8 by Elizabeth Bell /INTERVIEW In 2011, Guatemala was selected for a two-year, rotating term in the Security Council (Jan. 1, 2012 through Dec. 31, 2013). Guatemala was unanimously supported for this role, and many UN ofcials saw this as recognition of Ambassador Rosenthal as among the most respected diplomats at the UN. While Guatemala was a founding member state of the UN and has played an active role, it had not been a member of the Security Council because of the countrys turmoil during the 20th century. ese circumstances have changed with the peace process and democratization of the country. Guatemala is regaining prominence, making it possible to be elected as a member state of the Security Councila great new step for the country! An excellent choice to preside over the Security Council, Ambassador Rosenthal has had a long involvement in the UN. Some personal background notes include being born in Amsterdam in 1935he points out that his parents were making their way back from Germany to Guatemala, where his mother was born. His maternal grandfather had emigrated from the old country to Guatemala in 1891. Mr. Rosenthal, who entered government service in 1960 as a part-time economist at the National Planning Secretariat, has degrees in economics from the University of San Carlos in Guatemala, an MBA from the University of California at Berkeley and an honorary doctorate in social sciences from Universidad del Valle, Guatemala (1996). He has represented Guatemala in numerous national and international roles over the years, including serving as member of the Oversight Commission of the Guatemalan Peace Accords in 1998. He was appointed permanent representative of Guatemala to the UN in 1999, where he remained until 2004. In August 2006, President Oscar Berger appointed him minister of foreign aairs, a position where he remained until January 2008. In April 2008 he was re-appointed permanent representative of Guatemala to the UN. Ambassador Rosenthal recently gave us some insights about the Security Council. Here are highlights from the interview: ...continued page 64 Gert RosenthalGuatemalas ambassador to the United Nations this month assumes the presidency of the UN Security Council.

It is the only day of the year that animals are honored, blessed by the C atholic C hurch dur ing a special Mass, in the tradition of the patron saint of animals, St. Francis de A ssisi. This month we, too, celebrate animals, on the cover and inside the pages of this edition. To see so many homeless, starving, injured and sick animals on the streets, in the elds, on roofs gives rise to an opinion that Guatemalans dont care about the suering of animals. Perhaps many do not, but I believe that many more do care, deeply. Rescuing an animal is the easy part, and often that isnt so easy either. Then what? Paula found a starving dog in need of medical care which shes willing to pay for, but then what? Just the other day Kara rescued a starving and frightened dog she calls Madison. Shes leaving the country in week, then what for Madison? A woman called asking if she could bring us a puppy that shed rescued. I explained that we had no space for this little one. Her response was a constrained sobthen she said, thank you anyway. I won der what happened to this puppy, especially on cold, rainy nights. I f youre thinking this is a set up as a plea for help, youre right. It truly takes a village we need animal advocates lobbying for laws against animal cruelty; donations and dog trainers, food and medical assistance, building supplies, dog crates, dog walkers, foster homes it takes a village. For initial contacts with various animal rescue groups, please turn to page 50. Its not a hopeless situation. On another subject, namely the Revue mag azine, we are unveiling two new sections this month: the Marketplace and the Honduras pages; photo contest winners show o their work; plus an FY I on self-insured health care, and the open ing of a state-of-the-art eye clinic in La A ntigua. Thank you, as always, for reading the Revue, in print, on-line and now with daily postings on our Facebook page.

Actualmente se encuentran miles de perros abandonados y perdidos en las calles, aguantando hambre, sed, enfermedades y las inclemencias del tiempo. Lo lamentable es que en un alto porcentaje, han sido abandonados por sus dueos o sencillamente los echaron a la calle. Actos infames y crueles, todos sabemos que los animales domsticos y en especial las mascotas necesitan de los seres humanos para sobrevivir. Existen adems otras formas de crueldad y de mal trato hacia los perros, por ejemplo: mantenerlos encadenados o en espacios ridculamente reducidos. La privacin de libertad equivale a una tortura permanente. Ellos no pueden expresar lo que sienten, pero el encadenamiento o el enjaulamiento les provoca sufrimientos fsicos y emocionales, les cambia el carcter y se tornan amargados y agresivos. Otros, dejan a sus perros en las terrazas de las casas, sin siquiera un techo para protegerlos del sol y de la lluvia. Ese exilio les causa adems sentimientos de tristeza y depresin porque ellos son gregarios por naturaleza y les gusta estar cerca de sus amos como una sombra. ...a pgina 97EN ESPAOLAPRENDAMOS A DARLE BUEN TRATO A LOS ANIMALESYa lo dijo Alexander Von HumboltLA CULTURA DE EN PAIS SE MIDE POR TRATO QUE LE DAN A LOS ANIMALES.

Saturnos excavation and documentation of the house were supported by the National Geographic Society. Photo by Tyrone Turner 2012 National Geographic The ancient Mayan megacity of Xultn (200-900 AD) is the site of the latest and greatest discovery by archaeologiststhe oldest-known Mayan astronomical tables, predating other sites by several centuries. e tabulated numbers chart the motion of the moon and seem to relate to the orbits of Mars and Venus. e Mayan calendar end of the world theory can now be put to rest. e numbers do not predict the world will end in December 2012. e structure that houses both art and astronomical calculations is topped by a vaulted ceiling; on the oor sits a stone bench, suggesting to archaeologists that the room was a meeting place. William Saturno, a Boston University archaeologist, in a statement released by the National Geographic Society, reported, For the rst time we get to see what may be actual records kept by a scribe, whose job was to be the ocial record keeper of a Maya community. Its like an episode of TVs Big Bang eory, a geek math problem and theyre painting on the wall. ey seem to be using it like a blackboard.

18 I almost walked right into this large spider one dawn and was amazed by all the little ies walking on its body. As it turns out, these little Milichiidae ies play a role similar to cattle egrets who clean and preen the bigger animal. is is an example of what scientists call commensalism. In everyday language: the spider and the ies are friends!

17 LETTERS FROM THE WILDERNESS text/photos by Capt. or JansonI would like to take this opportunity to say a few words on behalf of all the little guysall the little creatures that make up the vast majority of the Earths animal life. If we were to weigh together every creature on Earththe zoological biomass of the planetwe would discover that more than 90 percent is made up of insects. If we add to that the other small and tiny species of worms, nematodes, tardigrades and others, the percentage would rise to more than 99 percent. On Earth, small is truly huge. e big animals, like tigers, tuna, shrews and humans, members of the vertebrate phylum Chordataliterally meaning creatures with spinal cordsare in the very small minority. We often overlook the fact that our planets ecology is totally dependent upon the health of these teeming hosts of little ones numbering in the billions. e largest group (order) of animals on Earth is the Coleoptera or beetle, most of which live in the tropical rainforest canopy. Entomologists studying the diversity of the tropical forest shine bright lights up into the trees at night and wait for bugs to descend, knowing that chances are good they will discover new, unidentied species to name after themselves. Only a small percentage of the totality of these insects has been identied. Estimates vary between 10 million and 100 million total species. Many of these areWe often overlook the fact that our planets ecology is totally dependent upon the health of these teeming hosts of creatures numbering in the billions.Miniature Oxyopidae spider

18 specialized pollinators and are crucially important for the survival of countless plant species. Each individual is part of a huge interconnected ecosystem, each element playing a role dependent upon many other elements all working in concert creating the symphony of life. Should any part of the global body suer, so does the whole body. Conservation campaigns usually focus on endangered vertebrates like jaguars, pandas, elephants and quetzals because people identify more with warm, fuzzy, big animals. But we can be sure that every time a new swath of forest is put to the torch and cleared for cropland and cattle ranching, that many, many species of the little ones become extinct. We are conducting a dangerous experiment upon our home planet by dismantling the incredible diversity of life, each species like a thread in a vast tapestry whose functioning we are only beginning to understand. No one knows how much can be destroyed before we upset the balance. Every creature seems to play a role, even parasites serve a purpose. We are just beginning to understand the benecial symbiotic relationship between the human body and certain bacteria. We are dependent on many other species and any failure of one part of the ecosystem can create a domino eect, causing disruption throughout the entire chain of life.

19What we do know for sure is that more than half of all the temperate and tropical forests are gone, half of the wetlands and a third of the mangroves are gone, an estimated 90 percent of the large predatory sh are gone and more than 20 percent of the worlds coral reefs are dead. Perhaps the time has come to think about preserving some of nature before it is too late. S.O.S. GUATEMALA: YOUR RAINFORESTS ARE ENDANGERED! At the present rates of growth the world economy will quadruple in the next 50 years or less, and the human population continues to increase. is is a very real predicament for Guatemala, which has the second-fastest growing human population, after Haiti, in the Americas. Haitis forests have been almost completely decimated and that is a major factor causing this Caribbean nation to be an economic and ecological basket case. So, we call upon Guatemalas leaders to take this situation seriouslythere is no time to waste. At present almost all of the protected forests in Guatemalas Petn Department have been invaded by land-poor campesinos and the situation is spiraling out of control. (And let me be clear here, I have nothing again the campesinos. A hungry man must nd a way to feed himself and his family. What is needed is more employment opportunity so that these poor, largely indigenous, people are not forced to cut down the forest in order to subsist.) Also, illegal logging operates with near impunity nationwide. Needed are visionary leaders who will take the necessary steps to stabilize and reverse these destructive trends.

20 Guatemala holds many secret treasures that arent apparent at rst sight, and it is always a treat as gem after gem is unveiled with the more time you spend here. One special discovery is the large underwater canyon called e Pocket, located just o the Pacic Coast. With strong everchanging currents and a healthy supply of nutrients, predator sh, such as the pez vela (sailsh) come in to hunt these rich waters. us, with waters as prime as these, you just might have one of the best days of shing in your life. To get started youll need to nd a reliable outtter who knows the waters and the ins and outs of sport shing. ree great options include Team Parlama Charter Services, Pacic Fins Guatemala Resort & Marina and Casa Vieja Lodge, located in the Puerto San Jos area of Guatemala. e prime season for sailsh is October-June; the marlin season is September-December. However, with the unpredictable currents and the unique canyon Pocket just o the coast, shing for sailsh, dorado (mahimahi), yellow-n tuna and marlin is always pretty good. ...continued page 96In Search of the Big Pez VelaSPORT FISHING text/photos by Tara Tiedemann A good day of Pez Vela (sailsh) shing. e outtters do their part for sustainability by only practicing catch-and-release shing and using circular hooks so as not to harm the sh.

21 Parlama Sport FishingHow Parlama owner Dennis Wheeler came to own his rst boat is a once-in-alifetime experience not often heard of. He had just returned from a successful shing trip o the Pacic Coast of Guatemala with a fellow enthusiast, and they were discussing the possibility of Wheeler buying a boat of his own. Wheeler had been shing all his life, starting when he was a child in the States. His passion followed him to Guatemala in 1965 where, as a Peace Corps volunteer, he shed to survive in the Petn. Owning a boat seemed like a logical t for him, but Wheeler was uncertain and had trouble pulling the trigger. Wheelers friend, however, was more condent. As we were saying goodbye, he reached over and put 1,000 bucks in my shirt pocket, and said, Go out and buy your boat. I was ready to go. is was the 1970s and boats cost more than $1,000, but it was a good start. With his new lancha, he started taking local volunteers on short day trips, shing for dorado and billsh. Over the years, he obtained one boat after another. Parlama is now a eet of six, the newest additions being 28 and 36 yachts. Four are docked in Puerto San Jos and two in Ro Dulce. Parlama shes for marlin, sailsh (catch and release only) and dorado, the best time being from October through April. Parlama boats are stocked with all the equipment an angler needs. Rods are custom-made by Pat Brian, a friend of Wheelers in Austin, Texas, and are outtted with Shimano reels. Parlamas prices are some of the most reasonable in Guatemala. A half-day trip for three on a lancha runs $375. A half-day trip on the 36 yacht (which can accommodate up to 9 people), costs $600 and $1,200 for a full day. In addition to deep-sea and coastal shing, Parlama oers half-day or full-day ocean safaris for whale watching or simply taking in the rich Guatemalan sun on the open ocean. ...continued page 96ADVENTURE by Natalie RoseOwner Dennis Wheeler recounts 40+ years of shing and eets

32 by Lori Shea HEALTHY SOLUTIONS Lori Shea is the founder of Guatemala Medical Travel (www.GuatemalaMedicalTravel.com); you can contact her directly: lori@guatemalamedicaltravel.com Maintaining healthy bodies and minds is a serious responsibility that requires careful consideration in both our daily lifestyle choices and our long-term nancial decisions. We exercise and eat well, drive safely and pay for our health insurance every month. But medical expenses are increasing at 8-20 percent per year while our incomes are not, and the rules are changing. For the benet of ourselves and our families, we must learn about all the options in order to determine the best possible plan. Many people would never dream of giving up their medical insurance for fear of nancial ruin due to catastrophic medical expenses. ey live in the comfort of knowing their medical coverage is free from their employer or the Veterans Administration or Medicare. When your knee replacement is $75,000 and a cancer treatment program is $150,000, while insurance companies rack up billions of dollars in quarterly prots, and fraud is estimated in the trillions, there is nothing free about it at all. You, the patient or consumer, had your annual salary reduced by about $12,000 so that your employer could oer group health coverage benets to you. e Medicare check that pays your doctor bills this year was funded by YOU, in the form of paycheck deductions, every week, for the past 40 or 50 years. And the veterans, well, we all know the price they paid. Private insurance is expensive and many people opt out, hoping that they have enough in savings to cover unexpected medical bills. To save money, they might buy the fear-inducing, Armageddon-anticipating catastrophic illness coverage, with a deductable so high, and limitations so lengthy, that you might as well just pay the bills yourself. We need to make the move to being informed consumers, purchasing quality medical services and products at a fair and reasonable price, instead of policyholders asking permission to get a good value from our healthcare expenses. Maybe cancer is your worst-case scenario. In Guatemala, in June 2012, Peter paid $6,500 for the delicate surgery to remove the cancerous tumor that invaded the lymph nodes in his neck. Only four months earlier, he paid over $20,000 for cancer surgery with ...continued page 36Buying Medical Care vs. Buying Medical Insurance

But, at $65,000, that still left him paying $13,000 out of pocket. Total hip replacements are routinely performed in Guatemalas high-tech hospitals, with state-ofthe-art prosthetic implants and globally experienced surgeons, for around $11,000. Sure, its a big dent on the credit card, but a far cry from bankruptcy or losing your house. So what is the best health insurance of all? Get serious about treating your body like the most precious, fragile personal possession you own, striving to maintain all of your systems in the best possible working order. Keep yourself nourished and lubricated; active and challenged; calm and happy. See your doctor to nd out exactly where you stand, and keep enough cash on hand to self-insure in case of serious illness. You can tell those billions in prots and catastrophic expense guys that you wont be buying their products any more. You have a better plan. a well-respected surgeon in Florida to do the same job, but that doctor obviously did not. After a few weeks of healing, Peter was able to start six weeks of daily radiotherapy treatment to totally eradicate his cancer, for $12,000. Now, how do those prices compare with your kitchen renovation or speed boat at the lake? Maybe its not so catastrophic after all. Do you keep that insurance to cover a one-in-a-million rare, drug-resistant bone infection that requires an astronomically priced, month-long hospital stay and dozens of doctor visits? at happened to our Guatemala Medical Travel client in May 2012, and he paid about $125 per night for the hospital room and $70 each for visits with specialists in laparoscopic microsurgery and infectious diseases, for example. After receiving three surgical procedures, daily IV antibiotic drip for a month, and numerous therapies and medications, he paid only $10,200 in medical expenses until he was 100 percent healed and ready to return home.

42 Walking into the new oces of Centro Visual G&G is like walking into a relaxing spa where you would go to be pampered, not to have your eye-care needs met. e distinctive eye-care facility was in the nal stages of construction as of late September, but the building blocks, such as colonial architecture and rich, sunset orange walls, already exude calm and tranquility. e fountain in the center of the well-manicured courtyard adds a soundtrack of cascading water, setting a soothing tone. To add to the calming ambience, there are plans for patio furniture, reading areas as well as a coee cart. e doctors meet every patient with a welcoming smile and a warm handshake, as if they were greeting a friend. Ophthalmology specialists Drs. Jos and Dalia de Golcher, who have been practicing in La Antigua Guatemala for eight years, walk through their new space pointing out the purpose of every room. ere are two exam rooms, an ophthalmologist oce to purchase frames and contact lenses, and a spacious surgery room. ere is a dedicated area for aesthetic medicines, such as Botox and other facial treatments, which Dr. Dalia feels entwines seamlessly with eye care. People not only need to see well, but need to look and feel well too. [ese services] complement the ophthalmology services here we want to give you the best appearance for your face and your eyes. But perhaps the most exciting area in the new G&G oce is the diagnostic center. e future home to nine state-of-the-art optical machines, each machine serves a specic purpose to aid in the doctors diagnosis of debilitating eye diseases. With these machines, it is possible to detect certain diseases years before the patient notices symptoms and take immediate action to ensure healthy sight for life.

62 Sacred A nimals and E xotic T ropical Plantsby Dr. Nicholas M. Hellmuth, Daniela DaCosta, Ilena Garca of FLAAR ReportsBirds have played an important part in the life and culture of ancient civilizations. Between A.D. 300 and A.D. 600, owls were occasionally featured in the murals and vase paintings of Teotihuacn, Mexico. Some owl eye rings are good replicas of the round goggles of the Teotihuacn deity Tlaloc. Mayan art, too, often depicts the owl. As birds of prey, they are characterized as nocturnal predators; their soft plumage is adapted to move silently at night. In the Mayan belief system, the night, the darkness and death are connected, so it isnt surprising that the owl has been associated with dark forces, as messengers of the underworld and as a manifestation of the god of death. Probably the most pictured is the barn owl. is bird is characterized by its pale bu, gray and white feathers; its dark eyes are framed by a heart-shaped white facial disk. Some authors have identied owls in Mayan art as the moan bird. So when you next see an owl or hear an owl hoot, I hope this article has introduced the fact that owls are part of the mythology, iconography and epigraphy of 2,000 years of Mesoamerican culture. Birds in the Mayan civilization: Dr. Nicholas M. Hellmuth is director of FLAAR Reports (Foundation for Latin American An thropological Research).

64 What would you like to share about your work on the Security Council?At the least, as a personal experience, it has been fascinating to have a front-row seat in the management of some of the most daunting conicts in the world: the IsraeliPalestinian situation, the situation in Syria, the situation in Sudan and South Sudan, the situation in West Africa (especially Mali) and the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo. At the same time, it has been sobering to actually have an active participation in trying to manage these conicts. On the whole, the Security Council has not been all that successful at dealing with the most pressing of these problems (Syria), so the experience has also had its frustrations. But, on balance, it has been enriching, both personally and, more importantly, for Guatemala. I am proud to see our country participating in the major leagues of international diplomacy, and, from time to time, actually making a dierence. at is both personally and nationally satisfying.What questions does the Security Council have under consideration at this time?ere are several categories of agenda items. One is the routine follow-up of all Security Council resolutions that have ongoing peace-keeping operations or special political missions, which total about 20 at present. A second is dealing with the 16 sanctions committees that oversee the work against terrorism and administer sanctions to states that have not met with their international responsibilities. And the third, and most challenging, is dealing with emerging conicts or situations where you have ongoing conicts. Syria is the most dramatic example, but we also have serious potential conicts in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, on the border between Sudan and South Sudan, and in Mali, as well as Yemen.What is Guatemalas position on the Syria civil war and how does that play into your role on the UN Security Council?Guatemala has, since the beginning of the conict, condemned the government of Bashar al-Assad for committing mass atrocities against its civilian population. What started as a peaceful uprising has now predictably become a civil war. We support a political, Syrian-led transition, which responds to the grass-roots aspirations of the majority of the population. is means that sooner or later President al-Assad will have to step aside and let some type of temporary unity government administer the transition. We do not support outside military intervention, which would, in our judgment, just make matters worse. And we still feel that there is a chance for diplomacy to win out over armed conict, and that the United Nations will have an important role to play in such an outcome. On the other hand, should the government and the so-called Free Syrian Army elect to continue ghting, the cost for innocent civilians will be very high indeed, and it is hard for the world to sit by and watch this tragedy unfold. Hopefully, both parties will reach the conclusion that the cost is just too high for their country, and that the political, diplomatic outcome is a preferable option. When not in New York, Ambassador Rosenthal and his family live in Antigua, where they have been long-time residents. We are honored to have Ambassador Rosenthal represent Guatemala at such an important time in history. And on a personal note, the Rosenthal family, including his wife Margit and four daughters, are such nice peoplegreat to have as neighbors! G ert R osenthal cont. from page 6

Me preocupaba que el dueo del carro debajo del cual la perrita se haba refugiado no la mirara y la atropellara de nuevo. Despus de tres horas y sin poder concentrarme en el trabajo, con la ayuda de otro compaero, decidimos subirla al carro y llevarla al veterinario. Ya miraramos despus dnde colocarla para su recuperacin aunque tema que el doctor nos dijera que haba que ponerla a dormir debido a la gravedad de sus heridas. El veterinario nos indic que la perrita estaba muy dbil y que tena un desgarre en la pata trasera derecha. Le aplic un antibitico y vitaminas y nos dijo que necesitaba descansar durante 3 semanas para que el desgarre se curara por s solo. As que volvimos a subirla al carro y la trasladamos a un hogar temporal en donde recibira las atenciones que necesitaba. Y as fue como le cambi la vida a Molly (su nombre ocial despus del rescate).

Now, MayaStrada Motorcycle Charity Rides is oering a new way to experience the Guatemalan countryside, while helping the very people who make this country unique. We are bringing together local and visiting motorbike riders to participate in onand o-road treks that will benet local charities, says Mick Quinn, founder of MayaStrada.org. MayaStrada was created with one goal: to form a La Antigua Guatemala-based motorcycle group open to anyone with a bike, a sense of adventure and a desire to help Guatemalan communities. Participants are asked to pay a small fee to join each ride, and, if they wish, to do a fundraising campaign on their own. One-hundred percent of the donations from each ride will go to local nonprot Integral Heart Foundation and other nonprots, which will be individually announced for each ride. Motorcycle rides are being planned for the forthcoming months to destinations such as the Mayan ruins at Mixco Viejo, Paredon Surf House, a loop of volcano Fuego, and short, fun runs for breakfast on the weekend to Tecpn and other locations. ere are also plans for longer rides to the Cristo Negro in Esquipulas and the famous drunken horse races in Todos Santos, and early next year theres a ve-country ride that will visit El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

Apparently, this continues to be a popular fad. Is being carried around so much bad for the dog? When dogs are young puppies it is common to carry them around (especially with the small breeds) since they are not yet leash trained. But its critical that dogs learn to walk (on and o leash) around and socialize by meeting other dogs, playing with children, visiting other homes and other safe locations. If you carry a dog all of the time, he doesnt socialize properly, he can feel helpless and then react to other people by growling and snapping. When this happens the owner usually tries to comfort the dog, unaware that the soothing words come across as praise and thus makes the aggression worse. If your daughters dog is well socialized, then an occasional hour or two of riding around with his head sticking out of her purse will not be a problem.

Have you ever walked outside after an electrical storm and noticed how vital the air seems? is is due to the negatively charged ions and extra oxygen in the air. is charged air is actually more vital and healthy than regular air, mostly because it contains ozone. While air is known as O2, ozone is actually O3. is extra oxygen molecule is easily liberated, and when it enters the human body it oers incredible health benets. Oxygen is vital to your health, and ozone is a vital form of oxygen. When ozone comes in contact with a moist surface it will release the extra oxygen. is makes ozone an ideal cleaning agent. Ozone is used worldwide to purify drinking water, and ozone-infused water is excellent for rinsing foods and keeping gums super healthy. e medical use of ozone has been studied by doctors since the 1800s as they quickly discovered that it helps with wound healing and all forms of tissue repair. Ozones extra oxygen molecule not only oxidizes (destroys) bacteria and viruses, it also releases oxygen into the tissues for faster healing. e only caution is that ozone should not be inhaled directly into the lungs in large concentrations, as the delicate tissues can be irritated. Ozone can safely enter the bloodstream through injection or by direct contact with the skin and mucus membranes. Wondrous healing results have been documented from ozone therapy, from cancers to inammations to the reversal of AIDS symptoms. Scientist Nikola Tesla patented an ozone generator in 1896, and it was widely used to help heal skin irritations, bug bites and wounds. While the FDA has stalled the use of ozone in the U.S., it is a highly regarded treatment throughout Europe and many other countries. It is especially valuable in dentistry, where the teeth and gums must be thoroughly cleansed before placing a restoration. ousands of studies have demonstrated that ozone is safer than any pharmaceutical drug and virtually free from side eects. Ozone treatment reverses many cancers and other medical ...continued page 78

Transdermal ozone is a method in which ozone is introduced into the body via the skin while the individual is sitting in a hot steam cabinet. An ozone steam cabinet offers tremendous health benets. e pores of the skin open as a result of being surrounded by the warm steam, and ozone enters the body transdermally (i.e. via the skin). e ozone then penetrates the blood, lymph and fat. Steam ozone therapy is one of the most powerful methods of detoxifying and oxygenating the body in existence. problems. is is because our bodies were designed to use oxygen. e addition of ozone oers a boost to the bodys natural healing processes. In fact, in ancient times the oxygen level in the air was far higher than today. It has been demonstrated that pre-historic oxygen levels exceeded 35 per cent of the air; our air today only holds 20 percent of this important gas. Without adequate oxygen, brain function suers, cancer cells grow and aging is accelerated. is is one of the reasons why doctors recommend exerciseit is not just about moving the body; it is recommendedOZO N E cont. from page 76ANTIGUA Lodging Casa Ovalle Chipilapa, a private and comfortably furnished house just for you!Casa Ovalle Zona 10, a perfect place to stay, close to medical and nancial area of Guatemala City!2a av. norte No. 3 ~ Tel: (502) 7832-3031, www.hotelcasaovalle.com Fully Equipped Luxury Suites at Hotel Room Prices! www.elmarquesdeantigua.com

84 On Nov. 1, visitors travel to Sumpango and Santiago, Sacatpequez, to stand in awe of los barilletes gigantes, the giant kites made specically for the Day of the Dead in these two Kaqchikel Mayan villages. As large as 20 meters, the size of a six-story building, the kites are decorated in gures, landscapes and messages, resembling enormous murals or mandalas. From a distance it is easy to think that the kites are giant paintings or made of plastic or nylon. In fact, they are collages on a fantastic scale, every image, indeed every part of the kite is made from layers of hand-cut papel de china, the semitransparent, colored tissue paper often used to line gift boxes or as wrapping paper. e Day of the Dead is the culmination of between six and eleven months of work for los barilleteros, the kite makers. e kite festival and exhibition on Nov. 1 is the rst time the barilleteros themselves see the results of their labor as the ...continued page 86e Magnicent and Fragile Giant Kites of Sumpango TRA DITI O N text/photos by Louise WisechildKites of November

86 paper. Variations of color and shading are made by gluing overlapping layers of colored paper to create gures of people and animals, landscapes and written messages. Because of the fragile nature of the tissue paper, the glue is applied with small paintbrushes. Each piece is then carefully placed and smoothed into position by an experienced barilletero, who is usually working on his hands and knees on a cement oor. A backing of black tissue and clear packing tape reinforces the kite. Kites measuring six meters or less are own, sometimes requiring eight men to hold the line as the kite becomes airborne. Many times these kites are seriously damaged in their Nov. 1 ight or in a preight crash, their beautiful murals shattered by the mischievous wind or by a failure to get o the ground. ese smaller kites are traditional eight-sided Guatemalan kites, the octagon making a unique rounded, as opposed to sections of the kites are glued together, then mounted on a web of bamboo. In Sumpango there are 75-80 groups of kite makers, over 600 barilleteros, most of whom are teenagers and single young men. ey are from many occupations, including farmers, students, electricians, architects and lawyers. ey are willing to work from 7 p.m. to 1 or 2 in the morning Monday through Friday nights and then from 2 in the afternoon on Saturdays until noon on Sundays beginning July 1 and nishing Nov. 1. Barilleteros with 8-10 years of kitemaking experience coordinate the making of the kites and teach the younger kite makers the method and the culture of the barilleteros. In addition to doing the actual work of the kites, the barilleteros contribute their own money toward the construction of the kites. Even standing close to the kites, it is difcult to believe they are not paintings but are actually made of thousands of pieces ofKITES cont. from page 84 ...continued page 104

No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man. Albert Einstein.Those who would take over the Earth And shape it to their will I have seen that they do not succeed. For the Earth is like a sacred vessel Dangerous to tamper with Those who tamper with her, dele her Those who would take her by force, lose her. Laotzu, China, 500 B.C. including Guatemala, now faces a decline of native pollinators. Over 100 species of birds and more than 80 mammals that pollinate are considered threatened or extinct by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. How many native insect pollinators have disappeared from the Mayan Biosphere Reserve and other Meso-American forests, no one knows, but with more than half of the regions forests gone, we can be sure that the number must be high. Scientists tell us that the honey bee is totally responsible for the pollination of over 90 percent of the fruit and vegetable crops worldwide, so it is disturbing to discover that 30 billion honeybees representing onequarter of the Northern Hemispheres population has mysteriously vanished and that 90 percent of wild honeybees in the U.S. have died out. As yet, no one knows for sure the reason why. Possible culprits cited include genetically modied crops, climate change, electromagnetic pollution, especially from cell phone towers, and excessive use of pesticides. As Einstein proclaimed long ago, it would be devastating if we were to lose all our honeybees, since most of our food crops are not self-pollinating. A study in Europe has revealed that the number of wildowers that depend on pollination has dropped by 70 percent. e entire world,Small is Huge cont. from page 19

96 e world of deep-sea shing has changed since Wheeler bought his rst boat. With evidence pointing to a drastic change in the worlds oceans due to climate change, one would expect Wheeler to say he has seen a drop in the number of sh caught now than in the past. Wheeler, however, says in the last few years, he has seen an increase in the number of sh Parlamas clients catchespecially marlin. Whereas ve years ago, a boat would hook four marlin every year, the last two years his boats have hooked a marlin almost every trip. He equates this to the water temperature and currents in e Pocket, a deep trench that spans from El Salvador up to Mexico where many local species like to dwell. Conscious of these changes, Wheeler feels a responsibility to preserve and protect the sh population in addition to providing a grand maritime adventure for his clients. Parlama gave up using standard J-hooks, the industry choice for many years, in favor of ne wire circle hooks. e former left marlin and other sh with considerable damage when released if the hook caught in the wrong place, like the gut. Wheeler states not only do circle hooks work better for catching billsh, but also leaves them in great shape after they are released. When he speaks about his shing operation, its clear he respects the territory and wants to leave it as untouched as possible. Wheeler states, e idea is to leave a small footprint. Parlama Fishing cont. from page 21 Pez V ela Fishing cont. from page 20Tara Tiedemann is the owner/operator of Viva Adventures located in La Antigua Guatemala.Guatemala has been able to retain this rich pocket of sh by being the rst country to pass a law, in 1997, prohibiting the commercial shing of sailsh. e outtters do their part with sustainability by only practicing catch-and-release shing and using circular hooks so as not to harm the sh. is way the sport shing industry can be kept alive here and many more will be able to experience the thrill of catching and releasing a big 100-pound sailsh. ere are two techniques for catching that big shone being the conventional way with articial teasers and natural bait, and the other is y shing to really test your angling skills. Either way, once you experience the adrenaline rush of that big sh on the end of your line, youll be smiling from ear to ear, hoping for the chance to do it again and again. A day out on the water sport shing can be a fun and exhilarating change of pace for experienced shermen and women and novices alike. at salty ocean breeze, a fresh ceviche lunch and great photo opportunities make a trip down to the coast a worthwhile experience for anyone who comes to Guatemala. With sustainability being a prime concern for Guatemala, the outtters and visitors alike, one can hope that Guatemala continues to maintain its rich and varied sh population o its coast and promise many more successful days of shing for years to come.

Animales de pgina 14 Es este un tema para reexionar, aprendamos a amar a nuestras mascotasMal trato es tambin, no curarlos cuando se enferman. La mayora de veces no es por falta de recursos econmicos sino por inconsciencia, falta de compasin y de amor, por una tacaera ofensiva o por conceptos primitivos de que son animales, creyendo quizs de que no sienten. Muchos no se preocupan siquiera por brindarles una alimentacin adecuada. Lo que hacen es tirarles una cuantas tortillas o panes, pero estos no contienen los nutrientes esenciales. Una mala alimentacin debilita sus defensas y los predisponen. A distintas enfermedades, incluyendo el llamado jiote o sarna. Tampoco les dan agua, o lo hacen solo cuando se recuerdan sin comprender que el agua limpia debe de ponrseles todos los das en forma ja. Otros, juegan con las sentimientos de los animales, los adquieren y despus fcilmente se libran de ellos al darse cuenta que no era lo que deseaban o que no tienen el tiempo de cuidarles correctamente. No se salvan tampoco los que lucran con su dolor, se dedican a reproducirlos para venderlos como mercancas, sin importarles su destino. El error ms comn es que dejan irresponsablemente que tengan descendientes, al no evitarlo en el periodo de celo, mucho menos esperar que paguen operaciones de esterilizacin, y en el peor de los casos, se empean en buscarles parejas. En un pas como el nuestro, en donde existe una marcada sobrepoblacin de animales y gran parte de ellos sufren por las calles, tener grandes camadas de descendientes implica un problema social y una gran dicultad para encontrarles hogar. Lo ms seguro es que al regalarlos, la mayora llegan a manos de gente inconsciente e inculta que les van a dar malos tratos y nalmente terminan en la calle. 97

104 ant kites of Sumpango became increasingly innovative in form and design. In addition to giving their group an English name, they broke free of the traditional eight-sided kite to incorporate open space and improbable shapes into the form of their kites. Other groups followed and also began addressing social issues such as indigenous rights, pollution, violence and the situation of women. Some kites speak to the contemporary meaning of Mayan cosmology using modern images, others arm the strong cultural traditions of the Mayas, portraying highly detailed scenes, all crafted from colored tissue paper and meticulously glued. Perhaps more than any Mayan art in Guatemala today, the creation of los barilletes gigantes is an evolving form giving voice to contemporary Maya artists and speaking to the power of traditional community and collaboration. According to a barilletero I spoke with, the tradition of using papel de china for the Nov. 1 kites is over 70 years old. It is interesting that such a slight medium was chosen for such intricate and time-consuming work, but perhaps it represents the nature of life itself, magnicent and fragile. a diamond, shape. is octagon is thought to represent the Maya belief in the four directions: north, south, east and west, with four additional points to form a corona, the crown of the sun. Fringed paper is xed to four sides of the octagon. e sound of the wind rustling this cut paper is believed to keep away bad spirits. Prayers and messages to the ancestors are traditionally placed on the string of the kite and then are moved by the wind up the string. When the message joins the main body of the kite, it has been received by the ancestors. e larger kites are not own, but displayed upright. e mounting of these kites involves securing the kite to an intricate lattice of bamboo and then undertaking the herculean task of hoisting the kite so it is vertical. Families pose for photos, diminished by the size of the kites. Many of these massive kites are far from being octagonal indeed some of them are so challenging in structure that they are designed by barilleteros who are professional architects and builders. Following the peace treaty of 1996 and led by a group of highly creative barilleteros, who call themselves Happy Boys, the gi-KITES cont. from page 86

106 HONDURASby Monish WelcomePeggy Stranges in her clinic of hope, Clinica EsperanzaIt is Monday morning at Clnica Esperanza in Sandy Bay. People are talking in hushed voices as they sit in lines of chairs waiting to see a doctor. Children are playing on the playground outside while adults enjoy baleadas prepared by a local woman running her own little micro-business. e waiting room is air conditioned, clean and inviting, these are staples of the care that patients receive at Clnica Esperanza, a not-for-prot clinic for the underserved of the Bay Islands of Honduras. Behind this vision is a red-haired, middle-aged woman, covered in freckles with glasses dangling from her neck and a serene, yet matter-of-fact demeanor. Her name is Peggy Stranges. A registered nurse, Stranges began her journey in 2002 at her kitchen table, where she was educating families and patients with diabetes and other prevalent illnesses here in Roatn. Her home instantly became known as the clinic of hope, and patients with ailments of all sorts started seeking her out. Patients soon were overowing her rst-oor, beach-front apartment, so she moved into a few rooms at the former Son Rise Mission Inn in Sandy Bay. When the patients increased daily a permanent home was necessary. Land and monetary donations were made, as well as materials and labor, and Clnica Esperanza soon opened, thanks to donors, island-wide fundraisers and the sweat and hard work of many. In August 2011 Clnica Esperanza received its license and in early 2012 opened a new pediatric inpatient unit and birthing center. Located in Sandy Bay, adjacent to Anthonys Key Resort, the clinic opens at 8 a.m. ve days a week and closes when the last patient is seen. e number of patients ranges from 60 to 100 a day; approximately 60% are children, 30% are adult females and 10% are adult males. Over 15,000 patients have been treated here, from Punta Gorda, Diamond Rock, Coxen Hole, French Harboureven people from the mainland seek Clnica Esperanzas service. ...cont. page 108For over 5,000 locals on Roatn, this special clinic is their primary medical care provider.

108 For over 5,000 locals on Roatn, Clnica Esperanza is their primary medical care provider. It is also considered as the center for diabetes and hypertension on Roatn. e clinic provides many services, such as treatment for upper respiratory tract infections, malaria and minor orthopedic and traumatic injuries. It also manages chronic problems requiring lifetime care, such as diabetes and hypertension, which are very common on Roatn. Many of patients affected by these conditions had not received proper care before they arrived at the clinic for the rst time. An important aspect of the clinic is its well-stocked pharmacy of medications provided free of charge from international organizations and individual donations. e clinic also provides donated medication to other clinics and the public hospital. e treatment charge per patient is 70 lempiras, equivalent to $3.50, and it is waived if the patient is unable to pay. e fee encourages patients to participate in their own healthcare, and patients often choose to give a larger amount. Clninca Esperanza has raised the bar for healthcare in Roatn. Everyone is welcome at the clinic and will be treated by a kind sta. ere is no doubt that Peggy Stranges and all who stand beside her are a blessing to the island and will continue to be for as long as this noble project stands. Clnica Esperanza cont. from page 106For more information visit www.clinicaesperanza.comLocated in Sandy Bay, adjacent to Anthonys Key Resort, the clinic opens at 8 a.m. ve days a week and closes when the last patient is seen.
