Within a couple of years we transformed the name into the Classieds Revue, expanding our base to include Cobn and Petn and stretching across the border with circulation in El Salvador. Finally, the publication became simply the Revue magazine. is month we celebrate 21 years providing businesses with low cost, eective print advertising, along with highlighting all the positive aspects of Guatemala via interviews, cultural activities, overviews, good news and what we hope is interesting reading to the many who pick up the magazine each month. e longevity of the magazine comes with great thanks to our many advertisers, some have been inside these pages almost from its inception; as well, we are grateful to the Revue sta, most have been with us for many, many years. And nally we give thanks and appreciation to Revue readers whose support and encouragement has sustained us. ere have been many changes to the magazine since 1992most recently is our expanded worldwide circulation on the Revue Facebook page (www.facebook.com/revuemagazine) and the Revue website (www. revue.gt) where you can virtually turn the pages, search back issues, see DateBook updates, and more. How well we remember the days when wed head to the post oce sending o subscription editions, wondering how long it would take Judi S., one of our subscribers, to receive her latest copy of the Revue in far away Mozambique. Stay tuned in April for the next big change in the evolution of Revue. We hope you enjoy this months edition, yet another thank you goes to our team of writers whose work graces these many pages. Wishing you all happy travels and great adventures, at home and abroad.

15 ntigua used to be second to Seville, Spain for its Lenten celebration until recently. It is now considered the largest celebration in the world with 50 activities during the 40 days of Lent. In March processions ll the streets of Antigua with the fragrance of incense, pine needles, owers and coroso (a pod also used for carpet making). e increase in popularity is mostly attributed to the work of the hermandades. e Spanish model of cofradas was brought from Spain with the rst religious orders: Dominicans and Franciscans. e rst religious association was founded in Guatemala at Santo Domingo in 1547. ese organizations were dedicated to the advocacy of a particular saint, Christ or Virgin and grew in importance over the decades. A century after the cofradas moved to Guatemala City in 1774, President Justo Runo Barrios approved reforms in 1872 and many cofradas were dissolved and hermandades ourished. With virtually no inhabitants after the abandonment of Antigua in 1774, it was not until about 1808 that a small population resumed simple processions, which have evolved into the most magnicent pageantry today! eatrical dramatization was a tradition in bringing rituals to life for centuries, particularly in Medieval times when theater was used as a means of indoctrination as early as the eighth century. It was an audiovisual means for a fairly uneducated population and was extremely popular in the 11th century in Europe.

16 The most endangered of Earths forests are without question tropical cloud forests, which make up little more than one percent of the planets arboreal habitats. Visionary conservationists like Guatemalas Professor Mario Dary Rivera and Miguel lvarez del Toro of Chiapas had the foresight to secure some of these pristine environments before chainsaws and cattle ranches could decimate the unique diversity of life. Dozens of cloud-forest reserves exist today due to the tireless eorts of these green prophets. In Meso-America the surviving cloud forests are nearly always mountaintop forest reserves surrounded by developed croplands and ranches. ese forests are truly islands of nature in the sky where countless unique species are protected. Eventually, if these isolated islands of life are to survive, they must be linked up via a system of corridors as part of a larger Meso-American biological corridor project. Surrounded by cloud forest, the village of Quetzal overlooks the shores of Lake Tziscaotext/photos by Capt. or Janson/ ./rThe Road Less Traveled Local sign in the nature reserve at Lake Tziscao

17 One of the premier protected areas is Monte Bello Lakes National Park, which sits right on the border between the Department of Huehuetenango and the Mexican State of Chiapas. Nestled in the mountains of northern Huehuetenango is the little Guatemalan village of Quetzal, perched above the shore of Lake Tziscao, surrounded by cloud forest. is little town was inaccessible until recently when a new, reasonably good road was punched through, making this unknown highland area accessible to travelers. e history of Quetzal village is a uniquely Guatemalan story. About 150 years ago the rst settlers arrived at Lake Tziscao, arriving by foot, along with a few cargo mules, from the village of Nentn. ey brought little more than a few sacks of corn and beans, machetes, axes and a few pots and pans. ey found life by the lake good and soon these rst scouts were joined by their women. Within a few decades eight families had settled on the north shore of the lake and it was becoming a proper village. At the time the Guatemalan pioneers assumed that they were still in Guatemala. Only much later, when more exact and detailed surveys were conducted, was it discovered that half the community of Tziscao was on the Mexican side of the border and the other half was on the Guatemalan side. It was then that the village was divided into the now twin towns of Tziscao and Quetzal. e community remained very smalla few hundred soulsuntil the early 1980s when there was a big inux of new settlers. e U.N. High Commission on Refugees along with the International Red Cross established a camp at Tziscao to look after Monte Bello Lakes National Park is a complex of more than a dozen pristine highland lakes. Tziscao is the largest of the lakes and sits right on the border. Mexican park authorities along with local residents had the foresight to prohibit motorboats on all of these lakes to preserve water quality and maintain a tranquil atmosphere.

some of the tens of thousands of Maya refugees eeing the war in Guatemala. Years later, many of these refugees returned to their villages in Huehue, while some others, having grown to love the Tziscao area, decided to stay. At present the population of the twin towns is around 2,000, and many are involved with what is becoming a burgeoning trade, selling souvenirs to tourists visiting the lake region. Monte Bello Lakes National Park is a complex of more than a dozen pristine highland lakes sitting within unspoiled pine and broadleaf forests. e lakes are famous for their incredible emerald-blue color. e climate is cool and the water temperature is brisk. Tziscao is the largest of the lakes and sits right on the border. Mexican park authorities along with local residents had the foresight to prohibit motorboats on all of these lakes to preserve water quality and maintain a tranquil atmosphere. Guatemalan authorities might want to take this into consideration when planning further development. Lake Peten Itz, for example, can still be saved. From the village of Quetzal it is an easy walk over to the town of Tziscao on the Mexican side, where rustic but comfortable cabins can be rented for a night or a longer stay. Locals oer a cruise around the lake on balsa rafts paddled, gondola style, by your guide. A half hour up the road is the entrance to the Five Lakes area, where there are nature trails and visitors have a chance to view resplendent quetzals, chachalaca guans, coatimundis, grizon, tayras, peccary and many other cloud-forest denizens. Guides on both sides of the border can arrange to take you on an expedition to pristine Laguna Brava Lake on the Huehue side. is requires a trek through the jungle of several hours but aords the explorer a much better opportunity to see the wildlife of the region. Wildlife abounds in the region, including this beautiful tamandua Rustic but comfortable cabins are available for rent Tiny islands spot the lakes, but no motorboats18

With Guatemala on one side and Mexico on the other, this is a popular photo-op site.ere are two ways to get to the village of Quetzal and Lake Tziscao: the easy way, and the scenic route. First, the easy way. Drive the Interamerican Highway to Huehuetenango and continue north to the border at La Mesilla. Cross the border into Mexico and continue driving north toward Comitn. About an hour and a half up the road you will reach the town of Trinitaria. Here you will see big signs directing you to Lagos de Monte Bello, another half hour to the east. Continue to the town of Tziscao on the shore of Lake Tziscao. Quetzal is the twin town. Side Trip #1: For those choosing the easy way to Lake Tziscao, there is an excellent side trip along the way that is recommended. Halfway between the border and Trinitaria you will see signs for the Lago de Coln, located not far o the main highway. Coln Lakes is a developed community nature reserve comprised of crystal-clear cenotes (caves whose ceilings have collapsed, forming lakes) and many large, crocodile-infested lagoons. Within the reserve is the Lagartero Island Archeological Site with numerous pyramids and other structures. is reserve is an excellent place for bird watching, and nice accommodations and restaurants are available. Side Trip #2: When you arrive in Trinitaria, on your way to Monte Bello National Park, you may continue another 10 kilometers north on the main highway to the city of Comitn. e residents of Comitn obviously take great pride in their city because it is very clean and well kept with numerous beautiful parks; owers are everywhere. All facilities and accommodations are available in Comitn, even Walmart and Sams Club. Sorry, no McDonalds. You will have to content your taste buds with scrumptious quesadillas, tacos, gordas, gringas and guacamole. For the scenic route you also take the road between Huehuetenango headed for La Mesilla. About an hour north from Huehuetenango, you reach the town of Camoj, where you turn right and continue on paved highway to the next town of Nentn, a one-hour drive. From Nentn it is another hour drive to the next town of Trinidad. Along the way you cross beautiful Ro Azul, a good picnic site and great place for a dip. From Trinidad it is a 40-minute drive to Quetzal on an unpaved road, and this is the only part of the trip where the road could be somewhat rough depending on how much it has been raining. Normally any vehicle with reasonable clearance can make the trip with no problem. Nevertheless, a 4X4 would be an asset if the road has deteriorated. As always when traveling in the Guatemalan outback, ask the locals about road conditions. ings can change from one season to the next. is is part of the magic and challenge when one takes e Road Less Traveled! HOW TO GET THERE: 17

18 The clap-clap-clap I would hear in the evenings nally got the best of my curiosity and I knocked on her door. She told me they were torteando chocolate or making chocolate tortillas and invited me in. I was hooked from my rst cup. Doa Josefa was a master chocolate maker, an honest and upright person who was very proud of her family, the village and, of course, her chocolate. She became a good friend. When we opened Caf Condesa 20 years ago, I knew where to turn to for the best chocolate Id ever tasted. Ginger Hooven, owner of Caf Condesa, San Juan resident and chocolate lover Mara Josefa Sicn Chacn de Prez knew chocolate. She knew how to shake the cacao in her hands just so, to feel the weight of the beans and listen to the sound as they danced in her hand. She knew to look for color and texture quality; she knew to taste a raw cacao bean for a certain bitterness that would ensure a avorful chocolate. She knew how to grind the beans in a traditional molida, and she knew how to take hot chocolate paste and pat it into chocolate tortillas, similar to those made of maiz. She knew how to take care of people, knew how to make them feel special with a warm smile and a piping hot cup of hot chocolate laced with warming cinnamon. Known to most people simply as Doa Josefa, she was born on April 22, 1931, in the very same pueblo, San Juan del Obispo, where she would spend her entire life raising her family and making chocolate. She started working in the family chocolate-making businessChocolate San Juanwith her mother in 1976, when one pound of chocolate cost 30 centavos. Doa Josefa took over the business in 1986, after her mother died. She took pride in her familys traditional chocolate-making method and continued to use only the nest ingredients. Her product is as pure today as it was when her mother started the company 98 years ago. Doa Josefa was a woman who took the weight of the world on her shoulders. She was equally concerned with the cares and worries of her 10 children ...cont. page 77e Mistress of ChocolateBORDER CROSSING by Natalie RoseDoa Josefa of Chocolate San Juan leaves a sweet legacy 1931 2013

19 For those who struggle nancially, charitable giving is usually the rst thing that gets cut from the budget, often leaving non-prots and those they help in a predicament. For non-prots, there are good years and bad years; however, the unpredictability is as debilitating as the lack of funds. Nios de Guatemalaa local education non-prothas denitely felt the sting of the economic downturn. When the economy is good, you get more; when the economy is bad, you get less, but it is rather unpredictable said Sam Datlof, former communications manager at the organization. Nios is now testing a new method of sustainable development, a term it has coined prot for non-prot. Prot for nonprot is what Nios, in partnership with its sister organization, Cambio Spanish School, hopes will help calm the unpredictable tide of the nancial sea. And so far, it seems to be working. Nios, founded in 2006, runs two schools near La Antigua Guatemala, one in Ciudad Vieja, which opened in 2009, and the other in San Lorenzo, opened in 2012. Both take in students from families who cannot otherwise aord a decent education for their children. e schools are certied by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education, and unlike most state-run schools, utilize a full school day. Children return after lunch for classes like drawing, dance, painting and even origami. Parent involvement is encouraged, as parents who value education ...cont. page 86Prot for Non-Prot: working toward a nancially sustainable future COMMUNITY SERVICE by Natalie Rose Nios de Guatemala

U.S -born Kenneth Wood, who has lived in Guatemala for over two decades, makes his contribution to the environment by turn ing old newsprint into art. He collaborates with ADISA, an or ganization in Santiago Atitln that oers employment to young adults with physical and/or psychological challenges. Together, they began by producing thin strips of re cycled newspaper and wound them into bowls and jars. But the format soon grew, as ADISA and Wood let their imagina tions take ight. e paper strips took new kinds of spirally shapesat, tall, narrow, widerst produced by the hundreds and then, by the thousands. Back in his studio, Wood composes his distinctive art within a contained frame the only boundary to endless possibilities. e result is owing 3-D ...cont. page 74 Wood with some ADISA collaboratorsKenneth WoodWoods art will be shown at the Panza Verde Art Gallery in La Antigua, opening on March 13th at 5 p.m. Transformations From Newsprint to Art

21 When most people walk down a road and see useless dry leaves on the ground, an EcoLea producer sees gold. EcoLea is an innovative, sustainable fuel-wood alternative made from grass, leaves, straw and other renewable resources to replace re wood. Also called biomass briquettes, EcoLea is being produced and used in more than 60 countries. e EcoLea project in Guatemala was sponsored by National Geographic with two objectives. e rst, to save trees from being cut down for fuel, and the second, to provide EcoLea producers with a sustainable income from its sale. In February 2012, Fundacin Progresar, the Guatemalan non-prot foundation implementing the project in Guatemala in cooperation with the Legacy Foundation, selected 25 potential producers from Sacapulas, Coban, San Marcos and Santa Eulalia to attend the rst producers training, which took place in April 2012 in Tecpn. Seven months later, after the EcoLea producers had gained substantial experience and shared their product with other communities, 15 of the best producers were selected to participate in a training of trainers. It focused on creating a group of skilled trainers who could share the EcoLea production method with others in Guatemala and other Spanish-speaking countries. is training took place in Solol in November. Legacy Foundation co-directors Joyce and Richard Stanley, who provided similar trainings in Asia, Africa, Europe and the U.S., conducted the ...continued page 84e EcoLea ProjectAn innovative, sustainable alternative to wood as fuel.ECOLOGY by Joyce Stanley photos: Peter Stanley

Sit quietly, breathe deeply, meditate inward, and appreciate the rhythm of your heartbeat. e thumping sound you hear is the mitral and aortic valves of your heart opening and closing to allow your blood to ow like a river of healing energy. Every day, the heart pumps about 2,000 gallons, or 7,500 liters, of blood through these chambers, then throughout 60,000 miles of blood vessels. e heart beats about 100,000 times per day to supply all 75 trillion cells in the body with freshly oxygenated blood Four heart chambers work in unison: two atria, or entrance halls in Latin, and two ventricles, meaning little belly or panza chica, below them. e hearts contractions force blood through the three leaets of the aortic valve to the bodys primary artery, the aorta. More importantly, the leaets snap shut to block a leakage of blood back into the left ventricle. Delicate valves can suer from stenosis, becoming blocked by calcication or hardening, so that they constrict the blood ow. Others become oppy and inecient, allowing for regurgitation, typically known as a leaky heart valve. Replacement aortic heart valves could be mechanical, made from incredibly durable substances that can exist within the body without infection. Bioprosthetics are biological valve replacements, made from tissue from the patient or a donor. Our day starts early at UNICAR Cardiac Surgery Hospital in Guatemala City. By 7 a.m., todays patient is calm and prepared, ready to undergo open-heart surgery, an aortic valve replacement. e operating room, or theatre to our British friends, is exactly that.

42 our hearts continue to be active, healthy and rhythmic. Imagine. Its important to note that some people experience no symptoms, not even a tiny heart murmur, and still live with the threat of severe aortic valve disease. Without timely surgical intervention, a patient could experience major complications, like an enlarged heart muscle, potentially leading to congestive heart failure. If your doctor recommends a heart valve replacement, be sure to investigate the level of insurance coverage you can depend on, because without nancial assistance, prices for open heart surgery can exceed $150,000 in the United States. In Guatemala, you can depend on medical providers with the same surgical skills and technology as the best hospitals worldwide. is superior medical attention, plus VIP personal care with your medical advocate, will likely cost you less than $25,000. Breathe deeply, consider carefully and follow your heart. Every day, the heart creates enough energy to drive a truck 20 miles. In a lifetime, that is equivalent to driving to the moon and back. When the body is at rest, it takes only six seconds for the blood to go from the heart to the lungs and back, only eight seconds for it to go the brain and back, and only 16 seconds for it to reach the toes and travel all the way back to the heart. A kitchen faucet would need to be turned on all the way for at least 45 years to equal the amount of blood pumped by the heart in an average lifetime. Five percent of blood supplies the heart, 15-20% goes to the brain and central nervous system, and 22% goes to the kidneys. In 1929, German surgeon Werner Forssmann (1904-1979) examined the inside of his own heart by threading a catheter into his arm vein and pushing it 20 inches and into his heart, inventing cardiac catheterization, a now common procedure.

54 There is really only one way to learn how to cook, and that is by doing. No amount of poring over Julia Childs method for browning mushrooms is going to give you a proper understanding of what she wants to convey in color and texture. Nor will browsing the intoxicatingly delectable-looking photos in Bon Appetit, Fine Cooking or any other magazine.To really know how to cook, you have to get your hands dirty, literally, with earth-dusted vegetables and sanguine-colored cuts of meat fresh from the butcher. Luckily for the doer, cooking is one of those tactile acts where the reward is worth the eort. Nowhere is this more evident than in the kitchen at La Pea del Sol, a La Antigua Guatemala eatery and music venue, where a couple of Saturdays ago I stood with three merry companions, bumbling through a lesson in torteando or the art of making tortillas. Two Saturdays a month, eager comida tpicamaster wannabes gather in the La Pea del Sol kitchen and place their faith in the expert hands of owner Mary Waggener and her team of culinary maestras. e class begins in the airy main room of Pea.

To our credit, my groups only challenge with the latter was the tortilla making, which looks simple enough but is incredibly dicult for unaccustomed hands. After letting us suer throwing masa from one hand to the other, Waggener shared her secret method with us (which shall remain a secret, unless you take the class, of course) for foolproof, perfectly round and springy tortillas. Even if everything doesnt turn out perfect, the results of your eorts in the kitchen are usually worth it, whether under Peas supervision or in your own kitchen. At the end of class, Waggener will give you the recipes to try at home. Even though the chile rellenos were not-so-uniform, and the tortillas resembled a mountain of puzzle pieces, the meal we shared with Waggener and crew at the end of our lesson was all the more sweet because we knew we had contributed and dirtied our hands.

Antiguas hermandades have ourished through their hard work. Dierent hermandades are in charge of the various processions, including the velaciones in the churches, decorations for the oats, signing up cucurruchos (men) and cargadoras (women) for the processions through the sale of turns (usually about Q20-Q75 each) and coordinating that each turn has the same shoulder height. Indeed, these processions, with thousands of carriers each, are organized without a glitch. It is a tradition passed on from generation to generation; newcomers are invited, as all Catholics are welcome to sign up for any and all processions. It is common to see more than 7,000 carriers for each of the four processions on Good Friday. Each hermandad proudly wears a different dress, a tradition also inspired from Europe. While many consider Lent a time of penance, many also consider it a time for personal reection, as Guatemala is an extremely religious and spiritual country. Semana Santa cont. from page 13

Walk down any given street with an openness to enjoying time and you will ef fortlessly nd it waiting for you.

From street vendors to visitors, people tend to relax more while immersed in the charm of Guatemala. is can have both an upside and a po tential downside, as it is a reminder that we should be clear about how we chose to spend our time.

70 Famous for its breathtaking Mayan ruins, Guatemala has great archaeological potential for future studies, scholars say, but university tuition is beyond the reach of many potential archaeology students, especially those from indigenous families. ats why leaders of the Archaeology Department at the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala (UVG) are appealing for donations to help students from families with limited resources to study archaeology. Currently such students cannot aord to start the program because of the ve-5year commitment to obtain the degree of Licenciatura en Arqueologa. UVG archaeologist Marion Popenoe Hatch, who received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, set up the UVG Archaeology Department in 1982 and has worked since the 1970s researching the Takalik Abaj site. In October 2012, archaeologists announced the discovery of the oldest Mayan royal tomb yet found in Mesoamerica, 2,500 years old, claiming that this makes Takalik Abaj the cradle of Mayan culture. Dr. Hatch spends a week each month at the site. She analyzed and dated the items found in the royal tomb, conrmed by a radio carbon dating test by a Miami, FL lab. In addition to Takalik Abaj, Dr. Hatch and UVG colleagues are actively excavating, with Tulane University, the Site Q, also called La Corona. ey are working on a new site at Semetabaj, above Lake Atitln, which will become a tourist destination, and digitizing the valuable archive of the late Tikal eld director Edwin Shook, for use in modern explorations. Dr. Hatch, along with Archaeology Department Director Toms Barrientos, one of the graduates of the UVG program, said funding is urgently needed to open doors to Studying Archaeology in Guatemala ED UC ATI ON text/photos by Tomas Cernikovskye search is on for student funding at the Universidad del Valle de GuatemalaArchaeology class at UVG

72 more students. e program is the only one in Guatemala that provides multi-lingual scientic training in archaeology, which is essential, because the majority of bibliographic references are published in English. e UVG archaeology course promotes critical thinking and a broad based coursework preparation, she explained. e course prepares its graduates for work as investigator, museum curator and expert in Mesoamerican archeology. It teaches the theory of archaeology, the techniques of exploration and excavation of sites, classication and analysis of ceramics and burial grounds discovered and how to use the evidence to explain the past. In general, graduates of the UVG course are currently directing active archaeological projects and work in museums, carrying out research and publishing to advance the archaeological knowledge in Guatemala. Barrientos further explained that Archaeology Department enrollment is relatively small, on average 20 students with ve to six new students every year. Being a small department, it allows us to oer a personal education that also maximizes all educational resources that we have. Our students come from all parts of the country and even from other countries of Central America. Recognizing that many worthy causes seek public support, Barrientos said that donating to scholarships for archaeology studies at UVG will generate numerous long-term benets for the economy and society overall. e main reason (to donate) is because Guatemala is a country with a great archaeological potential, he explained. Archaeology is one of the many underdeveloped activities that will contribute to the future improvement of the country, in terms of opening new economic activities such as tourism. Supporting the education in archaeology will produce better professionals that need to tell the true history of Guatemala, bringing pride to our past as the basis for the future. Nevertheless, many young people, especially Maya, who want to study archaeology at UVG have to give up because of economic limitations. Despite the availability of dierent nancial aids at UVG, there is much need of a direct support coming from donations, whether through individuals or institutions, Barrientos said.

I believe that everybody has a responsibility to do what is within their reach to honor a healthy environment. Woods art will be shown at the Panza Verde Art Gallery in La Antigua Guate mala, opening on March 13th at 5 p.m. His work can also be seen at www.kenneth woodpaper.com organic landscapes. ese wall sculptures reveal them selves, he explains. My job is to open up the space for it to happen. e joy of working with recycled mate rial is twofold: Wood not only turns trash into art while contributing to a cleaner hab itat, but his work also oers employment to young adults with handicaps. Living at Lake Atitln sensitizes one to the beautiful and fragile environment. Though humans suer no harm, there are many foods that are very dangerous to your dogs and cats, most especially grapes, raisins/currants, caeine, chocolate, xylitol, onions, garlic, chives and leeks. Chocolate and cocoa: Bakers chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa powder and gourmet dark chocolates are more toxic than milk chocolate. A few M&Ms or a bite of a chocolate-chip cookie are unlikely to cause problems. Very young pets, geriatric pets and those with underlying disease are at higher risk for poisoning. Due to the large amount of fat in chocolate, some pets may develop pancreatitis (inammation of the pancreas) after eating chocolate or baked goods containing chocolate. Symptoms: Small amounts of chocolate may cause mild vomiting and diarrhea. Larger amounts can cause severe agitation, tachycardia (elevated heart rate), abnormal heart rhythms, tremors, seizures and collapse. If the signs are mild (slight stomach upset or restlessness), the prognosis is good. Treatment: At home, induce vomiting. Administer 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide (3%) per 10 pounds and aim it at the back of your pets throat. If nothing has happened within 15 min, repeat the procedure. If nothing happens after 3 tries, call your veterinarianimmediately.Food Poisoning Part II

76 I enjoy working with palm because it is found locally and it is the traditional material used by the people here. Plus using palm for artisan goods does not damage the environment, said Catarina Tamup de Leon, leader of the Palm Weavers, when asked about why she loves her work. e Palm Weavers group is located in the Highlands of Guatemala and includes over 60 members from 10 neighboring villages. ey joined together in 2002, forming a cooperative to diversify their products and increase their ability to meet demand. Working together they are able to share designs and skills, while increasing production. e group is a cooperative, so the women meet to get their assignments and share ideas, but they are able to work at their houses. is is great for the women because it allows them to generate income and contribute to the family nancially while tending to their usual household chores and caring for their children. e group makes a variety of products from hats, to coin purses, to bags, to boxes, baskets and more. Its members are always looking for ways to enhance their work and create new products using their design skills and knowledge of the palm; the palm is collected by the women in small groups. Catarina lives with her mother and 15-year-old daughter in a small cozy house near a river. She uses her income from sales to support her mother and pay for her daughter, who wants to become a teacher, to attend the local vocational school. I am very pleased that my work has enabled me to support my mother and provide my daughter with the opportunity to continue her education, Catarina proudly explained. While Catarina enjoys making a variety of products, her favorite things to make are bags and purses. ey are the most dicult but also leave the most room for innovation and new designs. I like the challenge and love coming up with new ideas, Catarina said. When asked about her dreams for the future Catarina said, I hope that our cooperative will grow and learn new things in order to benet all of the women in the group, empowering them to live out their dreams and support their children through their craft.

86 N ios de Guatemala cont. from page 19 Personal hygiene is part of the curriculum Lunchtime is an important part of the day For more information about donating to or volunteering at Nios de Guatemala, email megan@ninosdeguatemala.org. For more information about Cambio Spanish School, email sam@ninosdeguatemala.orge Spanish school, which is run by Mr. Datlof, is another step in helping to secure Nios nancial security. A for-prot company started last fall, Cambio oers Spanishlanguage programs on par with some of the best schools in Antigua. On the day I visited, students were having lessons on the beautiful and tranquil terraza, located outside the Nios oces. All courses are with private teachers with classes lasting in the four-hour-a-day range. At the end of the year, all of the prot from Cambio is donated to Nios. While not completely nancially independent, Nios has a goal to take over 20% of school operating costs every year. As of now it is at 80% for Ciudad Vieja. And with the combined eorts of Cambio, outside donors, and the Ciudad Vieja tour and Padrino programs, Nios is well on its way to nancial independence. Nowhere is it more evident than here in Guatemala that it truly does take a village to raise a child! are less likely to pull their children out of classes to work in the elds picking coee. Nios also runs community programs in subjects ranging from hygiene to English classes to computer skills. It recently started a pilot of the program Crianza con Cario, to teach parents how to raise their children without violence. And while Nios still has the support of its parent group in the Netherlands, its organizers felt there was more to be done locally to create nancial stability. So they began e Experience Guatemala Tour which oers tours of Ciudad Vieja. In addition, the Padrino pro gram was established whereby businesses and individuals agree to sponsor tuition for one child to attend a Nios school. Sponsors are encouraged to take an active role in that childs educational life by checking up on grades and school activities, thereby becoming a positive reinforcement outside the childs family and community circles. But there is still more to be done. When asked why the Cambio Spanish School came to be, Mr. Datlof said, We [thought] it was really important to have sustainable sources of income rather than being dependent on the largesse of foreign donors.

In the north side of Roatan, the reef is separated at shore by a shallow lagoon, less than a kilometer wide, usually. e crest can sometimes be easy to nd; on occasion, it breaks or almost breaks the waters surface; from this point on the reef slopes down to a plateau, which is followed by the reef wall. Sponges, elkhorn coral and sea fans are the beginning of the vast marine life that thrives on the north side of the reef. e south side slopes out smoothly until it reaches the edge of the wall, anywhere from 10-30 meters, from which it drops to a sandy bottom decorated by a rich growth of colorful, soft corals. For those seeking the best of both worlds, the western end of the island, where the north and south side meet, is the place to go; here the reef shows characteristics of both formations. Popular dive sites in Roatan are found in the Sandy Bay Marine Reserve, a protectedby Monish Welcome

Reefs on the northern, eastern and southern side of Roatan also have many infrequently visited sites with amazing marine life. For suggestions, just stay at a resort along the way and ask locals and dive shops. A famous dive is Hole in the Wall, just around the bend from Half Moon Bay on the way to Sandy Bay. On the upper reef there is a steep sand chute where you can cruise down through a cleft to the hole; it pops out on the reef wall around 40 meters. is is one of the places where the Cayman Trench comes closest to Roatan, and very dark waterdepth around 800 metersis seen below.

Toms an artist from Atlan ta, delighted by all he encountered here, but especially pleased to uncover a sense of timelessness in Guatemala. Meanwhile, historian Elizabeth Bells mother came back to her home in La An tigua Guatemala after a 30-year absence. Alice Bell was astounded by the changes, delighted to nd warehouse stores, cable TV, varied restaurants, cell phones, and rows of parked motorcycles among so many new attractions. She really appreciated the enhanced comforts of life here. Whos right? Both, of course. Anti gua has changed since Alice left us for the States, and Antigua stayed the same for Toms rst visit. Strip o the red and white soft drink and phone service signs and the centuries of adobe walls are unchanged. Let the breezes wash away the exhausts of mod ern trac and the gentle Antigua air is as soft as ever. Forget the new one-way streets, parking permits, tourist novelties, and its the same Antigua. Timeless. A sense of timelessness hangs in the air as the bells call for evening prayers, led as always by the Cathedrals rst ringing. Timeless odors of incense and of crushed pine needles oat from Lenten processions. Slow drums pace those processions, as they have since well before Christian times. Col orful oral petals cover the cobbled streets in a timeless display of tradition. Toms right. A sense of timelessness is right here, just behind the pizza delivery bikes and the merchants of ne wines, new features that pleased Alice obscuring but never hiding the traditional that at tracted artist Toms eye. is season is the very best time to savor the new luxuries, while seeking the timeless traditions of Guatemalan life. Enjoy every bit. TimelessSENSUOUS GUATEMALA by Ken VerondaTimeless ..
