisionfar from it! Reviewing electrical use builds aware ness of ones values and choices.

An accurate review is essential both for the physical specications and for your sense of empowerment. Awareness builds clarity around our choices.

In this case, my teacher was 8 years old, and I was welcoming the abuse. During Semana Santa, I became one of the thousands of international students who have studied at Quetzaltenangos renowned language schools. e anecdote above came during my home stay, where two extraordinarily hospitable Guatemalans and their children put me up in an apartment on their roof, while I worked for ve hours a day in one-on-one tutoring. I had already lived in Guatemala a yearand-a-half when the week started. Yet since I primarily use English for my job my Spanish has suered, and I hoped seven days of forced immersion would make uency a bit more visible over the horizon. I was right. Quetzaltenango (or Xela, an abbreviation of its Mayan name Xelaj) is an ideal location to buckle down and study, and you can hardly go two blocks without seeing signs for a wide variety of schools. Tucked over 7,000 feet up in the Western Highlands, Xela avoids the urban sprawl of the capital without sacricing any major comforts (theres even a Walmart, if youre into that sort of thing). Covered in an eclectic mix of Spanish-colonial and Greco-Roman architecture, the city provides plenty of activities, and lots of locals are happy to help improve your ugly writing. Prices range from around $100 to $200 a week, including the home stay. Tutors are used to teaching all skill levels, from travelers who havent struggled with por and para since high school, to bilingual humanrights lawyers like Daniel Wilkinson, who brushed up on his Spanish here in Xela before writing Silence on the Mountain, a journalistic tour de force that should be required reading for any Guatemala traveler.
