Although some scientists/ zoologists have been able to keep the shell of a quetzal in a cage and have even managed to reproduce the quetzal in captivity, they are only shadows of themselves. Quetzals live in the cloud forests, to see one in free ight is to experience its magical presence as it soars, plumes ashing against the sky. eir symbol, their credo is a life of liberty; the Quetzal, the National Bird of Guatemala, long may they soar. SOME YEARS AGO... I was taking some photos of insects in the Biotopo del Quetzal when a man with his two young daughters came by. I noticed that the two girls were watching me attentively. Finally, the girls walked over to me and asked: Are you or Janson? I answered in the armative. en the girls told me that they had my book on the quetzal and that they both liked it very much. e younger of the two announced that her name was Luca and that she had a question for me: Is it true that the quetzal cannot live in captivity... ?An ark of green re in sun An emerald meteor in mist A cold viridian ame in rain moved the Quetzal.e Symbol of Libertye most spectacular bird of the Western Hemisphere.

Guatemalas premier Mayan cultural event, the Rabin Ajau illuminated the night with beauty and grace on July 28 in the Imperial City of Cobn, Alta Verapaz. One hundred young Maya girls from all over the country participated in the competition and the election of the new Rabin Ajau, the Daughter of the King. Each participant wore gorgeous ceremonial costumes and each had the chance to display knowledge of her indigenous culture and language. e event is a beauty contest with its main focus on intelligence and authenticity. Some have criticized the fact that the competition goes on too long. I disagree. My experience after attending the event on three occasions is that part of the magic comes from the fact that it lasts into the wee hours of the morning. ...continued page 72CULTURE text/photos by Captain or Janson www.facebook.com/NUBLISELVARabin Ajau Update100 Mayan Princesses converged upon the imperial city of Cobn with the hopes of becoming the next Daughter of the King 2012 winner Lidia Dominga Canto Camaj from Santa Mara Cunn and (right) another contestant16

18 The new nation of Timor Leste has yet to choose its national bird. For the moment, though, a chicken appears both on a coin and on postage stamps. is might not be as bad of a choice as it initially appears. Chickens, considered objectively, are resplendent things. Colonel Sanders would never have been interested in any of our local national birds. ey grow slowly and likely have a taste that is more foul than fowl. Some of them steal and/ or eat carrion. ese are not exactly things you associate with nger-lickin good. Electing a national bird should not be done lightly. When I note the choices made by national bird choosers (whom I will call NBCs) of the ve countries I know best, I wonder what message they meant to send to their compatriates, and to the rest of us. And I wonder how coincidentally these birds reect the character of the countries they are drafted to represent. My rst exposure to national birdism was the identity of my ownthe bald eagle. Much more is known today about H. leucocephalus than was known in the day of its election. is raptor gets much, and in some cases most, of its vittles by bullying lesser raptors and, yes, by scavenging. (Maybe Ben Franklin was on to this when he vetted the turkey for the honor.) e bald eagle was an intentional, and predictative, projection of world-power status. e founders of the United States preached egalitarianism at home, but they aspired to ...cont. page 52Birds of a Feather?COMMENTARY by Dwight Wayne CoopWhat does the choice ofa national bird tell us?

17IN THE BEGINNING, THE EARTH WE KNOW slept under watery darkness, like the view before dawn from the island of Flores. Standing on the balcony of my hotel, I saw the Petn sky rippling down to the horizon on all sides. e lake slept, however, unmoving as the rmament. Still lake, rippling sky. is brought a feeling of standing on ones head, or reeling. When Corts came upon Lake Petn Itz in 1525, he thought he had reached the sea. e waters can still appear rimless at times, especially in the dark. e hieroglyph for island, pet, is a circle with a small circle at its very center. Add a ourish to its side and the glyph reads Pe tn, the old name of the island, which gave its name in turn to the entire rainforest region. e island and its people, encircled by their sea, remained sovereign until the eve of our eighteenth century, the last independent Maya kingdom. Imagine. As Samuel Pepys tracked the ow of a recognizably modern London, a Maya king in Petn kept track of a trade network, with rest houses, that spanned hundreds of square miles. He compared obsidian prices from suppliers and maintained cacao plantations where the Ro Dulce meets the Caribbean Sea. He danced before his people wearing jaguar hides, shells, and feathers until he entered a trance, crossing over for a while to the Underworld, then dancing himself back again... Later that day, at Tikal, I looked for a certain calendar keeper, and found him walking a trail in a grove beyond the Temple of the Great Jaguar. I took o my sunglasses so he could see my eyes. Good morning, I said. Good morning. Don Gilberto? ere is not yet one person, one animal, bird, sh, crab, tree, rock, hollow, canyon, meadow, forest. Only the sky alone is there. .

18 RIOS Guatemala is the result of the passion for paddling, the love of nature and the need to preserve at least one river in Guatemala. e push to create RIOS Guatemala came most recently from an expedition to paddle and lm the countrys endangered rivers (details of the documentary screening are at the end of this article), but the story began 30 years ago. River rafting was expanded in Guatemala in the early 1980s by Tammy Ridenour and together with Ramiro Tejada, who established the company Maya Expeditions. ey were drawn to the wild pristine rivers and to the thrill of taking domestic and international tourists out to discover and explore the treasures hidden in the jungle canyons. In 1993 another company, Area Verde RIOS GuatemalaR: Recreation I: Investigation O: Orientation S: Sustainability

19 Expeditions, led by American Paul Heesaker, joined in with a similar dream to raise awareness and create an organization that would provide opportunities, fun and great whitewater adventures. In 1998, due to security warnings and a historic drought, Area Verde had to close down. In 1998 a 14-year-old named Max Baldetty went on his rst rafting trip, hoping to discover a purpose in life, and found himself working as a guides assistantinating rafts, ltering water and doing whatever needed to be done to have things set for a sweet multiday rafting trip down the Cahabnand he lived it like it was his last day. As the years passed, this young Guatemalan grew up to become a full-edged rafting guide, and for his 18th birthday he was presented with his rst paid trip. At this point he also began his university studies in marine science and aquaculture and worked as a guide to pay for his education. Eventually, he was aorded opportunities to work the rivers in France, Spain and Turkey. He also found a book titled How to Save a River by David M. Bolling and felt like something was calling him home. Fourteen years later after closing Area Verde Expeditions, Paul Heesaker again decided to pack his duel bag, y to Guatemala to make the lm RIOS Guatemala and meet Max, now 28. ey discovered that they both have a dream to run whitewater, to create a base camp, to raise awareness of the beautiful rivers, to create opportunities for the communities to live from the river but to protect the river, and to take people down the river and share the river. After getting Greg Schwendinger of La Antigua Guatemala-based MayanWhiteWater.com involved, other contacts were made, and a plan evolved to explore the remote Ro 2012 expedition group on the ro Cahabn (Alta Verapaz), photo: Luis Enrique Lopez Argueta ...continued page 80

20 by Sri Ram Kaa & Kira RaaOff the GRID Keys to a Vibrant Life!Optimum hydration is essential for good skin tone and a healthy metabolism. Water clears toxins from our bodies and carries nutrients to our cells. Water is a solvent and can carry both healthy and unhealthy substances. Municipal water systems worldwide provide water; however, is it healthy? Sadly, many are not. Most municipalities use chlorine to kill bacteria in the water, but chlorine is not healthy for your body. Trihalomethanes are one of the toxic carcinogens created when chlorine reacts with organic matter in water. Even in small amounts they are carcinogenic and are associated with birth defects. It is a sign of the times to see people traveling worldwide with bottles of puried water. Bottled water is a growth industry and oers a positive step toward health. Most people do not realize that not all bottled water is created equal. A 2008 study* in the United States tested 10 popular brands of bottled water, purchased from grocery stores in nine states, and discovered they contained 38 chemical pollutants, with an average of eight contaminants in each brand! is is because there is no requirement that bottled water providers disclose their laboratory test results. e eects of drinking contaminated water are cumulative and can result in health challenges. It is necessary that we educate ourselves. Having studied water purication for a decade, we have learned how to economically provide healthy water for our home and our clients. e key to vibrant health is not to compromise on water quality. Water must be both puried for biological contaminants and ltered to remove chemical contaminates. One step without the other does not provide full benet. At TOSA La Laguna, we use both ozone and high-intensity UV light ...cont. page 68 Keys to a Vibrant Life!Vibrant running water ( : ) www.LakeAtitlanSpa.com email: oce@tosaspa.com

Do you ever notice that traveling throughout Guatemala feels as if you are visiting a variety of dierent countries? e terrain, the language, the climate and the culture can change so rapidly that its incredible to believe that all of these micro-communities and regions make up the one beautiful country we know as Guatemala. Let me introduce you to another country within the borders of our beloved Guatemala, the Caribbean-infused Livingston, home of the Garifuna people. Delight in the ocean breeze while swinging in a hammock at one of the quaint hotels, and be sure to sample the local delicacies after a day of exploring a number of fascinating attractions in the area. Located on the far eastern edge of Guatemala, Livingston is just a boat ride away from Belize and Honduras. From Guatemala City, it is easily reached via the Litegua buses, which leave throughout the day and can drop you o in Puerto Barrios. At Q85 one way and a six-hour ride in a comfortable, airconditioned bus, a trip to Livingston and the Ro Dulce area can make for a nice fourto ve-day getaway. Once in Puerto Barrios, hop a lancha (small boat) to Livingston and get ready to melt into the relaxed Caribbean vibe. Livingstons population consists mostly of the Garifuna, descendants of Africans who were brought to the New World as slaves. eir roots trace back to the island of Roatan, Honduras, and they currently live along the Caribbean coast from Belize to Nicaragua. ey have ...continued page 86Coconut Bread Dreams and Caribbean WishesTRAVEL text/photos by Tara TiedemannA trip to Livingston and the Ro Dulce area can make for a nice fourto ve-day getaway.

38 by Dr. Alejandro PaizMENTAL HEALTH The waters of Lake Atitln have a sedative force when you observe them, especially with the typical spectacular sunsets as a backdrop. Until recently, this was the only balm available for the poorest of the mentally ill in the Atitln Basin. e beauty of the region hails from its unique topography, an irregularity that, while lovely, magnies the onslaught of nature. In 2002, investigators from Brown University, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and Guatemalas Health Ministry conducted a studypsychosis in an indigenous communityin Santiago Atitln; in it, they tried to conceptualize local psychosis and evidence the presence of these disorders. After studying the results, the Guatemalan government oered clinical attention to all the patients indexed in the study. However, owing to lack of resources dedicated to mental health, the treatment did not start at that timeto the detriment of 40 unattended schizophrenics. In 2005, Hurricane Stan scourged Guatemala. One of the most aected places was Santiago Atitln, which suered massive landslides and oods that killed entire families and left communities bereft of basic services. Soon after Stan, the Health Ministry sent human relief teams, including psychologists and psychiatrists, to help local leaders to cope with the devastation. is was the start of the municipal disaster network and a mental health network directed by Dr. Juan Chumil Cuc, district health director. He saw anxiety and emotional suering on equal with physical and social suering and decided to rank mental health as the districts second priority (in contrast to the rest of the country, where its designated second to last of the almost 20 health priorities). is decision brought attention to Lake Atitln, and the Health Ministry in cooperation of PAHO began eorts to support this network and initiate clinical attention. In November 2008, the ministrys mental health program and PAHO were able to place a psychiatrist to work for the region, and Solols mental health department started. is department assists in two fashions: hospital attention and a community program. e National Hospital of Solol now boasts a mental health outpatient clinic, offering psychiatric and psychological attention as well as liaison psychiatry, a childrens program and training ...continued page 82 Trauma In Paradise38

39 by Lori Shea HEALTHY SOLUTIONS D. S O, D.D.S.In recent years, Guatemala has become known as a rst-class destination for those seeking high-quality, aordable dental care. In North America and Europe, families are concerned with the high cost of dental procedures. anks to instantly accessible internet resources, they can save thousands of dollars by taking advantage of medical and dental options in Central America. Joy and Don were facing some routine dental procedures that would have been terribly expensive back home in Indiana. ey began searching the internet for a more economical solution for their treatment plan, without sacricing high-quality materials and personal care. ey consulted with medical agents in several countries before determining that Guatemala was their best choice. Together with the kids and their grandpa, they ew to Guatemala, knowing that they had dental appointments and all the surrounding details set up for them in advance. Having an indulgent spa-dental vacation, without the children, was Lilahs preference of a treatment plan. She was able to enjoy massages and shopping in between root canals and lab work delivery. Within seven days, the pain was gone, her smile was glowing and her suitcase was stued with textiles and souvenirs for her family and friends. e entire budget was still $3,000 less than what her hometown dentist had estimated. On the other side of the world, John is a civil engineer who has been working with the U.S. government in Afghanistan for 15 years. John had wanted dental implants for a few years, but the cost was out of reach, plus he would need several other costly dental treatments to maintain his long-term dental health. When it took him 10 days to get to Dubai for an emergency dental infection, John knew he needed to get all of his dental work done both quickly and economically. Excellent service, sensible prices and the opportunity to recover in an attractive tourist destination like Guatemala was exactly what he was looking for. ...continued page 76 Lori Shea is the founder of Guatemala Medical Travel (www.GuatemalaMedicalTravel.com); you can contact her directly: lori@guatemalamedicaltravel.com Dr. Oliva and Lilahs new smile SMILEDental Care in Guatemala 39

52 themselves, are shyer than their counterparts elsewhere. Honduras national bird is so familiar that it is at risk of falling into chickenesque disdain. at would be the scarlet macaw, known locally as the guacamaya. Of the ve national symbols I am surveying, it is unquestionably the most intelligent, the most domesticated, the poorest yer, the only vegetarian, and a bird that actually eats clay. ey are almost as easy to catch as they are to spot; consequently few, if any, remain in the wild. Try bagging a bald eagle in a burlap sack sometime. Guacamayas can, of course, talk or mimic. I am looking for the one who can conrm, in plain English, what I imagine is its own self-image. Maybe it would go like this: Im too clumsy to hunt, so Ill settle for fruit. Im too pretty and too slow not to be caught, so why ght it? And Im smart enough to talk and to take mineral supplements (clay). So Ill surrender to the domesticity of pampered patio living. Im better than any cat. All this may have gone to the guacamayas head. My Dad and I once encountered one in the lobby of La Antiguas Posada de Don Rodrigo. It looked directly at us and garbled contemptuously. Dad replied, Same to you, rude bastard! But I remain an admirer. I do not know what the guacamayas status says about Honduras, other than that Honduran NBCs made a practical choice. Unlike the elusive quetzal, no one has not seen a guacamaya. eir utility as a patriotic reminder is therefore limitless. ...cont. page 100eagle-itarianism toward the powers of that day, all of whom were in Europe. e message here was watch us! e caracara, another scavenging (and bullying) raptor, was chosen by Mexican NBCs. Central Americans bless this choice, since Mexico once had imperial ambitions in the subcontinent, and even today Mexico exercises enormous cultural hegemony over the region. And yet the caracara looks so unlike the bird immortalized on the Mexican ag that even some zookeepers in the Hispanic world do not know that it is a symbol of the largest entity in that world. Ironically, caracaras are stock tenants in zoos. is much may never be true of Guatemalas quetzal. One morning in 1988, while in transit to the Aurora Park Zoo for the rst time, I was thrilled over my expected encounter, in the feather, with a live quetzal; but none was there. Ornithologists debate whether the quetzal can survive in captivity. Some say no; others suggest that, were a large enough aviary in existence, it could.

53 Its woad. Whats woad? Well get to that, but woad is all over Guatemala, especially this month of deep blue skies with puy white clouds, and of deep blue and white ags uttering to celebrate independence. Woads around in the Highlands, both in some blouses and skirts of indigenous weavers, and in farm patches where its more of a noxious weed, left over from its importance as a dye. Classic Maya painted Maya Blue with ground azurite, a copper ore; and with ground lapis lazuli. Both were rare minerals, so blue coloring was reserved for royalty, as in Egypt, Europe, and most of the ancient world. en from Asia Minor came woad, a scraggy green-leafed plant, and someone in Europewonder who was the rst to think of this?soaked woad leaves in human urine for several days, then soaked cloth in the same broth, and the threads turned deep blue. An instant and lucrative industry arose in France, England, and Spain, dying with woad, then called pasteland urine, that passed by inebriated males considered the best. European colonists started woad production on Caribbean islands and the Central American mainland. Quickly enough Guatemalan weavers learned how to dye blue with woad, with assistance from partying males around the village. Woads coloring property is indigo, and when Asia Minor began exporting another plant richer in blue and easier to use, European powers did their best to block this new indigo in order to protect the thriving woad industry. Didnt workindigo (called ail and grown around Central America), won the war against woad, and soon enough indigo too was replaced by synthetic dyes coming out of Germany in the late 1870s. So call it woad, call it indigo, or ail, call it deep blue, its the clear sky blue, ocean blue, police and military uniform blue. With white, its the ag of Guatemala and of ten other countries. (Can you name them?I looked them up for you: Argentina, Finland, Greece, Israel, Micronesia, Scotland, Somalia, and our good neighbors, parts of the short-lived Central American Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua.) e United Nations uses a slightly lighter shade of blue, more like the old pastel woad. And if the idea of blue cloth soaked for days in a drunks urine bothers you, consider the historic red dye for tricolor ags. at color came from squashed parasitic insects, bugs often produced in La Antigua, Guatemala.

I wanted his thoughts on the end of the Long Count calendar, which began 5,123 years ago, and ends December 21, 2012. e rain ebbed, trees taking on their palette of greens once more, moist and fresh. Many think there will be world war, or that the world will disappear at the end of the long calendar, he said. But his view was more complex, even puzzling. e earth will not bear the cold. We are going to suer more heat than now. How can that be? I asked. Heat and cold? e sun and moon will come in contact with the surface of the earth, he said. We must see how the earth handles the lowering of the sun and the moon, the being out of balance. We kill the earth and each other. We have become excessive. We have to revive what we have been killing, he said. If not, everything is smashed. I felt a chill despite the muggy air. Until now, everything I had read about the 2012 date spoke of astronomical phenomena, or of one mythological cycle ending and another beginning, like an odometer turning over. I asked him if feeling this way, knowing these things, did not make him fearful. e answer was no. Fear humiliates us, Don Gilberto said. We can die thinking of it... ...next pageYes, I am, he said. He wore a T-shirt bearing the logo of a defunct environmental organization, with a message that advised caution when using re. I am looking for you, I said. For a visit. Of course, he said, without surprise. Just as rain began to fall, we reached shelter under an overhang at his tin-roof house. He brought plastic chairs, and we sat silently for awhile. e rain created a gray-green scrim between us and the forest. I would like to know where to go on the equinox, I said. Don Gilberto drew from his pocket a datebook of the tzolkin, the 260-day calendar used by Maya spiritual guides. He showed me the glyphs for the current month and day. He placed the book on his lap and studied a page. Uaxactn, he said. Yes, to be present for sunrise on that day. Uaxactn is good because an old observatory is there? I asked. Uaxactn was the college, the house of studies when our ancestors studied the movement of the sun, he said. ey had to know the movements so they could nd the balance, to measure the time of planting, to measure time. He seemed to take my mulling for a struggle to understand. Balance, he said. You have to weigh yourself to get on a plane, dont you?

I pulled my nylon jacket tighter around me. But I felt satised, not wishing I were anywhere else on the planet but this crumbling stone palace, the observatory complex, Don Gilbertos college of the ancestors, where Maya learned to follow the stars, the beginning of timekeeping. We kept our eyes on the structures across the grassy plaza, waiting for light, just as the astronomer-priests once did from this point. Designed purposefully to show the solar journey, the three small temples were set upon a single stepped platform, each with its own dais, perfect in their symmetry, the middle one larger but otherwise a mirror of the other two, with rectangular throughways cut into their precise centers. is was architecture as observatory, observatory as architecture. On the autumnal equinox, less than an hour away, the sun was supposed to rise directly above the building in the middle, its roof now sprouting with bushes. Sensing the shapes of the stone structures in the dark rather than seeing them, I wondered at the marriage of science and grace. I felt close to fellow curious beings far in the past, who At 4 a.m. on the morning of the equinox, I walked to Uaxactn with Neria Herrera, proprietor of a former chicle gatherers outpost where I stayed after leaving Tikal. e roads of Petn can shine white at night for the color of their clay, providing their own illumination. I didnt need my new L.L. Bean campers ashlight after all. When we entered the forest, its canopy hid even starlight, but Neria knew the path. Soon the stone mountains, as the Maya saw them, the temples, loomed in the plaza. We made our way to the oldest of all, directly across from the three observatory structures. Ascending, I used my hands sometimes, feeling like the taquazin that famously scales the steep staircase of Tikals Jaguar Temple. Neria climbed more slowly. On the rst platform, I stood, shook my arms, and paused to look up the nal ight. ere at the top of the pyramid, like Lords of the Night, two gures waited. Neria reached the place I stood, and followed my eyes. Buenos das, she said weakly, although day was still far away. Buenos das, came the reply. We didnt think anyone was here, she said. We didnt think anyone else was coming, said a male voice. We climbed to sit below them. As often happens in Guatemala, Neria quickly discovered they were distantly related, throughMaya Roads cont. from page 58But I felt satised, not wishing I were any where else on the planet but this crumbling stone palace, the observatory complex.

64 Pitayas are one of the climbing cactaceas, named after its habit to use trees as a physical support. Pitaya (pitahaya) is a night-blooming epiphytic cactus, which is common throughout Guatemala and surrounding countries. Many hotels in La Antigua Guatemala and around Lake Atitln, El Remate and Tikal have pitaya and/or their relatives blooming over the summer. For example, hundreds of pitaya are in the ethnobotanical garden at the Hotel La Casa de Don David in El Remate. Pitaya produces a spectacular ower with an alluring fragrance and a fruit whose outside color is exceeded only by the absolutely unexpected symphony of pink and magenta color inside. e owers are mainly nocturnal; they open late in the day, when there is almost no sunlight, and remain open for the night, until the next morning when they close. ere are two varieties of ower; they can be a gorgeous full white bloom or an incredible dark red. I am sure that scores of gardens at the altitude of Guatemala City may be lled with successful pitaya, but not a single solitary one of my transplanted cuttings have grown more than a few centimeters in four years. Not all have died, just they stagnate.Dragon Fruit,the Nighttime FragranceSacred A nimals and E xotic T ropical P lantsby Dr. Nicholas M. Hellmuth, FLAAR Reports ...continued page 66( )

Alkaline water carries additional oxygen and thus oers an anti-oxidant benet and supports health in other ways. Just as the body regulates its temperature in a rigid manner, similarly it will preserve a very narrow pH range, especially in the blood. Whenever the blood strays from of a pH of 7.365 the body experiences stress as it seeks to restore the pH. Chronic acidity in the body will interrupt all cellular activities and functions; it interferes with life itself. While the human body can accommodate acidic foods, over a period of years it takes a toll. Signs that the pH of the body is chronically too acidic include low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion and chronic aches and pains. Acidic foods, such as sugars, alcohol and meats, all negatively aect blood chemistry. Most all fruits and vegetables oer an alkaline benet to the body. us, incorporating more vegetables into ones diet not only oers more vitamins, blood chemistry is supported. It is slowly becoming accepted that an alkalizing diet may have a positive impact on health and vitality.

72 e Rabin Ajau event provides the opportunity for girls from all over Guatemala, representing more than 20 tribal and linguistic groups, to come together in a spirit of peace and unity. Many of these girls live in the most humble of circumstances, in rustic earthen-oor cottages, living close to nature. en one day they are selected in their local competition to represent their region on the national level and, like Cinderellas, their dreams come true as they take part in the most magical cultural event of the entire Maya World. Just recently I became aware that in the U.S. there is an event called Miss Indian World where representatives of all the American tribal groups compete. We are going to be looking into the possibility of linking the Rabin Ajau with the sister event in the north. Guatemalas Rabin Ajau event continues to be one of the many littleknown cultural treasures, which deserves to be elevated to international status and offered to the world as an alternative to all the other beauty contest / bikini-fests. Events like our Rabin Ajau serve to elevate, inspire and encourage young indigenous girls to believe that everything is possible for those who work hard and persevere. It gives them an experience of living in peace, harmony and solidarity with girls from all the diverse Mayan tribes. e benets bestowed upon the reigning queen include a trip to the U.S. and participation in numerous local and international events. It also gives the young woman a platform to speak out about indigenous rights, social justice and defending Mother Earth. is is also in accord with indigenous celebrations and powwows everywhere, where all-night drumming and dancing are the norm. Plenty of coee and snacks are always at hand. e winner, Lidia Dominga Canto Camaj, a lovely girl from Santa Mara Cunn in the heart of the Quiche-Maya region, received her crown from the outgoing queen at about 1:30 a.m. to the unanimous applause of all in attendance.

La Gente de mi Ciudad features clay gures depicting 28 local residents, among them Jimmy McNutt (El Mstil), architect Jos Mara Magaa Jurez and myself. Quique explains that he taught himself how to work with clay at the age of 6. He begins with the clay from the traditional site of El Tejar, Chimaltenango, and molds ornate gures. After baking them in an oven, he paints them with bright acrylic paints. He began creating life-like, beautifully painted birds from Guatemala, which many of us collected over the years as Christmas tree ornaments and home decorations. Quique is also well known for renditions of famous gures such as Nobel Prize winners Rigoberta Mench and Miguel ngel Asturias and the Guatemalan artist/architect who designed the National eater, Efran Recinos. He has participated in forums and festivals in Germany, Spain, Italy, the United States and other countries, including the opening of Mundo Maya in the Dominican Republic in 2010. Quique also has a splendid exhibit of the works and life of Santo Hermano Pedro at the Obras Sociales del Hemano Pedro. His last exhibit in Antigua was in 1998.

Im afraid he is going to trip and hurt someone. How can I break him of this dangerous habit? Trying to break a dog from a habit usually involves scolding, shooing away, banishing or other unpleasantness. However, with a dog who wants attention, as yours seems to, this can backre because the punishment itself is attention. Up until know you have focused on trying to stop the behavior you dont like, but this approach hasnt worked. Try a dierent tactic: Decide on a behavior that you would prefer when people arrive, then train him using treats and positive attention as rewards. Teach the new behavior, such as sit or down, when there are no visitor distractions. If you give your dog a rug or dog bed to lie on, it will help him learn this. When he knows the new behavior, go outside momentarily, close the door, then re-enter the house. Tell your dog to do the new behavior and reward him with treats and attention. If he decides hed rather get underfoot, calmly step back outside and close the door. Wait 30 seconds and try again. When he accomplishes the new behavior, add other people to the situation. Each time your dog does the appropriate greeting behavior, reward him with petting, praise and yummy treats. If he reverts to getting underfoot, calmly leave and close the door. It may take several weeks, but the more consistent you are, the more quickly your dog will learn. When he consistently performs the new greeting behavior, wean him o the treats and use praise and attention as rewards.

Last year over 1,000 people were attended to, and Solols hospital became a Mental Health Regional Reference Center for patients from Quich, San Marcos, Quetzaltenango, Totonicapn, Huehuetenango, Chimaltenango and Suchitepquez. e commonest diagnoses were post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic attacks, depression, social phobia and psychosis. At the community level, actions are coordinated with Santiago Atitlns mental health network, with visits every ursday. e focus is prevention, de-stigmatization and sensibilization. Outpatient attention at the health center and home visits to the severely ill are other elements. Fifty-ve percent of the diagnoses are anxiety related, and PTSD is again the most prevalent disorder due, in general, to the lingering consequences of natural disaster and the long-ago concluded civil conict. e departmental strengths include support from the Solol health oce, the national hospital, the media and local authorities; the cooperation from PAHO and the private sector; and, in particular, Guatemalan family cohesion and care, which makes it easy to attend and follow severe patients.

84 Lago Petn ItzOrientation is an education process where we identify communities that impact the river directly and indirectly and guide them to using the land in a conservationist way where they can mutually benet from nature and bring education to the next generations. Sustainability happens when Recreation, Investigation and Orientation work together and the communities live from nature, take care of nature and work together to preserve the pristine rivers. What does RIOS Guatemala intend to do now after existing only as a dream? We want to build a base camp on the Cahabn River because its the most commercial river of Guatemala and it is a place where you can begin to work and have an immediate result but we believe this base camp can become a model to use all over the country anywhere where there is a river that could be used as a trip to take people to enjoy the jungle rivers. Why do we do it? Because the river has taught us that if there is a purpose in one drop of water to make a river ow, then we have to have a purpose in life. RIOS Guatemala, from a dream in the 90s in the heart of many who started rafting rivers, to a new generation willing to make the dream happen. e RIOS Guatemala lm will be screened in El Sitio Cultural Center, 5a calle Pte #15, Antigua, Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. It tells the story of a group of paddlers, conservationists and lmmakers who risked their lives to gain access to the endangered Ro Copn. Along the way, the audience is treated to astounding footage of six other jungle rivers as well as scenes of Guatemalas other natural and cultural attractions. e lm is in English, 43 minutes long, and a discussion will follow. A Q40 donation is requested. Drinks and snacks will be provided.

92 The Impsub is not a subsurface vessel manned by cheeky cherubs, but a tense separating men scholars from boys. I would know, since it long conned me among the latter; I still regress on occasion. e topic must be approached inductively and deductively. If you have been out of college long enough to forget what these are, a refresher (in the context of language study and this tense) follows. Deduction is (for us) the learning of rules that determine, say, how a verb will look when parsed in the ImpSub or another tense. Induction is (for us) the memorization of examples in action. In time, you begin to sense (and ultimately to use) a pattern. Induction is about listening, and then capturing through repetition. We will apply both induction and deduction to this topic. Verbs are in the subjunctive when unreal states are involved. I do not refer to the euphoria felt by Panajachel expats following an Elvis sighting or an alien abduction. Nor do I refer to the state of a dude I once met at Guajimbos who asserted that one could live for 50 years as a breatharian. No, the states in question are those the subjunctive expresses: desire, demand, emotion, uncertainty, doubt. In others words, whatever is not yet, or may never become, operative. e statement I wish you readers would also read my other column (Deseo que ustedes los lectores lean mi otra columna) expresses most of thesedesire that you do, emotion if you do not, uncertainty that you will, and doubt that your reading tastes are bad enough to bring the proposition from subjunctive to indicative. e reality, stated, would be: I know (S) that all you readers also read (reed not red) my other column. Knowing is reality, but just hoping is not quite. After I retire from writing columns, all this becomes past tense, and this is where the imperfect subjunctivethe obscurest and zenniest simple tensekicks in. en I say that I hoped that my readers read (red) my other column: Esperaba que mis lectores leyeran mi otra columna.

96 Pacic Coast / LAS LISAS e zenniness of this tense is twofold. It is named like the imperfect, but its conjugations resemble preterite forms. e other zenniness is that it has two sets of endings. is rst zenniness is something we must just live with, although it is counterintuitive. e case for calling the tense imperfect subjunctive rather than preterite subjunctive is that, usually, the actions described have an imperfect avor. But even when they do not, you still use this tense; it covers both imperfect (progressing or habitual) and perfected (nished or onetime) actions: Esperaba que Pepito leyera mi otra columna cada mes antes de tirar la revista en la chiminea. (I was hoping that Joey red my column each month before chucking the magazine into the replace). e good news is that ImpSub conjugation is easy, despite the two sets of endings. You may know that the stem is the thirdperson plural preterite form for every verb. ey are irregular only insofar as the preterite is irregular. You just add -ara or -iera (etc.), or -ese or -iese (etc.). ese mean exactly the same. (I will not reprint all the forms here; that is what textbook appendices are for.) For the record, I favor the -ara/iera forms. e others remind me of the pronoun se, which I could not fully unravel even in a long serial of columns (-38). OK, you have the deductive. Now, after outlining how this gun works, I urge you to do some practice shooting, that you may gain an inductive grasp. Memorize the following. Si yo fuera t, no hara eso. (If I were you, I wouldnt do that). Esperaba que tuvieran un beb sano (I was hoping yall had a healthy baby). La jueza dud que Pepito le contara la verdad (e judge doubted that Joey was telling her the truth). Crey que vea a Elvis in Tikal (He believed he saw Elvis in Tikal). Insista en que Pepito compartiera su colonia conmigo (I insisted that Joey share some of his cologne with me).
