17 The heat and the orange-colored dust on my windshield were signs that I was getting close to Hacienda El Jabaln, a beautiful property in southern Guatemala. I came to meet Jos Alejos, the tough but smiling cowboy, who would be demonstrating how he works with young horses. After a wonderful country breakfast, Alejos told me that he wanted to work with a young horse that was still uncomfortable bearing a saddle. Twenty minutes later he and the young horse were dancing together in unison. ough North American horse trainer Monte Roberts, known as the man who listens to horses, brought humane treatment of horses to the attention of the general public, there are many talented horse trainers who communicate with horses in a similar fashion. ese magic creatures, says Alejos, gesturing to his horses, are my connection to a meaningful life. For Alejos and his family, life at Hacienda El Jabaln is lived simply. No electricity means quiet evenings, healthy, good food on the table, family, friends the ancestral land is linked with family ties that span generations. In younger years, Alejos taste for physical challenges brought him championships in motorbike racing and judo, and he qualied as a member of the Professional Bull Riders Association. With years of experience and natural talent, Alejos blends honesty and philosophy, leadership and love into his work with horses. From El Jabaln, Alejos work spans the globe, working with championship horse teams, show horses, equestrian clubs, legendary stables and Olympic equestrians. I came away from my experiences at El Jabaln feeling inspired and motivated by the example of Jos Alejos life: his land, his family, many friends, and, of course, his magical creatures.PROFILE by Maru Luarca photos by Silvia Asturias and Natalie Martn 17

18 Although not all scientists agree on the origin of the cacao plant, the consensus is that it is a native of the rainforests of Venezuela and the Amazon and was brought to Central America millennia ago by traders. e earliest evidence of human consumption of cacao in Guatemala comes from a site in the northeast section of the country, where a 3,500-year-old pottery vessel tested positive for remnants of theobroma cacao. Exactly how the Olmec were consuming cacao has not been determined, but they might have been mixing it with native wild honey and chili. Sometime around 1,000 B.C. the Maya, whose civilization ourished from the Yucatn Peninsula to the Pacic coast of Guatemala, are believed to have cultivated the cacao tree for the very rst time. e Maya so highly valued cacao, they used cocoa beans as currency and to pay taxes. Spanish conquistador Cortez was fascinated by native cocoa-drinking customs. Chronicler Bernal Daz del Castillo observed that royalty drank cocoa from vessels of gold, and that ground cocoa was kept by the wealthy in gold containers. e Aztecs eobroma Cacaoe Heavenly Elixer GASTRONOMY text/photos by Captain or Janson Maya cacao god, Ek Chuah

19 made a drink of nely ground cocoa beans, mixed in water and beaten to a froth with a wooden molinet. ey spiced the cocoa with native vanilla and chili peppers, and some added honey to the mix. Chocolate is a divine, celestial drink, the sweat of the stars, the vital seed, divine nectar, the drink of the gods, panacea and universal medicine. Geronimo Piperni, quoted by Antonio Lavedn, Spanish Army surgeon, 1796 e name chocolate comes from the Nahuatl word atte, which in the Mexican Spanish language means water, and from the sound that the water and cacao blend makes as it is whipped up by the cook: choco, choco, choco, until it is bubbly and rises into a froth. Today cacao is cultivated all over the equatorial tropics, from Vanuatu to West Papua and from Sri Lanka to Sierra Leon. In Guatemala the largest commercial plantations are in Retalhuleu, but the true heartland of cacao remains in the region of Alta Verapaz. Here hundreds of small, local producers in Lanqun, Cahabn and Chisec continue to produce some of the worlds nest chocolate in much the same manner as did their ancestors thousands of years ago. Chocolate has its roots in Guatemala and is the traditional cup oered for hospitality as well as the communal brew distributed at Cacao pod ready for harvesting Cocoa beans being prepared for roasting Tostadura Antigua owner and chocolate expert, Tony Ryals

20 all Mayan sacred and ceremonial events. We can be certain that on Dec. 21 Maya everywhere will be toasting the arrival of the new era with a gourd full of frothy, aromatic, slightly bitter, slightly sweet chocolate. A new study reveals that chocolate produces heart-healthy benets. e research found that epicatechin, one of a group of chemicals known as avanols, is directly linked to improved circulation and other hallmarks of cardiovascular health. e discovery was detailed in the Jan. 16 online issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Although previous studies strongly indicated that some avanol-rich foods, such as wine, tea and cocoa, can oer cardiovascular health benets, we have been able to demonstrate a direct relationship between the intake of certain avanols present in cocoa, their absorption into the circulation and their eects on cardiovascular function in humans, said biochemist Hagen Schroeter of the University of California, Davis. e study relied on volunteers from the Kuna Indians, who live on the San Blas islands o the coast of Panama.

21 pressure and other signs of cardiovascular disease are rare among the Kuna. And they are known to consume large amounts of avanol-rich cocoathree to four cups a day. Previous studies found that Kuna who migrated to the suburbs of Panama City on the mainland drink only about four cups of cocoa per week and do not enjoy the same level of cardiovascular health. e islanders have twice the level of urinary nitric oxide, a chemical associated with healthy ow of blood through the arteries. And those who drank cocoa with more avanols had higher levels of nitric oxide. Also, higher levels of epicatechin in the bloodstream were accompanied by improved blood ow. Lab tests showed that avanols allow vascular tissue to relax. Finally, tests showed that pure epicatechin had much the same eect as avanol-rich cocoa. e results of this study provide direct proof that epicatechin is, at least in part, responsible for the benecial vascular eects that are observed after the consumption of certain avanol-rich cocoas,   Schr oeter said. e hub of traditional chocolate production is in the little town of San Juan del Obispo, located just up the hill from La Antigua Guatemala on the slope of volcano Agua. Here numerous small family factories have been producing homemade drinking chocolate for generations. One of the best known local producers is Doa Josefa, who welcomes visitors to her small operation where they can see how cacao beans are selected, toasted, ground and, after being mixed with sugar and a variety of special additives such as cinnamon, almonds or rice, are formed into the round tablets, which are available for purchase all around Antigua. To arrange for a tour of her facilities (Chocolate San Juan, 1a avenida norte #10, San Juan del Obispo), After water, cocoa is the single healthiest substance you can put in your mouth. It can easily replace a number of psychiatric drugs, plus it produces the same chemistry in the brain that occurs when we fall in love.

38 You dont need to see to be able to read was the message Publinews Guatemala sent to the world last month when it launched Central Americas rst Braille newspaper. Together with the Committee for Blind and Deaf People in Guatemala (Prociegos), Publinews produced 2,500 copies, which were distributed to visually impaired people throughout the country. e project, which is nanced by four sponsoring businesses, will continue as a free monthly medium with the aim of providing blind and other visually impaired people the latest news and current aairs. Its important for visually impaired people to have access to dierent forms of communication and to feel a part of society. ey have the same human rights as everyone else and should be granted them by the state, says Edilzar Castro Quiroz, director of education at Prociegos. It is estimated that more than 110,000 people in Guatemala have a visual disabilitya problem that is magnied in rural parts of the country, where availability to medical care and special resources is limited. Jorge Mario Cifuentes lost his sight 20 years ago after he was diagnosed with pigmented retinopathy and now works at Prociegos as the sports and recreation program coordinator. Having a visual impairment in Guatemala, like any other kind of impairment, is very dicult. Most institutions that deal with this issue are private and the states reaction to this subject is very limitedespecially on the theme of education. For me to be able to hold a newspaper in Braille is a reection that society is gaining an awareness of the needs of blind people, says Cifuentes. Around eight months ago, Publinews started working with focus groups to nd out what specic articles and sections would be of most interest to visually impaired peopleand it tailored its content accordingly. e Braille newspaper has the same 16page format as Publinews agship version but features articles that have been specically adapted to suit the interests of blind people. Prociegos says the newspaper opens a door to blind people who are more than qualied to contribute to journalism by CC ommunity Service by Anna-Claire BevanGuatemala launches Central Americas rst Braille newspaperNewsworthy...continued page 72

52 For over 50 years, Lyn Hovey has been working with stained glass, using 13th and 14th century painting techniques to create complex and authentic works of art. From a 30-foot-tall window in a school chapel in the U.S., to a spherical steel and stained glass awning in Taiwan, his designs decorate oces, churches, schools, hospitals and homes around the world. In 1972, Hovey opened his rst studio in Boston, Massachusetts, and over 30 years later founded another one in La Antigua Guatemala. Alongside a small team of local experts, the talented artist specializes in creating stained glass windows, illuminated mirrors and Tiany-inspired bent glass lampshades all created using the traditional painting and ring method. I dont know of any other rm making bent glass lamps, says Hovey. I think it shows the skill of the Guatemalan workforce that here you nd this complicated design. Last year, Hovey was presented with a sketch of a traditional Guatemalan huipil and challenged to execute it into a unique stained glass window for a house on the outskirts of Antigua. We wanted a stained glass window with a typical Guatemalan design on it, and theres nothing more Guatemalan than textiles, says the homeowner, Jan eberge. It took the artist, Corinna Wittel, just 10 minutes to sketch the design, which she originally intended to give to eberge as a sample. However, as soon as eberge saw it, she thought it was perfect and passed Wittels rough huipil draft straight onto Hovey.

56 Sensuous GG uatemala by Ken Veronda Candy-Apple RedThe proud owner of a candy-applered 1970s Camaro can sometimes be spotted cruising zones nine and ten of the Big City, but most Guatemalan car paint isnt quite so ashy. However, that deep metallic candy-apple paint, with a transparent coat setting it o, does show up in other places around the country that you can search out easily. Look into a music store in big or small towns, and there are racks of imported electric guitars waiting to tempt teen shoppers. Look again most are painted candy-apple, as are many of the bicycles and motorcycles on sale for slightly older kids. No wonder the bright color has been picked up by makers of painted wooden toys and trays from Totonicapn, and by weavers who put little blossoms of mercerized red thread on place mats and runners for sale to tourists. Sail along Lake Isabal and Rio Dulce, or visit Monterrico and Iztapa on the Pacic, and youll see lots of boats big and small painted with streaks of dazzling candy-apple red. Some beach shacks have signs on the sand, advertising soft drinks or cell phone service from those big corporations that know candy-apple red will catch your eye and sell their stu. But if you really want to see lots of candy-apple red in Guatemala, stacked high and glowing, go right to the source. At any villages esta, on Sundays after church, after processions any time of the year, candy-apple red will be featured, easy to spot among the churros, carnes, and dulces on sale by vendors. ere, glowing behind glass will be real candy apples, hand-dipped on sticks.

60 Sacred AA nimals and Exotic T T r opical Plantsby Dr. Nicholas M. Hellmuth, FLAAR ReportsWhile visiting the Petn, Alta Verapaz or the costa sur, youll most likely see leaf-cutting ant trails, which look like miniature highways running through a lawn. One aspect about leaf-cutting ants that is seldom written about is their propensity to carry owers (rather than leaves). In the last three years I have found ants harvesting and carrying owers about 90 percent of the time I have been out in the eld studying ora and fauna. is does not mean 90 percent of them carry owers; it means that if you go into remote areas, you have a 90 percent chance that at least one of the zompopo trails are occupied by ants carrying owers. e ants do not eat the owers or the leaves. Instead, zompopos exude a liquid on the owers or leaves and eat the fungus that grows as a result. Sometimes the ants climb high into trees to harvest owers from vines. I saw this on the property of the Posada Paso Caribe, an hour up the Arroyo Petex Batun from Sayaxche, Petn. But normally the ants harvest owers that are already on the ground. From my experience it seems that the ants are opportunistic: ey cut up and carry o to their nest just about any ower that is convenient. For example, at the Parque Nacional Tikal, near the aguada next to the visitors center, the zompopos were cutting up the complex owers of Pachira aquatica. ey cut every single part of the ower. e version of the Popol Vuh that we have today comes from the Highland Quich. But the core aspects of the story of the Hero Twins shooting a mythical bird-monster deity atop a tree goes back to about 200 to 300 years BC in the pre-Mayan stelae of Izapa, lowland Chiapas near the GuatemaLeaf-cutting Ants Like Flowers.

Although you can nd leaf-cutting ants in the Highlands (such as Alta Verapaz, along the road between Cahabn and Senah), I would not expect to nd zompopos in some parts of El Quich. is is a long way of saying that originally there were many dierent regional versions of the Popol Vuh. Each regional Mayan language had its own version. Most shared certain chapters, and all had some heritage from pre-Mayan versions such as Izapa. What is interesting is that in the story of the Popol Vuh the zompopos also cut tail features of the birds. I have heard of these ants being a plague on farms, but will need to see if we can document ants carrying sections of bird feathers. After all, the story of the Popol Vuh does have mythical underworld aspects. My goal is not to say that everything in the myth is direct observation of actual habits of plants and animals. My goal is to nd and study all mention of plants and animals in the Popol Vuh, and nd out which are nat

If you do not live in Guatemala, this is a great country to visit if you like to photograph plants or animals (and insects). Guatemala oers much more than the impressive Mayan archaeological ruins; Central America oers much more than the beautiful Lake Atitln and important Spanish colonial architecture of La Antigua Guatemala. Guatemala is also a paradise of tropical owers, and remarkable (and hard-working) insects, which harvest these owers. So when you have time, consider visiting Guatemala to see the diverse eco-systems throughout the country. I work (as a consultant in advanced digital imaging) in China, Korea and Europe, and reside in St. Louis, Missouri. But I come to Guatemala as often as I can to nd and photograph (and experience) the wonders of Mother Nature. e purpose of this discussion by FLAAR Reports is to share my experiences as a visitor to Guatemala and to learn that some aspects of the Popol Vuh are based on real plants, animals and insects of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador.

72 writing articles and helping with the production process. e idea was to create a project that went along the lines of what Publinews represents, which is a positive media for Guatemalan society. We detected that the visually impaired community had been a little forgotten about and we wanted to support them and prioritize their rights, says Hugo Perez, director of marketing at Publinews. Its a little drop of water, but its making a lot of waves. As well as covering the latest international, national, technology and sports news, the paper also features an Inspirational Person of the Month, with the aim of motivating other visually impaired people to achieve their potential. is month the focus is on Brandon Aspuac, an athlete who will be representing Guatemala in the 800m and 1500m events in this years Paralympic Games in London. Publinews launched Latin Americas rst Braille newspaper in Chile two years ago and has been building on the experience in Guatemala. e Chapin version has been so popular that Prociegos is already in talks to send it to El Salvador. e paper has been very well received by the visually impaired community and there have been lots of people coming directly to our oces asking for it. Its a complex project that requires a lot of hard work, but that eort is nothing in comparison to what it gives the blind community, says Castro Quiroz. Sonia Hernandez works as a telephone operator at Prociegos: Ive always been a fan of the news and enjoy reading more than listening. I used to listen to the radio at work, but it was dicult as the phone would ring and Id lose the thread of the story. When they rst gave me this Braille edition, I just sat down right then and there and devoured it. Im really happy with it. Its a normal newspaper that speaks about national and international issuesthe only dierence is that its in braille, says Hernandez. Publinews and Prociegos both agree that the most important step now is to increase the newspapers circulation and its frequency, but say that in the short term it will continue as a monthly newspaper thanks to the support of their four sponsors. rBraille NN ewspaper cont. from page 38

74 by Elizabeth Bell /ASK ELIZABETH Becoming a Guatemalan CitizenDuring the 43 years that I have lived in Antigua, I have cofounded and participated in many committees, associations and foundations to improve the quality of life for our residents. Ranging today from education to microcredit and promoting cultural activities, many of these meetings usually relate to nding solutions to problems that we have identied over the years. Four-plus years ago, I was attending one of the group association meetings (where a number of local committees meet), and mentioned that I didnt votebut I did enjoy having a voice. It was right before the 2007 elections. While no one commented, it struck me like lightning that I should become a Guatemalan citizen, particularly since the U.S. allows dual citizenship. And the process began. Many thought it was a no brainer since I married a Guatemalan (widowed), have two Guatemalan children, a Guatemalan business and have lived here so long. It was more work than I thought! First to Migracin, then to the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores, then to Gobernacin in Guatemala City, back to Migracin, Relaciones Exteriores (countless times). Since it is a presidential decree, the paperwork was then sent to former President Colomoops, they needed more ight informationback againoops, they didnt notice a stamp in my passport. Back again to the presidents desk. Much to my dismay, Migracin does keep track of all the airport paperwork we ll out over 43 years, that was quite a few items. (I thought they made recrackers out of old paperwork as they did in colonial times!) is time, President Prez Molina did sign it on April 9th and the presidential decree was published in the Diario de Centro Amrica. I could have written a book and a half with all the paperwork and certainly have the side-stories to share. All in all, at least now we can call the government oces and they nd the information on their computers! I joined 18 other foreign nationals at Relaciones Exteriores on May 30th to be sworn in as a Guatemalan. I didnt hire a lawyer and there were no fees (except for the Spanish language test). If time is money, it is priceless! While I missed voting in the 2011 elections, I can now call it my country. at is priceless.

I have heard that it is not a good idea to use a tranquilizer or sedative on a cat, but he doesnt travel well and wont even go into his carrier. What do you suggest? Answer: Several types of sedatives can be given to cats, but the eects vary with the individual pet. e most common are acepromazine and diazepam (Valium), both provide a relatively wide margin of safety. e eects of these drugs vary with the cats age, weight and general health. For international travel your cats veterinarian will need to issue a certicate of health so you can ask at that time about an appropriate sedative. It would be benecial to run a trial, you can give him the prescribed dosage and observe him over the next four to six hours to determine if the desired eect is achieved. Putting him into the carrier and taking him on a car ride should give you an idea of how the medication is working. You would like him to be sedate and calm, not dopey nor unconscious. From the trial dosage, you will be able to adjust the medication to get the proper eect. Be sure to discuss this with your veterinarian. Importantly, a small dog or cat can travel in the cabin with its owner and can be sedated, especially if he is anxious and might makes noises that would bother other passengers. It is NOT recommended to sedate or tranquilize pets that would be traveling in the luggage area of the aircraft. Although airlines transport animals in areas that are pressure and temperature controlled, the sedative eect of the medication does not allow the animals normal body response to function normally. e airlines have denite policies as to what constitutes a proper pet carrier for air travel. Generally, the carrier is made of sturdy berglass/plastic with a metal door and numerous air vents. e carrier should be large enough to allow the pet to stand up and turn around without being cramped.

88 I never have understood the appeal of the Smurfs. I once supposed their dialogue was a preschool guessing game. OK, Joey, what does the third word in e smurfs smurfed all the smurfs to the smurf mean? e smurest Spanish verb may be pegar. A classical root is missing, and only Portuguese and Catalonian have even semicognates for it. So I suspect that it appeared after Romes fall, maybe Visigoth raiders smurfed it into local Iberian languages as a pidgin catchall? Pegar translates about every fth English verb. Meanings include (but are not limited to): sticking, gluing, clinging, matching/ harmonizing, hitting, inicting, acquiring, experiencing, taking eect, giving, punishing, transmitting and infecting. If I had to reduce all this to a single commonality, maybe it would be axing. Now I try not to overuse pegar or any other all-purpose verb. Better just to know that I will hear it, and that it can mean whatnot; that way I am alert to confusions. But I also study its synonyms, so that my reply to, for instance, Me pegaste el mononucleosis! can be a clarifying, Yo te contagi el mono? Admittedly, there are times when only pegar is called for, as in pasting text; your computers pegar command means paste, and stamps se pegan to envelopes. So pasting and gluing are, overall, the most reliable equivalents. But for both kinds of sticking adhering and stabbingI prefer adherer and apualar in my clarifying replies. Perhaps because the former requires a stem change (e to ie), the Visigoth raiders, who did not know conjugation from constipation, started substituting pego for adhiero when they had to say I stick Smurf decals on my shield. is kind of sticking has transitive and passive-voice (se-le) forms. Transitive, as in Los visigotas pegan (adhieren) las calco-L ANGUAGANGUAG E by Dwight Wayne CoopPegar and Pegrsele

When I travel with my sons, they tell me, Dad, te nos pegamos. But te nos enganchamos has more precision. Another pegar caboodle relates to violence, real or implied. In this case, something harmful is axed with an anatomical instrument (boot, st, dirty look, etc.). If a blow, then you can just, uh, stick with the verb: mi reina me pega (my queen beats me), although golpear (to bruise/pound) is more precise (ella me golpea). In the interest of specicity, you need a noun to describe what has been axed on you; it can be the action described or its consequence. Hence, ey gave him a (1) a kick (2) a knock on the head (3) a bruise (4) a shot in the foot (5) a lash (6) an injectionwould be Le pegaron a l (1) una patada (2) un golpe en la cabeza (3) una contusion (4) un tiro en la pie (5) un latigazo (6) una inyeccin. But again, to avoid overusing pegar, I choose nite verbs like azotar (to lash, scourge) and inyectar. Zennily, pegar works not just for injections but for pills when they take eect: la aspirina me pega. en there is pegrsele (touched on above), which is really just pegarse, meaning is axed with an added indirect object (le, the target of the axing). ings that can be smurly pegados using pegrsele include accents (se te peg su acento), manners (se me pegaron sus hbitos malos), and the us (se nos peg la gripe). Now let us attend to matching and suiting. Traditional ways to express them are hacer juego (for clothes or drapes) and convenirle (for people or situations). So, where we once had la bolsa no hace juego con los zapatos, we can now say la bolsa no se pega con los zapatos. Instead of trabajar como payaso no le convena (working as a clown did not suit him/her), we can now say trabajar como payaso no se le pegaba. Even here, axing is alluded to, in that only certain things should ever be axedthings that match or suit. ere is more to pegar and pegarse. Happily, the associated adjective and noun are unzenny. Pegamento is always glue or paste. Pegado means stuck together or adjacent, as in mi casa est pegada con la suya (my house is next door to hers/his/theirs/yalls). is is sensible, given that mortar is masonry glue. But stuck indicating closeness/intimacy is unido. And sticky is mieloso (honey-y)or pegajoso. OK, reader. How much of all this se te pega? Will it stick with you?

96 Pacic Coast / LA sS LI sS A sS Step three in our water treatment at TOSA is UV ltration of the water. Ultraviolet light is not actually a lter it is a light wave that disarms living organ isms such as cysts, bacteria and viruses. e UV lter oers insurance that our guests can use water from any tap or shower and it will be healthy and pure. UV is the most expensive part of the system, and UV bulbs must be replaced an nually at a cost of around $400 each. We also suggest using ozone to treat your cis tern. Ozone systems can be purchased for under $200 and will sanitize a 500-gallon cistern. First use a sediment lter on your main water inlet that feeds the cistern, and then ozonate that water. Finally, pump the water through a carbon lter before it enters your home. We then add magic to our water. Quan tum science has shown that water delivered through pipes is attened and loses its structure and vitality. Professor Emoto of Ja pan published several books demonstrating the power that positive prayer has upon wa ter. Other scientists have demonstrated that water, which is tumbled down a mountain stream, has more life force. is life force is measured by analyzing the cluster size of the water molecule. Small cluster size hydrates your body faster. us water that has been spun, aerated and bounced is actually more bio-available than water from the tube. At TOSA we spin the water through pure quartz crystals, setting up counter rotating vortexes. ese vortexes cause the water to dissolve any negative impressions picked up from the environment or a municipal pro cessing plant. Water that has been vortex treated is alive and therefore you are alive and healthy, too! So the next time you take a sip of water, consider the vitality that is yours to enjoy with just a few steps of conscious action. Off the GG R II D cont. from page 83 I nd myself at the extremity of a long beach. How gladly does the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep! A greeting and a homage to the Sea! I descend over its margin, and dip my hand into the wave that meets me, and bathe my brow. That far-resounding roar is the Oceans voice of welcome. His salt breath brings a blessing along with it. Nathaniel Hawthorne, Foot-prints on the Sea-shore

Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the condence or take the risks. Yet most people dont. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever. Philip Adams Local resident ( )I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and r and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets. It has given me blessed release from care and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day. It has been a return to the primitive and the peaceful. Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and benumbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me I am happy.
