In her column this month, Antigua historian Elizabeth Bell explains the timing and origins of the cancula, as well as its ties to Sirius (the dog star) and the dog days of summer. Our featured article this month traces the footsteps of a video-production crew as it documented breathtaking scenery, friendly villagers and a dramatic sunrise overlooking Lake Atitln. Robin Caneld writes about his challenging-but-rewarding mountain hike with Quetzaltrekkers. Were also pleased to bring you Capt. or Jansons account of how a rural dairy farmers quest for water turned into something much bigger than a simple well. e discovery on the outskirts of Huehuetenango provided fossilized proof of prehistoric giants that once roamed the region. Documenting more recent history, Guatemala City sta writer Anna ClaireBevan takes us on a mini-tour of landmarks in Zone 1, such as Cien Puertas, El Portal, Cine Lux and more. For a real hands-on experience at the Pacic Coast, Tara Tiedemann tells us about the perils and pleasures of going crabbing in a mangrove maze. Dont forget the gloves. We hope you like our photo contest winners this month; Guatemala town fairs was the theme. And check out new Revue Highlights at www.REVUE.gt and on our Facebook pageon line and in print, we continue our mission of promoting the bright side of Guatemala.

15 Recent data reveals that at least 28 percent of Guatemalans suer from some kind of mental disorder during their lifetime. Multiple factors contribute to this condition, including genetic predisposition, children and adults who were subjected to poor parenting, and the consequences of psycho-social and environmental impact on daily life. Natural disasters, poor infrastructure and the civil war that ended in December 1996 created deep and severe emotional consequences for thousands of families, and there is the everyday violence that aects Guatemala and keeps the people in a constant state of fear and alert. In Solol, for example, many of our patients suer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Guatemala has not addressed mental health issues in terms of providing legislation or adapting a national policy. However, a strategic plan was developed in 2007 that focused on building a culture of mental health based on healthy life styles and providing mental health services within communities. Roadblocks to providing mental health care are obvious: the lack of human resources (0.57 psychiatrists and 0.35 psychologists per 100,000 residents), most heavily populated in Guatemala City; and the lack of economic resources (0.9 percent of the nations health budget is dedicated to mental health, 90 percent of this budget funds the national hospital in Guatemala City). Recently, an eort has begun to decentralize mental health services and oer local quality care. Besides the National Hospital of Mental Health and two big general hospitals in Guatemala City, there are now ve health facilities outside the city in Petn, Solol, Chimaltenango, Cuilapa and Jutiapathat have a psychiatrist on sta. At least 20 health service centers around the country have an attending psychologist. ese mental health teams are dedicated to providing clinical attention to patients of all ages with special attention to community advocacy, socialization and sensibility. Mental Health Care in GuatemalaHEALTH by Alejandro Paiz, M.D.Only 0.9% of the Guatemalas health budget is dedicated to mental health... there are 0.57 psychiatrists and 0.35 psychologists per 100,000 residents.

16 FIFTY THOUSAND YEARS AGOWe were in the middle of one of the Earths cool periods. Ice and snow covered much of the land. Massive glaciers grew to blanket vast expanses of South and North America. e highlands of Central America were a winter wonderland, where mastodon and megatherium frolicked. So much water was locked up in the ice that the oceans were much lower and coastlines were not where they are today. is was especially true on the Caribbean side of the Mesoamerican isthmus, where coastal plains extended tens or even hundreds of miles beyond the present shoreline. Changing climatic conditions caused many animal species from the Neotropical and Nearctic realms to converge on the isthmus, seeking more favorable weather. Vegetation had migrated, too. What had been highland temperate forests had moved down in elevation to become coastal pine-oak-liquid ambar groves. ermophilic species had made their way south to equatorial regions. Worldwide a land area the size of modern Africa had emerged from the waves. We think of Ice Age Europe as a tough landscape where cavemen struggled to survive, but the lower latitudes of our planet were quite pleasant. Humans, which had appeared on Earth millions of years previously, Paleontology by Captain or Janson (www.facebook/NUBLISELVA)Octavio Alvarado (rt.) has become the enthusiastic caretaker of the Chivacab Mammoth site, near Huehuetenango, which now has a small museum.

17 17were busy going about their business of being fruitful and multiplying, exploring new territory, adventuring, learning to cultivate gardens, and gathering around campres at night to gaze at the stars and be entertained by storytellers. Humans were few, nature was abundant, and skilled hunters and gatherers were able to provide plenty of nutritious food for their families. THIRTY THOUSAND YEARS AGO Explorers from eastern Asia, swept along by the Kuroshiro Current, managed to sail their rafts to the west coast of North, Central and South America. e land was rich and villages were established. Some of these brave, adventurous seafarers continued to make their way across the South Pacic, colonizing the high volcanic islands as they went, and eventually returning to Southeast Asia in a circumnavigation of the entire Pacic Ocean. Polynesians, whose territory comprises more than one-quarter of the planet, invented large, double-hulled catamarans, which could sail into the wind, allowing them to return and re-colonize South America. Little evidence remains to chronicle these early human endeavors simply because most settlements were built along coastlines that now lie beneath the waves. e great west coast mountain ranges and deserts slowed both North and South American coastal colonists eastward migrations. Slowly but surely, over tens of thousands of years, our ancestors populated the continents. THIRTY FIVE YEARS AGO A dairy farmer by the name of Octavio Alvarado, who lives in the tiny village of Chivacab on the outskirts of Huehuetenango, was excavating a well to get some water. e Alvarado farm is nestled in the Chivacab Canyon, which drains into the Ro Selegua of the Huehuetenango basin. To the north tower the Cuchumatanes mountains. When don Octavio reached a depth of seven meters he encountered a strange, long and curved stone. As anybody who has ever dug a well knows, the worst thing that can happen is to encounter big rocks, which can even necessitate starting all over again in a dierent spot. So our farmer was more concerned with the progress of his penetration than he was with the odd rock he had found. He struck the object with his pick and was relieved when it disintegrated rather easily. A few minutes later he hit another stone. is time he paid more attention to it because it looked just like a tootha molar, in fact except that it weighed more than ve pounds. Don Octavio, a cowboy ...continued page 72 Caretaker Alvarado gives museum tours to school children.

18 Id like to blame the altitude; I dont think Ive ever wheezed so much in my life as I did on my recent trek in the Western Guatemalan mountains. Its not as if I was trailing behind the group I usually kept up quite well. And when I was trailing, it was because my lm-crew partner and I were trying to pack up the tripod as the group ascended. Maybe it was the extra weight, the camera and gear that had me wheezing. It all started with a bus ride from Quetzaltenango to the city of Xecam, where we set out on the trail. Well, no. ats not right. My crew was there to make a movie, a documentary. It all started with a lot of research, deliberation and planning. ats what got us to Xecam ADVENTURE text and photos by Robin Caneld Where Quetzaltrekkers Dare

17 and on the trail with the guides from Quetzaltrekkers and other hikers. From the middle of Xecam we simply started uphill and kept going until the town was lost to sight behind us, down the mountain and around a bend in the path. We moved along a small, grassy road that shrank to a thin trail, then shrank again as we moved on into the trees. For three days my group followed in the aging tracks of guerillas to get across the mountains and through tiny villages, led by a Quetzaltrekker guide who had memorized every stop, every fork in the trail. I am the type of person who, back home, can be driving down the highway, glance at a string of mountains beside the highway and pick out one that looks perfect, that makes : e hiking troupe relaxes for a photo op : San Juan la Laguna : Pre-dawn at Lake Atitln ...continued page 92

(Notice in the photographs the dierence in the molecules based upon the energy given to the water.) rf nr t rt f n n nGuatemala and the Water of Life!Most people believe that water is just wetits water! Not true! ere are dierent qualities to the water we ingest. Some water is contaminated or acidic, even after being puried. Some water is enlivened and carries a dierent molecular structure. Some water is micro-clustered and easier for the body to assimilate. Some water is at and is slow to hydrate the body. ese dierences in water are indeed scientic facts. Why so many nuances in our H2O? How come water isnt just water? Unlike the air, which can be ltered of suspended toxins, water actually carries a memory of its interactions with toxins, emotions and environments. Water carries impressions both positive and negative. Even emotional energies, such as anger and love, register a lasting impression on water. As the world is diving greater into drought it is a powerful paradox that here in Guatemala we are able to connect with our water. In 2005 when Masaru Emoto published e Hidden Messages in Water, his book oered the potential to profoundly transform your world view. Using high-speed photography, Dr. Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specic, concentrated thoughts were directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that had been exposed to loving words showed brilliant, complex and colorful snowake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, formed incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. e implications of this research created a new awareness of how we can positively impact the Earth and our personal health. ...continued page 64

19COMMUNITY SERVICE text/photos by Axel Aburez Balambe@balambe.comTo walk on a steel cable strung among treetops 10 meters high was the challenge for the day. e adrenaline, the spirit of I can and the stunning view of the Panchoy Valley were elements of the event held by CasaSito and its allied organizations to strengthen relations among them. e challenge course and the teambuilding workshops provided by BALAMBE at its facilities outside La Antigua Guatemala were ideal ways to integrate the various entities. After a brief introduction and ice-breaking activities, the workshop started with the low-ropes course, executed on a set of cables 30 centimeters above ground. Leaders from participating organizationsLos Patojos, Semilla de Esperanza y Amor, EducArte, Brillo de Sol and CasaSitoexplored and developed their abilities on leadership, communication, thinking outside the box and the importance of teamwork; and all in an atmosphere of camaraderie, joy and nature. After snacks, the group faced the greatest challenge of the day, the high-rope course, a circuit of activities that connects four sturdy pine trees at 10 meters above ground, which added some degree of diculty to the event. Among cheers and a festive ambience, the team was able to make the exciting journey through the course, with assistance from facilitators and team members. e result was an increase in the participants self-esteem, their ability to break paradigms and recognize that through the help of team members, bigger goals can be achieved in order to serve their communities better.Antiguas team-building workshops add fun and adventure Outdoor Education...continued page 66

20 Stone carving at Takalik Abaj Its the beginning of the rainy season and Im relaxing in a hammock at my favorite little beachside haunt on the Pacic Coast of Guatemala. A couple of friends are sitting nearby. Were just hanging out and talking when someone mentions something about crabs. Crabs being one of my favorite seafood delights, I perk up. Crabs, where? What kind of crabs? I ask. ey explain that its crabbing season in the mangroves. Curious, I start probing for more information. For example, how does one get to the mangroves? How big are the crabs? How do you catch them? I can tell they are catching on to my planthis gringa wants to learn how to go crabbing. Now, this activity in Guatemala isnt something that most women do it is mostly a mans job. It involves mud, tides and mosquitoes, not to mention feisty crabs that pinch! As we discussed plans for the next days crabbing excursion, the guys were still trying to talk me out of it. Youre sure you want to do this? You know, there is a lot of mud. Its really hot and there are mosquitoes. Well, yes, I know, and I can deal, I replied with a smile. And there we were the next morning, rounding up gloves, hats, long-sleeve Tshirts and rubber boots. We loaded into the tiny wooden canoes, which are used to navigate the mangroves, and proceeded to learn the ins and outs of crabbing as Carlos paddled us to our destination. Now, you have to grab them here so that they dont get pinched, he explained to me, showing how to put their big front claw down and grab them correctly. I was getting a little nervous. ...continued page 96A CANGREJEAR LETS GO CRABBING!TRAVEL by Tara Tiedemann

34 Just behind the Palacio del Gobierno, in Guatemala Citys zone 1, on 5a calle at the corner of 5a avenida, art meets literature under the roof of a cultural center that promotes fair trade, as well as a more inclusive and sustainable economy for Gua temalan society. Since opening in 2004 in a beautiful colonial building, La Casa de Cervantes has expanded to include a bookshop, cof fee shop and fair-trade boutique. Its a great place for social and cultural events or just to enjoy a great cup of (fair-trade) coee. Activities and services that take place in La Casa de Cervantes are conducted under the same philosophy of solidarity. All the products that are served here respect fairtrade principles, and a portion of proceeds from all exhibitions and events go to the center to help fulll its mission: To be an ideal meeting place for cul tural expression and for the improvement of quality of life in our society. La Casa de Cervantes works in partner ship with the Comisin Interinstitucional de Comercio Justo y Solidario de Guatema la to achieve greater public awareness about an economy that values and respects the work and the rights of artisans.

44 HE A LT H SER VICES HE A LT H SER VICES Usually dry and devitalized skin in ages 20s to 40s is just a temporary problem, caused by environmental factors, the use of harsh soaps, bad eating and lack of nutrients. Dry and devitalized skin tends to aect males and females equally. e elderly, however, are more prone to dry-devitalized skin in a permanent way, and thats because the skin is composed of fat (lipid), protein (collagen) and water and this is when time diminishes the production of these important components in charge of maintaining the integrity of the skins structure. DRY SKIN Symptoms: Dehydrated and Shrunken skin Feels rough rather than smooth Slight to severe itching and scaling Fine lines or cracks FIND THE PERFECT SOLUTION First you need to provide your skin with immediate nourishment and then rebuild its natural hydrolipidic lm (lipid + water).

58 Admiring the majestic beauty of the volcanoes surrounding La Antigua Guatemala is one activity that is enjoyed by everyone. Never did I think that it would be raging such havoc on hair! After a few months of living here I began to notice a change in my hair; at rst I thought it was just that my shampoo wasnt working as well. I decided to switch and for a while it seemed better, but soon after that sticky feeling returned. Also, it never seemed to feel clean; it looked dull and felt dry and brittle. I then began noticing that my clients, who have been living here long term, also had this weird feeling in their hair. Everyone was asking the same question: Why does my hair feel and look so bad? Well the answer was staring right at me, the volcanoes. ere are many minerals found in water, but in volcanic areas the sand-like mineral silica is widely distributed. Silica in combination with calcium and magnesium, which are both abundant in the soil, creates virtually insoluble deposits on the hair. You can think of your hair like a magnet your hair has an electrical charge that is negative and when it comes in contact with minerals that are positively charged, they attach. To make matters worse, once these minerals attach to your hair, oil, grease and dirt then adhere, making your hair even more unmanageable. ese minerals build up over time during normal hair washing, creating what is typically referred to as mineral scale, hich is pretty much like how it sounds. Imagine a layer of hard sh scales covering your hair and making it dicult for even conditioners to penetrate. Your hair is left dry, brittle, dull and lifeless. is buildup can even block the hair follicle and cause hair loss. If you notice these symptoms with your hair, the most important thing to do is remove the minerals. As specialized hair care products can be dicult to nd, the option for mineral removal that I most often recommend is a vinegar rinse. You can easily add this into your hair-care regimen by following these simple steps: H EA LT H by Melissa Wood ...continued page 68

60 Sacred A nimals and E xotic T ropical Plantsby Dr. Nicholas M. Hellmuth and Daniela DaCosta Franco, FLAAR ReportsOne of the tree fruits raised by the Maya long ago that is still enjoyed today is the zapote. Although there are several fruits of the same name, the popular nomenclature is pure chaos. Some of the zapote fruits belong to the sapotaceae family and all are native to Mesoamerica. But other botanically unrelated fruits are also called zapote/sapote; some are barely edible (such as the zapotn). ere are probably even other zapote-named fruits that are not all native to Mesoamerica. Most zapotes have a soft fruit inside and a zapote brown covering outside (except for a few that have other external colors). It is typical for Spanish nomenclature of fruits and owers to be totally confusing. Zapote is a vestige of the Nahuatl (Aztec) word tzapotl. e rst plant on our list, Manilkara zapote, is commonly named chicozapote. is is one of the most appreciated edible species because of its commercial value. It is distributed from the southeast of Mexico, especially the Yucatn Peninsula into Belize e popular name represents many diverse edible fruits of GuatemalaZAPOTE:

Another important attribute is its medicinal properties, said to alleviate dysentery and diarrhea. You can see several types of zapote fruit trees at Frutas del Mundo, a remarkable orchard of diversity organized by Dwight Carter. You can visit Frutas del Mundo in nearby villages by contacting Kevin Lock, a popular guide in the Ro Dulce area. One of FLAARs principal interests is nutrition in Guatemala. is is why we are now collecting pertinent information related to the eating habits of Maya people, and all the plants they used and how they used them for food. We do not intend to commercialize these plants ourselves. FLAAR Mesoamerica, just like other NGOs and government programs, is aware of the nutritional problem Guatemala faces and our intention is to help by teaching people which plants to reintroduce into their house-side gardens and which fruits to provide to their children. To familiarize yourself with images of the dierent zapote fruits, you can also peruse the full-color photographic essays on various tropical Maya fruits and vegetables and nuts on our www.maya-ethnobotany.org.

64 seek to enhance and enliven the water that we drink. At our o-grid retreat center at Lake Atitln, we have done what many say was impossible. We have created healthy, happy and extremely clean water! We have done so without using any precious resources and zero electricity. We are able to duplicate this process and share it with all who like to learn more. Dr. Emoto demonstrated that ordinary tap water will lose its memory quickly. He suggests that each glass of water we drink be blessedlike praying before a meal. As we hold in our consciousness the energy of gratitude and love we emanate an energy that will be reected in the waters molecular structure. Perhaps the tradition of praying before a meal is based upon the wisdom that the water held in our foods will shift into a life-enhancing force. Clean water is a gift. Gratitude is a healing energy. For now, we suggest that you take a moment o the grid before gulping down that next glass of water and simply hold a sense of appreciation for the life-restorative property that water represents. Water is essential and our sincere gratitude helps us stay in a healthy relationship with the gift of life. And while you are here in Guatemala, oer thanks to a precious resource that is asking for our help worldwide. e stunning photographs captured by Dr. Emoto demonstrate visually the power that love, gratitude and spiritual blessings have on water. (Notice in the photograph the dierence in the molecules based upon the energy given to the water.) He recently shared: Since the water reects the composite energy of what is being sent to it, the crystalline structure reects the composite vibrations of the group. In one of our experiments, we had some water on a table, and 17 participants all stood in a circle around a table holding hands. en each of the participants spoke a beautiful word of their choice to the water. Words like unity, love and friendship. We took before-andafter shots (of the water) and were able to obtain some beautiful crystalline structures as a result of this. Intuitively, it just makes sense that water clusters that result from positive energy will have a health-giving eect on the human body while water with toxic impressions will stress the body. Here in Guatemala, while we may have water as an asset, it is what the water experiences that actually determines the vitality we ingest into our body. Universally needed for all life on this planet, water is vital to your health and wellbeing. And now that you know that water retains impressions, it is important that weO ff the G rid cont. from page 18

No animal he could imagine could have a tooth that big. He took the object to municipal authorities who, unsurprisingly, paid little interest. But, as fate would have it, the secretary at the mayors oce was aware of some Canadian archaeologists working in the area and sent Octavio in their direction. Upon seeing the huge molar, the Canadians dropped what they were doing and accompanied Alvarado back to Chivacab. Over the next few days numerous other mega-faunal remains were uncovered. e archaeologists explained to Alvarado that what he had found was the grave of a kind of huge, extinct elephant, cuviers gomphothere. ese huge mammals, three meters in height, looked like modern elephants, except for their spiral-shaped tusks.

According to the Instituto Nacional de Sismologa, Vulcanologa, Meterologa e Hidrologa de Guatemala (INSIVUE MEH), the cancula represents hotter days with little or no rain and drier winds. We think of the cancula lasting from four to seven weeks at the end of July and begin ning of August coinciding in Antigua for the patron saints estas for St. James (San tiago) on July 25. e weather has been linked to astrono my. e word cancula comes from can or dog.

Dog days (Latin: di s canicul r s ) are the hottest days of summer. e name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, in close proximity to the sun, was respon sible for the hot weather.

Answer: e No. 1 human medication that poisons pets is common in every householdnon-steroidal anti-inammatories, which include ibuprofen (e.g., Advil and some types of Motrin) and naproxen (e.g., Aleve). While these medications are safe for people, even one or two pills can cause serious stomach and intestinal ulcers, as well as kidney failure, in dogs, cat, birds, ferrets and hamsters. Cats are especially sensitive to acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol). One regularstrength tablet can damage the cats red blood cells and limit the cells ability to carry oxygen. In dogs, acetaminophen can lead to liver failure and, in large doses, red blood cell damage. Antidepressants (like Eexor, Cymbalta, Prozac, Lexapro) are occasionally used in pets, but in human doses can lead to serious neurological problems such as sedation, tremors and seizures. Some antidepressants also have a stimulant eect, leading to a dangerously elevated heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature. Pets, especially cats, seem to enjoy the taste of Eexor and often eat the entire pill. Unfortunately, just one pill can cause serious poisoning.

82 Since 2008, anyone in Guatemala connected to the utility grid can become an autoproductor by gen erating their own electricity and injecting the surplus into the grid. e framework for this process was put into action by the CNEE (Comite Nacio nal de Energia Electrica), which released the standards for self-producing energy. Managing an isolated battery-based pow er system isnt required, as one is connect ed and stays connected to the gridwith the convenience of an unlimited power supply. To become an autoproductor, you need an electric generator. I recommend the grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) systems with a bi-directional energy counter installed. It looks just like any other meter but the dif ference is that it will count backward the moment you inject electricity into the grid. Eliminating costly electrical bills, partially or all together, has now become a reality. Going Solar in GuatemalaAnd paying less to the electric companyENERGY by Ing. Markus von Dohlen www.guatemala-solar.com

PAGE 85

83ere are only three key components of PV Grid Tied System: solar panels, a grid-tie inverter and bi-directional energy coun terthats it! e electric energy produced by the so lar panels is converted to grid-compatible power by the inverter and fed into the grid via the bi-directional meter. At the end of each month the numbers on your bi-direc tional meter show the balance, and this is what you pay the electric company. Apart from an occasional rinse and a yearly inspection for corrosion, there is no main tenance. e system works completely by itself; there are no serviceable components like batteries or generators. e only exercise recommended is to go out on a sunny morning, watch your meter run backward and smile. Solar panels are normally guaranteed for 25 years and expected to last for 35 to 40 years. Inverters are guaranteed for 10 to 25 years, so the key components will far out last the payback time. You can simply say its a life-time investment. And the payback is relatively short. Because of the high cost of electricity, the price for one kWh of electric energy is $32 (USD) for the average home, so a standard system will pay for itself in less than seven years. Even without governmental incentives, a return on investment of 15 to 16%. Lodging A N TIG UALodging A N TIG UA

86 EL SALVADOR GETAWAYTermales de Santa TeresaJust minutes from Ahuachapan in western El Salvador, right across the border from Guatemala, lie the amazing thermal waters and spa of Santa Teresa. Named after the farm of the same name, the hotel and soon-to-be restaurant are clustered around a series of thermal pools with temperatures ranging from lukewarm to tingling hot. Several cabins are located around the pools, all with amazing, forest-shrouded views toward the valley. If you are not spending the night but just come for the day, you can get a day pass to enjoy the pools. Other activities to enjoy at Santa Teresa are hiking around at the farm and visiting the several hot springs found there. e Santa Teresa geyser is over 5,000 years old and is the largest geyser in Central America. All the coee produced here is organic and considered to be some of the best coffee in El Salvador; it has won awards at the cup of excellence competitions for years and is certied by the Rainforest Alliance. Japan and Sweden are among countries where this coee is exported. You can enjoy the delicious coee and visit the farm to see where its produced. After the hiking and exploring the reward is to sink into the pool with the warm thermal water and enjoy the relaxing, invigorating and rejuvenating eects it has on your body. e mineral and geothermic components in the water are the secrets behind the health benets visitors obtain from these baths. We are assured that we will feel ve years younger and sleep like a baby after visiting the thermal waters. If you are in Guatemala, its just a twohour ride. Cross the border at Chinamas and then its a short ride from Ahuachapan, just one kilometer on the road toward Ataco. On the Ruta de Las Flores its downhill from Ataco on the right, take the turno to Canton El Barro. For more information visit www.termalesdesantateresa.com T R AV EL text/photos by Lena Johannessen

90 S ensuous Guatemala by Ken Veronda ASHAppreciating ash requires more sensitivity than enjoying most of Guatemalas dazzling colors. Steel-gray, dull, plain old ash seems uninteresting. Worse, read in your novel that his face turned ashen, and you know theres big trouble ahead. Cleaning up ash from oors and furni ture isnt much fun after breezes sift some of the volcanos recent burps indoors. Ash gets even more serious when it drifts along the airport runway, stopping big jets for fear of engine damage. After the last few belches of volcanic ash, I swept o the terrazzo and poured the dustpan-full into a glass jar. Hey, its not just one shade! e sweepings were layered, charcoal to sand, some specks shiny, some at discs. Like snowakes, these new arriv als from the inner Earth were all dierent. Ash-gray tones around town are all dif ferent, too. Take the colonial cobblestones, which of course are just ash thats been so lidied through eons of pressure. ere are at least 20 dierent grays in the street just outside our portn I counted that many as a street painter was nishing a watercolor of our block. He smiled and commented how getting the dierent gris street shades just right was the toughest part of this streetscape. Mira , and he pointed along our drive way, recently paved with interlocking con crete blocks. Todo diferente and the var ied ash colors were clearly dierent. Look around town for yourself and see how varied Guatemalan volcanic ash can be. And be grateful you dont have to paint all the shadings. Just enjoy them. Cenizas (: rf .)

92 turned our way. For the most part locals in the mountains, in Santa Catarina Ixtahuacn and Xiprin, as well as other spots along the way that dont appear on most maps, were friendly passers-by, willing (sometimes for a fee) to be photography subjects. Every person was a point of interest. e greatest battle on this trek was the hike itself, mainly inclines and descents that are not to be scoed at nor ignored. With a full pack on your back the slopes will quickly wear down your strength and your will, and thats just on Day 1. Luckily, every thin path, every rutted trail and every road led to new adventure, new excitement, and some of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen in my life that often ebbed and owed with the ever-changing clouds. Quetzaltrekkers cont. from page 17 A farmer reposes outside of Santa Catarina Ixtahuacn ( n/bbb.bb..r)me think it would be fun to pull over and climb to the top of that right now. From chicken buses and microbuses, though, I never had a good chance to glance at the mountain tops en route to Quetzaltenango. I was perpetually bracing myself for corners rather than enjoying the view. So it was that I never suspected that I would nd myself climbing these towering mountains, nor did I ever expect that as I started along a trail I would know that the villagers on our route had once upon a time raised their machetes in fear at the sight of approaching hikers who arrived too close on the heels of guerillas soon after the armistice. ankfully, no hands or weapons were raised against my group on our hikeit certainly seems like an occurrence of the past, as sometimes not even an interested eye...continued page 100

96 Pacic Coast / LAS LISAS We arrived at the secret crabbing hot spot and hopped out of the boat onto a muddy trail, which luckily still existed due to low tide. en we grabbed our bags and headed out. Just walking was dicult as my rubber boats were about two sizes too big and I was sliding around in them and getting sucked into the mud, trying to watch out for mangrove roots along the way. Suddenly, Carlos was o and running and I saw it: a big purple crab on the muddy surface. Before that crab knew what hit him, Carlos grabbed it (using proper technique, I might add) and had it in the bag. Wowthats it? My only challenge in this whole affair was the running. Since my boots were huge, picking up speed through the mud and muck was dicult. Suddenly, it was my turn. Carlos started yelling and pointing for me to go for one that he had spotted close by. As I ran over to it, the crab started waving its claws at me, threatening a mighty pinch should I make a mistake grabbing it. Trying not to get pinched! ...continued page 98CR A BB I NG cont. from page 20

I think I let out a little yelp as I quickly made the grab, heart pounding with excitement. Yes, I did it! I had him! Into the bag he went. Now, where do I nd more? Adrenaline was coursing through my veins and I was ready to ll my bag with these tasty little crustaceans. After two hours we each proceeded to make a nice haul, Carlos, of course, catching far more than me because of speed and experience, but I didnt do too poorly. Soon I noticed that what had once been mud where we were standing now looked a river thick with mangroves. e tide was coming in and I couldnt see the groundtime to get out. ankfully I was with a local like Carlos because those mangroves are a maze and it would have been easy to get lost. However, we made it out and rinsed the mud o our crabs, got them in the boat and were heading back home to boil up some lunch.

A short time later we were perched on a mirador over Lake Atitln waiting for the sun, and I knew it was worth it. I was far more excited to have come that far than to be so close to the end. As the group relaxed and took in a fantastic sunrise over the lake, watching the clouds ripple below us, I knew I would happily do it all over againjust without the extra weight of the tripod and camera gear. Besides, now that movie has already been made. You can see parts of the hike and nd out why the Quetzaltrekkers do what they do in Why We Hikeat whywehike.actualitymedia.org.
