14 revuemag.com The colonial property of the Jesuit order Compaa de Jess in San tiago de los Caballeros, now La An tigua Guatemala, is and has been alive and well. It was so colorful and complete, says Antigea artist Annette Weld, who ar rived in 1966. e property was then used as the public market, where she used to sit for hours sketching, with the arches like a theater backdrop. e market had been moved from Plaza Mayor to the Jesuit ruins at 4a calle and 6a avenida in 1912. Considerable demolition was necessary to make the area safe, with the result that the convent and school buildings have been considerably altered and rebuilt, making it well nigh impossible to make out the original plan, wrote Sidney Markman in Colonial Architecture of Antigua Guatemala (1966). e market relocated again after the 1976 earthquake, and in 1992 restoration of the multi-patio, square-block property began, through combined eorts of the governments of Guatemala and Spain, the National Coun cil for the Protection of Antigua (Consejo), UNESCO and Cooperacin Espaola. Until 2004, artisan shops covered with ugly black plastic lled the space alongside the church on 4a calle and the front plaza, completely blocking view of the faade. It was one of the most colorful and splendid of the conventual churches of Santiago,deco rated with colors on plaster, using red, green, yellow, brown and black, which resulted in an eect completely dierent from any other church in the city. (Annis, Architecture of Antigua Guatemala, 1543-1773 1968) Today the complex houses a cultural train ing and exhibit center, including a library. e Escuela Taller Antigua for local students age 16-20 enjoys newly constructed facilities on the west side and workshop areas in the nave of the church ruins. e school teaches skills in carpentry, construction, ironwork, electricity and plumbing for use in restoration projects to protect cultural heritage.

revuemag.com 15 It seems a tting rebirth of the property of the Jesuit order Compaa de Jess. e role of the Jesuitswas of great importance for the city and the Kingdom, wrote Jess Mara Garca Aoveras in Historia General de Guatemala, Vol. II (1994). e Jesuits dedicated themselves in Guatemala exclu sively to educational workand did not participate in works of evangelization of the indgena . Yet even Bishop Francisco Marroquns petitions to the royal Spanish powers that were for funds to establish a public school had been turned down. In his last letter, written to the king in Spain in February 1563 before his death in April of that year, he reviewed his work and achievements but reminded of the lack of a school for all sciencesof which I have written many times. ( El Licenciado Don Francisco Mar roqun 1964). Perhaps there was concern that the Jesuit order have sucient funds to sustain the monks and the school, because of their custom to give the teaching free. Apparently in 1582, the Jesuits began some primary classes of reading and gram mar without waiting for support from the king, there being no lack of local philan thropists. Finally in 1607, two priests of Compaa de Jess came from Mexico to formally establish the monastery, church and Colegio de San Lucas. As other reli gious had done, they lived in thatch huts while they waited for construction. ere were 14 priests by the time the rst small, permanent church structure was completed in 1626. It was rebuilt 20 years later with a generous donation. By 1640, then teaching arts, philosophy and theol ogy, the Colegio had acquired great fame and had no rivalere came the most se lect of society of Santiago. ( Historia Gen eral de Guatemala ) By the end of the 17th century the Jesuits had founded the Colegio de San Francisco de Borja, across the street from the monastery complex. And, the church having been destroyed in the 1695 earthquake, an entirely new building was inaugurated in 1698, the remains of which stand today, on the site where conquistador historian Bernal Daz de Castillo lived. Another earthquake struck in 1717 and another in 1751. While the Jesuits patched up, continued construction, repaired again and expanded, they also acquired lands on which to grow crops to sustain the schools. Later, proceeds were sent to sustain the Je suits in exile. In the same year construction was nally complete, the order of King Charles III for the expulsion of the Jesuits from all Spanish territories reached Santiago. For some time there had been fear that, as a result of the free education of the Jesuits, an elite class would develop from the farmers and labor ers, elevated above their cradle rights, according to Memoria para la Reforma de las Universidades (1667). e Compaa de C olorfully painted arch over church entrance

16 revuemag.com Jess was seen as a center of social and educational power. e Jesuits had shown no disrespect for the Crown or the Papacy. But their intellectualism brought indepen dence, which, whether real or perceived, together with a myth of incredible riches posed a threat, even in the Age of Enlight enment. Studies later showed the riches were not as great as thought, and income had been well managed for its intended use. ( Historia General de Guatemala ) e townspeople were devastated when, on a July morning in 1767, the dozen or so monks were ushered by armed guards to the coast, where they boarded a boat and sailed away, never to return. eir aban doned monastery, church and school were hit again by earthquake in 1773, remaining walls but echoes of past splendor.Among the echoes is one of Santiagos nest, Rafael Landvar, born in 1731. He had entered the Jesuit order in 1750 in Mexico and returned to Guatemala to teach where he had learned as a boy, in the Colegio de San Lucas and then as rector of Colegio de San Francisco de Borja. Land var undoubtedly enjoyed one of the grand and spacious apartments within the mon astery, which housed very few compared to the hundreds within the contemporary monasteries of the Franciscans, Domini cans and Mercedarians. After sailing from port to port, being turned away by papal order, the Jesuits set tled in Italy, where Landvar lived out his life. In his journey as a youth from Guate mala to Mexico and later on to California territory, on foot of course, he thrilled to natures beauty and ...continued on page 72 LEFT: Painting by artist Annette Weld of public market, when it was on former Jesuit propertyABOVE: C urrent photo of patio where the public market was held

From drink ing it, her children would suer from fre quent stomach problems. But today, you wont nd her little Janet getting severe diarrhea anymore. Unlike the 1.3 million young children around the world who die from contaminated water each year,1 the Gonzlez children now have access to clean drinking water, thanks to the Ecoltro, a clay-based lter produced in La Antigua. e Ecoltro is the brainchild of Dr. Fernando Mazariegos, a Guatemalan chem ist who was given the challenge of nding a way to purify water in an eective, eco logical and aordable manner. After 800 prototypes, he developed a gravity-based ceramic lter made from clay and sawdust and coated with colloidal silver, a natural anti-bacterial. With its controlled pore size, the Ecoltro allows water to pass but traps bacteria, parasitic cysts, fecal residues, smell and color. e Ecoltro is not only eective but simple to use. e user has only to pour wa ter into the container, and the water lters at a rate of one to two liters ...continued on page 96Water Rightsby Christine Keilhauer photos by Darcie BeyerLocal organization develops a solution to the age-old challenge of providing clean drinking water.

La situacin poltica de Guatemala en los aos ochenta lo oblig a trasladarse a Costa Rica, pas en donde comenz una profesin que hoy lo reconoce como fundador de F&G, una de las editoriales ms importantes de Guatemala, y como presidente de la Gre mial de Editores de Guatemala y de la or ganizacin de la quinta Feria Internacional del Libro en Guatemala (FILGUA). Ral, en 1993 fundaste F&G editores, ne gocio que se antoja de corta durabilidad en pases como el nuestro. Fue un lega do de tu familia el mundo de los libros? No. De nio en mi casa no haba libros. Cuando estaba en segundo de primaria lleg al pueblo un vendedor de libros de matemti cas, mi profesor de primer ao lo mand a mi casa y sufr cuando mi mam no le compr nada. Pero lo curioso es que aunque no haba libros en casa, haba un cuaderno en donde mi mam escriba los poemas que le gus taban y los leamos; mi hermano mayor era acionado a las historietas mexicanas y estas tambin eran parte de mis lecturas infantiles. Sin embargo, creo que mi ejemplo a seguir fue un primo que cuando yo tena seis aos, l ya era maestro. Lo acompa algunas veces a su clase en un pueblo cerca del mo, en una bicicleta y sobre un camino largo de tierra; ms tarde estudi pedagoga, daba clases de ingls y era rbitro de futbol. En su casa haba una gran biblioteca en donde le a muchos de los clsicos, y fue a partir de entonces que me acione no slo a la lectura, sino al peor vicio que tengo: comprar libros. ...Contina en la pgina 44 /.La literatura nos ayuda a construir la identidad nacional.Ral Figueroa Sarti

Cuan do tena 14 aos escrib una novela que no s qu se hizo, cuando tena 17 escriba poemas pues s, a veces me dan ganas de escribir, pero s que tendra que trabajar mucho para hacerlo bien, y la verdad es que cuando leo material de gente que lo sabe hacer, entonces lo pienso mucho. Es difcil mantener una editorial in dependiente en Guatemala? El mundo del libro es uno, y las mismas di cultades que enfrentamos aqu las enfren tan los editores independientes en Espaa y en cualquier pas. Qu tanto ha cambiado el mbito editorial en Guatemala desde que fundaste F&G? Yo comenc F&G como una empresa de servicios editoriales con el plan de conver tirla en una casa editorial. En aquel tiempo se conoca muy poco el trabajo de edicin. Escritores, y sobre todo las instituciones, slo mandaban sus libros a la imprenta. Al principio result complicado abrirnos ese espacio. Ahora ya se conoce en Guatemala que editar un libro no es sacar mil copias en una imprenta.

52 revuemag.com by Dwight Wayne Coopmaddogwriter@yahoo.com.sg The Zen of(Not) KnowingCARTOON BY DWIGHT WAYNE COOPSaying know is one of those things you start studying in Spanish 101, and then go through the rest of your life never quite mastering. If you took 101 when you were 28 (like I did), then you might hope to be wrong no more than once every hundred tries. e two principal verbs are saber and conocer ; and you soon make the unfortunate discovery that saber is one of the six most irregular verbs in the language. Its yo form (present tense) is s as in say what? is form is also scary for its resemblance to that most troubling word, se We would expect the form to be sabo, and indeed there are highland folk in Mesoamerica and the Andes who say this, including my own sister-in-law. But if you are still saying sabo in Spanish 102, then youd best not major in languages (oh, and conocer is a little weird, too). Another saber difculty is that in one past tense (imperfect), it means knew, but in another (preterite), it means found out. Yo no lo saba sobre Pepe y Amy, pero leugo lo supe But generally, saber is about knowledge, and conocer about familiarity. If you know Joeyin both senses: (a) acquaintance and (b) awareness of his attitudes, tastes, or his next move (If I know Joey)then you say conozco a Pepe To see if someone knows Dostoevskys novels, youd ask Conoces a Dostoevsky? I worry about the people in my hometown, Panajachel, who conocen a Elvis In the African wilds, it helps to know Swahili. So if your tour bus breaks down and you see famished lions on one side and spear-toting Masai warriors on the other, how do you ask the Spanish tour guide, Do you know Swahili? Sabes suajili? If you ask, conoces suajili? this might be understood as, have you heard of suajili? (the answer would have to be yes, since its the ocial language of much of Africa). To know carnally (biblically) is conocer; but keep in mind that this is a euphemism replacing an older euphemism (to enter in unto her tent) for coitus. To know how (to do something) is simply saber not saber como. Sabes preparar las albndigas? (Do you know how to make meatballs?) ere are times when we must choose saber or conocer where wed not even say know in English. For instance, have you been to Duluth is not has estado a Duluth? but conoces Duluth? We even use conocer where in English wed use meet, if the meeting is rst-time. My friend, author Bonnie Dilger, almost met Castro on her trip to Cuba. So I asked her, conociste a Fidel? e expression, Good question! (or God only knows!) uses ...continued on page 94

In exile he expressed his nos talgia in poetry. His 5,300-verse Rusticatio Mexicana written in Latin and as scien tic as poetic, took the name of Guatemala through all the literary centers of the very learned Italy of the 18th century and other European nations, wrote Jos Mata Gavidia ( Landvar, El Poeta de Guatemala 1967). Eorts of University of San Carlos students in 1949 succeeded in the repatriation of Landvar from Italy and putting his remains to rest in a monument on Alameda Santa Luca, adjacent to the house of his birth. His words in bronze counsel to discover the secrets of nature. In 1961 the University Rafael Landvar was founded.

We all make commitments to have or to do cer tain thingsto purchase a house, a new car, take a yearly holiday, nd more fullling employment, graduate from college, marry, become a parent. All of us, at some point in our lives, have wanted something and made it happen. e results you get in your life are due to your commitments. Just look at the life youve created. at is the power of commitmentit has given you all the things that you now have. If you dont like what you see, its probably because you didnt consciously choose many of the things that are there. It can be a real revelation to realize that you have unconsciously been committed to many things you really would rather not have in your life! Its worth contemplating where these commitments originated. Which ones are truly your own and which are those of other people, per haps a parent or a spouse? How many come from deeply rooted beliefs? For example, a core belief such as I dont deserve happiness can become an unconscious commitment to unhappiness. All commitments are treated equally and are manifested in our lives with the same force! As ich Nhat Hanh says, ere are thousands of channels in our consciousness; its up to us to choose the channel. erefore, free yourself to make your own conscious commitments. Instead of focusing only on external ones, remember to include those that we often overlook, like creating conscious loving relationships, increasing waves of awareness and to express gratitude for the abundance that surrounds us. Devotion to our commitments requires uniting our bodies, our hearts and our spir its. This is what true conscious commitments are about. Deng Ming-Dao said, Our path becomes like a crooked one made straight.

For that theres the zenny verb ignorar Zenny, because its that rare false cognate that not only diers in meaning, but is potentially opposite. Whereas ignorar means simply to not know, to ignore means to know, but do nothing. And, since it is about knowledge or wisdom (instead of familiarity), it is more the antonym of saber than of conocer. In rst person, no saber seems preferred to ignorar, and ignorar seems preferred for third person. No supimos del eclipse, y ellos tambin lo ignoraraban e adjective igno rante also exists.

With the new Anti-Evasion Law this area is thorny, and it is best to consult an attorney.  Why a Separate Corporation? Everything in this series of articles on real estate points to the advisability of owning property in Guatemala through a corporation. Anonymity, tax relief on sale, nationalization, or naturalization of foreign-owned property in areas restricted to Guatemalan ownership, and nally cost point not only to a corporate ownership structure but to ownership by a foreign corporation. A Guatemalan corporation must make monthly tax lings, even if there is no activity. is is a lucrative business for the mostly high school-trained corps of accounting peritos but is a nuisance that may cost a foreigner up to $100 a month. Foreign corporations are exempt from monthly ling, and a Bahamian, Caribbean or Panamanian corporation not only costs less to establish than a Guatemalan equivalent, but can be considerably cheaper and less hassle to maintain on an annual basis.  So the answer to Register or not to regis ter? is, Yes, denitely, but preferably through a foreign domiciled corporation.

As the pet ages and cognitive dysfunction becomes more severe, dogs can actually experience an increase of activity resulting in aimless wandering and pacing, especially at night. Studies have reported that 75 percent of dogs 7 years and older have at least one sign associated with cognitive dysfunction. e best thing to do is to talk with your veterinarian to rule out any other medical condition and start by supplementing your dogs diet with antioxidants and essential fatty acids either through an improved senior diet or through supplementing the existing diet. When necessary, there are prescription drugs are available.  Although genes play a role in determining which dogs will eventually develop cognitive dysfunc tion, you can keep your pets brain active and healthy by providing a good diet and environmental enrichment activities, such as food puzzles and other games.

112 revuemag.comWilliam Shakespeare may never have been confronted with that question, but if you are a property owner in Guatemala you certainly are. e answer is a resounding Yes! ... But! ere are basically two levels of property registration, the General Property Registry (Registro General de la Propiedad) and the Municipal Cadastral or Catastral Municipal (Catastro Municipal). A municipal cadastral, which is essentially a land survey, may not exist, especially in the smallest of Guatemalas 330+ municipalities, with the function delegated to a hopefully nearby larger municipal center. e General Property Registry is chiey concerned with ownership information such as mortgages, easements, usufruct grants etc. e cadastral is chiey concerned with location and valuation for local tax assessment. ere is a third registry, called OCRET (Ocina de Control de Reservas Territoriales del Estado), which is a separate entity dealing with registry (and taxation) of waterfront and other properties with state restrictions on ownership, access or development. OCRET is currently engaged in an aggressive enrollment campaign. A property owner cannot be compelled to register a property on the General Registry, but there are compelling reasons to do so. Registry is required if the property is to be used as collateral for a mortgage or other loan, and registry may turn out to be a crucial deciding factor should an ownership dispute arise. Municipal registry is mostly used for real estate tax assessment and is not binding legally in the event of a property dispute. In existence since 1871, the General Property Registry still has only two ofces, one in the capital and one in Quetzaltenango. Initial property registration is a relatively simple process, with proof of title, usually in the form of an escritura pblica (a notarized purchase and sale agreement) as the primary document. ere is only a modest cost for registration, usually at a rate of Q 100 plus Q1.5 per thousand on the value of the contract. For example if you sell a property for Q100,000 the registration fee would be about Q250. Or if you put a mortgage on it for Q50,000, it would cost about Q175. is is the general rule, although there are operations that cost less. For example, once you pay the mortgage and you want to cancel it, it would cost about a quarter of the original fee. Since the General Registry has historically been, and continues to be a vehicle for chicaneryalbeit at a lower level of activity than in prior yearsif you entrust your property to a third party to eect the registry that party must be of your utmost condence. e initially registered value (if applicable; see below) will constitute the tax basis for the application of VAT at a current rate of 12 percent if the property To Register or not to Register?at is the questionby Carlisle JohnsonREAL ESTATE IN GUATEMALAe pros and cons and options of property registration

(I have a property in New Hampshire that uses an 18th century stone wall, still standing, as a reference). GPS is not used at present, although more modern initial and updated measurements use azimuths.  ere are other pertinent issues in registering, many of which doubly apply to foreign owners of property. Chief among these is anonymity. Do you really want casual researchers to know your name and the name of property(ies) you own?

116 revuemag.com As the tourism infrastructure improves, El Salvadors emerging tourist industry continues to experience an increase in the growth of new hotels and restaurants. But rarely do we nd a place that takes the extra steps to make the least possible impact on nature, while engaging the local community. Barra de Santiago is a long peninsula covered with palm groves, separated from the mainland and mangrove forests by a beautiful estuary. From the banks of the estuary you see an impressive volcanic mountain range stretching from Vol can de Agua in Guatemala to the Izalco Volcano in the west. e lush mangroves are home to a wide range of birds, sh, shrimp and crab species. e area is also the scene of a new environmental conscience in tourism that should be a model for all establishments engaged in protecting natural resources. A stellar example is Joseph Schwab, who came from the U.S. to recover from an often-lethal brain cancer at a friends beach house at Barra de Santiago. Mr. Schwab experienced a paradisiacal place at a crucial time in his life and decided to make a dierence in this world. His goal was to create a recreational establishment that would have the least possible impact on nature and create projects to help make up for the destruction already caused by mankind. He and his wife Cornelia, with the help of his Salvadoran friend, Daniel Guttfreund, created the La Cocotera re sort, at the eastern side of the Barra de Santiago peninsula. e hotel, which recently opened, has a pool that uses a special salt lter and does not contain any chlorine or other chemicals (the rst one in El Salvador). e hotel has its very own state-of-the-art wastewater recycling system. e treated water is later reused to water plants on the property, and Prime Eco-Tourism project opens in El Salvador at Barra de Santiagoby Lena Johannessen Going Green Going Green

Situated between the Pacic Ocean and the estuary, La Cocotera oers visitors a variety of water sports, including kayaking, water skiing, surng and deep-sea shing. e resort participates in the catch-and-release program of the Billsh Foundation, in which marlin (swordsh) get a microchip inserted before it is released back into the water. e microchip tracks travel patterns to study the species. La Cocotera also supports the local community by buying kitchen supplies and local crafts, such as hammocks. Guest can get a tour of the local school and learn how to make tortillas the local way. (e fee is donated to the school.) Barra de Santiago has one of the best turtle beaches in the country. La Cocotera safely releases thousands of Olive Ridley turtles each year. Guests can participate in this wonderful event and set baby turtles free in the ocean. La Barra de Santiago is also a haven for birds from all over the world. You can paddle a kayak into the estuary and spot birds from as far away as Antarctica. Another ongoing project is the species reintroduction program. La Cocotera is the proud sponsor of El Salvadors ocial program to reintroduce the scarlet macaw into the country. Guests can learn all about this exciting program and meet people involved in the project. e resort has only three bungalows and a maximum capacity of 18 persons, ensuring that the beach of Barra de Santiago is solitary and peaceful; a visit here is guaranteed to be a trip away from the crowds.

Dr. Bjork, along with Dr. Oliver Komar from Salvanatura, are in charge of the project locally. A biologist and park ranger work full time tracking down trees and plants that this species needs for its survival. e feasibility study will take one to three years; if results are favorable, additional funding will allow for an expansion of the project. In 2004 a group of neighbors in and around the villages of Barra de Santiago and Zapote (Ahuachapn) formed the Asociacin Barra de Santiago, which has been promoting health, educational and environmental pro grams in these coastal communities. Working with other community organizations as well as schools and health centers, the association has conducted a series of projects, including a cleanup campaign, recycling, school vegetable gardens, adult literacy and sea turtle protection. e group also promotes the production of hammocks, and arts and crafts. Last year the association designed, nanced and coordinated a project that was carried out by the local school in Zapote which won rst prize in the school category in the National Prize for Environment by the Ministry of Environment in El Salvador. e hydroponic vegetable gardens of the El Zapote school produce tomatoes, green pep pers, cucumbers and more, with the vegetables being used for school lunches for over 300 children during the school year.
