12 Its esta time again in La Antigua Guatemala! July 25th is our patron saints daySt. Jamesas the city was founded as Santiago de Guatemala. St. James was an apostle, the conquerors patron saint and is Spains patron saint today. e Spanish named many cities after Santiago. When the Spanish formed towns in Guatemala in the 1540s, each town received a patron saint and a corresponding esta. When Pedro de Alvarado came from Mexico to conquer Guatemala in 1523, he founded the rst capital (near Iximch) as Santiago de Guatemala. at capital was moved to San Miguel Escobar/Ciudad Vieja in 1527 and then, after mudslides, moved to what is now La Antigua Guatemala in 1541-43. e third capital (also named Santiago de Guatemala) was moved from what is now called La Antigua Guatemala (the Old Guatemala) to present day Guatemala City in 1773-74. La Antigua maintains its holiday in honor of St. James on July 25th, and the celebration begins now! Guatemala City changed names and patron saints and celebrates the Virgin of Ascension (August 15th). Considered VERY important for residents, celebrations were simple up through the 1970s. e main activities still include a ceremony in City Hall on the 24th to declare Antigeos Distinguidos. is year, the school parade will be held on July 25th at 8 a.m. with a wide variety of schools and somewhat of a competition among school bands as they make their way to the citys stadium. e 3 p.m. procession in honor of St. James departs from San Jos Catedral and returns to the same church at about 5:30 p.m. City Hall will sponsor an array of concerts, baile de gigantes and reworks throughout the day and evening! In the 1980s, while working at the National Council for the Protection of La Antigua Guatemala, we began a cultural calendar for the entire month for Antigua. is includes promoting local artists, musicians and an appreciation of the citys heritage particularly through dierent school contests. Other groups participate with sports events and all sorts of fun. Highlights include a lecture on July 9th at 3 p.m.; Ancdotas Antigeas; a concert, El Tercer Ensamble Coral Interuniversitario, on the 12th at 5 p.m.; and an art exhibit, Retrospectiva Pictrica: Realismo y Subrealismo with works by Rosa Mara Ruiz Porras, beginning the 14thall at Capuchinas. Other activities include reforestation at Cerro de las Cruz on the 18th, and a favorite will be the lecture by Cronista de la Ciudad, Carlos Enrique Berdo Samayoa, titled aos de Santiago de GuatemalaCiudad Errante, on the 22nd at 10 a.m. at Capuchinas. La Antigua has recently embraced Facebook to share cultural activities so stay tuned and well see you at our esta! by Elizabeth Bell /Guatemala Insight La Antigua maintains its holiday in honor of St. James on July 25th, and the celebration begins now!

14 Candaleria Coquix grew up in the little settlement of Cantn Zapotl, part of the Municipality of San Lucas Tolimn in the Department of Solol. Just a stones throw from a little bay on the southern shore of Lake Atitln, Zapotal is home to the extended Coquix clan, founded by their patriarch Santiago Coquix during the early part of the last century. Candaleria, known to everyone by her nickname Clara, stood out from an early age as an unusually curious and precocious little girl. Dressed in the multicolored and elaborately patterned traditional traje of San Lucas, red and white striped blouse and rainbow-hued skirt, she was a beauty. Her long black hair, carefully braided by her mother, was always adorned with colorful satin ribbons, in the old style, the way she liked it. Clara proved to be an industrious child, and she was always busy helping her nana, taking care of the other children or helping with cooking chores. I have heard foreigners sometimes decry the fate of humble Maya youth because they have no childhood since they are at work from an early age. is is a misunderstanding of how things work in the Mayan world. Clara, instead of having a baby doll to play with, always had a real baby to look after, and instead of a cooking play set, she was actually helping to prepare the familys meals. In their culture participation in the community economy from an early age gives the child a sense of RABIN AJAU: e paramount indigenous cultural event of the Mayan world text/photos by Capt. or Janson / ./rRoads to Adventure Maya Princesses

17 self-worth that does not come from simple childs play. Village life begins an hour or so before dawn when the women and girls arise to grind the corn, which had been cooked and soaked in lime water from the previous afternoon. In the old days a stone metate, a kind of mortar and pestle device, was used to crush the corn into the masa (dough). Some women still prefer the traditional way of grinding, saying it makes better-tasting masa, although it is more time consuming and laborious than using the motor-driven mill called nixtamal. By ickering lamplight the little thatched-roofed, dirt-oored hut of the Coquix family is abuzz with whispering voices, and soon there is the patpat-pat sound of tortillas being carefully hand-shaped and placed upon the ceramic grill to be toasted to perfection for breakfast. As morning breaks the men and boys are getting up. Soon the entire family gathers around the re to share the humble repast of delicious hot tortillas, black bean stew and sweet coee. All but the sugar for the coee and the salt for the stew had been produced by the Coquix family, and there is a kind of pride and satisfaction that comes from growing your own food. Of course, for the Maya, corn is absolutely sacred and every aspect of its cultivation and production is done according to ancient spiritual principles. Soon the men and boys have gone o to the elds, leaving the women and girls to themselves. Clara loved learning how to weave with a backstrap loom, and by the time she was a teenager her creations were considered by all the women to be superlative. e traditional huipil (blouse) of San Lucas includes rows of small, intricately detailed gures of plants, animals and sacred geometry. Clara was an innovator and created her own design motifs, which were so popular that other girls would often copy her patterns. Clara went to the Catholic parochial school in San Lucas and even became friends with Father Greg Schaer, the priest in charge of the church. Father Greg is famous in the lake region, having arrived in the 1960sby footafter walking all the way from his home in Minnesota! Father Greg was also instrumental in developing programs that allowed local Maya to own their own land, thereby liberating many from The Rabin Ajau Pageant occurs every year on the last Saturday of July in Cobn, Alta Verapz. The pageant and its weeklong lead-up is actually the kickoff for the massive annual Cobn Fair.

PAGE 20

18 dependence from unregistered property overlords. And I suspect that it might have been Father Greg who nominated Clara as a candidate as the local Maya princess, a title conferred upon a lucky girl during the annual town festival. And sure enough, when it came to the election, Clara, dressed in the ceremonial traje that she and her mother had worked on all the previous year, won hands down. e judges also noted that she was particularly eloquent in her oratory skills. With tears of joy, accompanied by princesses from all around the lake, she was crowned the new Princess Teej Uleuf of San Lucas Tolimn. Every Mayan town in Guatemala elects its own princess, whose duty and privilege it is to preside over all the local events during her years reign. But the real highlight of the girls experience, and what all Maya princesses look forward to, is participation in the annual election of the Rabin Ajau, the Daughter of the King, which takes place the end of July in the Imperial City of Cobn, Alta Verapz. is is the paramount indigenous cultural event of the entire Mayan world. And it is amazing to me that this event as yet receives only paltry support. If I were in charge, I would elevate this event to the world-class status that it deserves. And I predict that this will eventually happen as part of the inevitable Mayan awakening, which is happening now. Finally, the last week of July arrived and Clara, along with her mother, father, sisters and brothers, boarded the bus for the eight-hour journey to Cobn. e Rabin Ajau event is a week-long aair beginning with the day of arrival when all the girls are greeted by the reigning Daughter of the King. From the time the girls arrive all their expenses are taken care of by the city of Cobn. Accompanying family members must make their own arrangements. A local photographer covering the event commented that for many of these girls it would be the rst time in their lives to sleep in a real bed. My rst reaction was to take this as a somewhat disparaging remark. But, the fact is, what he said was true. In fact, Clara had never slept in what we would call a bed. All her life she had only slept upon rough-hewn slabs of wood covered with a woven reed mat with a homespun wool blanket to keep her warm. And now Clara had her own room in a prominent hotel, complete with her own very soft though foreign bed! Ah, luxury! Would life ever be the same? e Rabin Ajau event is part of Cobns annual festival, which is really a massive party for all the residents that includes parades, musical concerts, Ferris wheels and roller coaster rides, and many other events where dignitaries preen, and overly long speeches are delivered. e 100 or so princesses take part, but all of this leads up to the last Saturday in July with the Rabin Ajau Pageant.

PAGE 21

19 e pageant used to be an all-night aair, a marathon during which each and every princess had the opportunity to take the big stage and show o her prowess in delivering a speech in her mother tongue. (ere are 21 native languages spoken in Guatemala.) e speech would convey her knowledge of traditional spirituality and etiquette and demonstrate her personal charm and grace. Organizers, taking pity on the audience, have streamlined the event by having a pre-selection a day or two before the main pageant cutting in half the duration of the show. Personally I liked the all-nighter, where all the girls had the chance to be in the spotlight. I have even suggested to the organizers that it might be especially magical to coronate the new Rabin Ajau at dawn. But I understand that for most, an all-night pageant is a bit much, and I did notice the mayor of Cobn himself was snoozing o and on during the last all-nighter. At last, Saturday night arrives and all the girls, dressed in the most gorgeous traditional hand-loomed costumes, make their way in gaily festooned buses to the enormous hall where the main stage had been transformed into Tikals Pyramid of the Inscriptions. e auditorium was packed. e bleachers were full of spectators, mainly friends and family of the princesses. Dignitaries sat in places of honor, the mayor of Cobn and family lounging on his traditional black leather couch. A few visitors had traveled from foreign lands, including a small contingent of Cherokee Indians from New Mexico, their leader decked out in full ceremonial regalia. One after the other, barefoot and without any hint of makeup, each nalist took to the stage, appealing to the Great Ajau, Lord of the Universe, to bless all those present. Each girl carried a ceramic censer from which wafted copious clouds of sacred copal-pom incense. eir performance included the recitation of ancient Mayan Scriptures and words of wisdom from the grandparent tatas and nanas. After more than four hours of kaleidoscopically mesmerizing color, sound and dance the team of judges selected 10 nalists, and among them was Clara. As each girl took to the stage to make her nal bid to win over the hearts of the judges, her family and friends shouted their enthusiastic support: We love you, Matilde! Go for it, Sara! Yeah, Clara! Everyone from Zapotal thought that Clara was going to win, and I did too, but she did not take the stage for her nal performance ...continued page 84 After more than four hours of kaleidoscopically mesmerizing color, sound and dance the team of judges selected 10 nalists, and among them was Clara.

20 When Alice Lee and her husband, Greg Schwendinger, founded CasaSito in 2004, they envisioned a small, closeknit organization...that has a deep impact on the communities in which it works. Ten years later, CasaSito remains both small and close-knit, but is helping children to stay in school and enriching their lives with education in the arts, critical thinking skills and self-awareness in communities throughout Guatemala. Everything about the organizationeven the logo showing the Chinese characters for two people under a tentreects the founders goal of making CasaSito a place where everyone feels at home, including the people we serve. Alice Lee explains, I would like to create a place where people who we serve, where people who volunteer, people who donate, and especially people who work, feel like they are at home, en la casa, and belong to a big family. Sito, a nickname taken from an Italian scooter engine company, signies something small but powerful. CasaSito is a small association but, like this small engine, supplies powerful driving force that propels people to be better. CasaSito began as a funding source for Antigua-area daycare centers in 2004, but by 2007 its work had expanded to supporting projects such as building community centers, food programs, and schools in the Departments of Quetzaltenango, Totonicapn, Alta Verapaz and Quich. CasaSito now uses two approaches to increasing access to education: scholarships and support for partner organizations. e scholarship program now helps 172 students in Sacatepquez, Alta Verapaz and Quich succeed in school at the basico (grades 7-9), diversicado (grades 10-12) and uniCOMMUNITY SERVICE by Linda Conard CasaSito engages volunteers for one month or more to work with its scholarship students or in partner projects.

21 versity levels. e rigorous, eightmonth scholarship approval process assesses grades and income, and includes an extensive application, an on-site workshop, a home visit with the students family and a personal interview with the student. Were not necessarily looking for the brightest student or the poorest student. Were looking for students who are motivated, have the potential to be leaders, are interested in helping others, and come from families who are committed to education and improving their life conditions, says CasaSito Executive Director Maritza Ortiz. Once accepted, students receive ongoing attention and guidance. Sta see every scholarship student monthly when the students submit their expenses, allowing sta to identify potential problems at the earliest stages and take immediate action. We have two psychologists on sta and theyre quite busy, says Ortiz. e monthly visits let us know when we need to do more follow-up. e scholarship program also oers workshops for both parents and students on issues like communications, relationships and time management. Students also join math, theater, reading and debate clubs or take English lessons, which build on skills rarely covered in Guatemala school curricula, such as creativity, self-expression, critical thinking and leadership. I feel very, very proud of our scholarship program and its holistic approach, says Ortiz. Its not about just giving money to students, it is about the whole support system that goes with it. CasaSito also supports several partner organizations in Antigua and other departments with volunteers, funding and administrative coaching. ese partners enhance students classroom education with programs in arts, crafts, music, dancing, theater and more. Our partner projects are all unique and reect each of their founders personalityyou really cant compare them. Los Patojos encourages children to have a voice through the arts. Semilla de Esperanza y Amor is all about giving students love. en you have programs like Brillo de Sol and LaVosi for students with special needs, and EducArte, which teaches children to express themselves and ght social injustice, says Ortiz. I ts not about just giving money to students, it is about the whole support system that goes with it....continued page 37

She credits a strict convent education, humble beginnings that bordered on poverty and a fortuitous yet dicult birth order for her escape into the world of imagination and art. Middle-child syndrome became her position, allow ing her to slip unnoticed into a dream world that provid ed her the materials with which she has built a life of her own making. After 35 years as a professional artist, Bar tula says she nally understands her artistic path. Believ ing that artists have a responsibility to the times in which Bartulas solo exhibition, Huipiles / Homenajes, comes to the Hotel Casa Santo Domingo this summer, opening on Saturday, July 5. ese works are homage appropria tions of cultural traditions and folk heroes, political and religious structures, all seen through the matrix of the feminine. One large work titled Matrix invites the view er to take time and reect on a family member, teacher or mentor, a woman in her/his life that made a dierence. ey can then write an homage to her upon one of the 104 huipil-shaped papers axed to a grid on the wall. ...continued page 80 they live, she uses her art as a voice to speak of beauty, truth, spirit, joy, pain and justiceeverything that this human life entails. And with that voice she speaks for the voiceless, the powerless and the silenced women of the world.

32 Often we hear that there are left-brain people and right-brain people. ose with dominant left brains tend to be more analytical while those who are right-brain dominant are more creative. We all have the capacity to balance our brain. We can tune into the fullness of our life experience instead of only part of it. If you are a left-brain analytical type, why not study the fascinating art and colors of Guatemala? Allow your ability to study patterns to become your creative source. Uncover the science of the composition and then simply smile at your discernment when the rules are broken by creative inspiration. For the right-brain creative, the ability to ow with the explosion of artistry that is abundant in Guatemala can be an overload experience. Step back from the chaos and channel your inspiration into a focus, such as writing or sketching. Both the left and the right brain will begin to discover that there is a harmony seeking recognition as you step fully into your experience of the colorful and chaotic now. is month seasonal rain brings with it the creation of greater canopies in the jungles and mountains and the freshness of new growth. Colors become more vivid when painted against the pastel cloudy backdrop and everything beckons your attention. Add in the myriad colorful bugs and the stunning ora that is uniquely Guatemala and the whole brain has a buet of stimulus to keep it happy and active. It is how you decide to channel this stimulus that will determine your experience. For example, two people walk into a gallery lled with Guatemalan artwork. ey explore the paintings alongside exquisite weaving work. ere is also pottery and dioramas of daily life in villages. One may appreciate the time and tenacity that was placed into the creation of the piece, while another simply marvels at what he or she feels when connecting with it. ere are levels of engagement with the creations; have you explored them? It is the ability to witness multiple perspectives that brings forth a fullness from the experience. And this applies to everything in our lives. Here is a simple experiment: Find something intriguing to focus your attention and then consciously connect with it from both of your brain experiences. e left brain will study this object and appreciate the science, colors and balance of its creation. e right brain will take in the object as a whole and marvel at the energy and feeling that it oers. It is your conscious awareness of both hemispheres of your brain being invoked that will create your full experience. Practice makes perfect.

34 Guatemala is a beautiful country. ere are many places of interest to visit along with the opportunity to treat yourself to delicious Guatemalan cuisine. If you enjoy a good wine with your meal you might be wondering how to pair it with Guatemalan food. Guatemalan cooking is not as spicy as Mexican food, but rather it is mild with spicy overtones. is month were going to select a good wine to enjoy with Subanik (Amalia Moreno-Damgaards recipe is on page 56). Subanik is prepared by using chicken and pork along with tomatoes, onion, garlic, bell pepper and chile. So it is a fairly heavy dish with lots of avors. e rst and most important rule of wine and food pairing is that neither the food not the wine can be dominant. For instance if you choose a powerful fruit-bomb Shiraz to pair with Subanik, the tannins and the black fruit aromas may overpower the dish. On the other hand, if you choose a light neutral wine like an Italian Frascati, the dish will make the wine even more neutral or abby. Acidity is important. Acidity is tasted on the sides of the tongue and give you the impression of freshness in wine. It helps clean the palate, so a wine with high acidity is ideal for spicy foods. High acid wines are the whites Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and most sparkling wines. Finally, aromatic wines pairs really well with spicy food. Its fruitiness improves the avors of the dish and creates a one of a kind combination that will blow your senses away. Aromatic grapes are the whites Riesling, Gewrztraminer, Torronts and Viogner. So when choosing a wine to pair with Guatemalan food, I will recommend that you try some demi-sec sparkling wine, a fruity Sauvignon Blanc (from New Zealand, for instance) or a fruity Riesling from Alsace or Germany (feinherb is an expression in German for demi-sec). If you love red wine and want to try it with Guatemalan cuisine, the only one I recommend is a wine made with Pinot Noir grapes. Pinot Noir is a fairly light red wine with high acidity that might go well with some spicy and sh dishes. It is a hard choice though, you must choose a Pinot from a cool region such as Oregon or Carneros in California or others from Chile or New Zealand. So pay attention on how heavy the wine and the food is, if the wine has enough acidity to balance the spices in the food and if the grape has good aromas that will compliment your dish. ere is an array of possibilities, have fun experimenting with the right combination that works for your palate. Cheers and bon appetite! text/photos by Alessandra EstevesWINES &SPIRITS www.damadovinho.com.brPairing Guatemalan Food with Wine If you enjoy a good wine with your meal you might be wondering how to pair it with Guatemalan food.

36 Socialization at an early age for puppies, the benets outweighs the risks P ET CA R E by Marjolaine PerraultMuch has been said about the benets of early socialization for puppies and countless studies have proven that it is safe even without having completed the puppys immunization protocol by vaccine administration. So when I moved to Guatemala and started training dogs again I was surprised to encounter so many clients with dogs that did not have the benet of early socialization and must deal with the consequences of a fearful, anxious and sometimes aggressive animal. I then asked myself: Should my recommendations change? Should I encourage puppy owners to get out there and expose their little fur ball to the world? Is the new environment in which I am working much dierent than the one I had back home? My further experience has led me to reconrm my belief in early socialization. First lets review the early development stages of dogs, more specically the socialization period. e socialization period for puppies starts at 21 days and ends at 14 weeks, sometimes 12. During this period puppies need to be exposed to new experiences and have positive outcomes with a maximum of people, other dogs, other species and situations. e more the puppy sees, the better he/she will be at coping with novel situations during adulthood. eres an optimum socialization period from 6-8 weeks during which it is crucial to have positive experiences with humans and a fear imprint period between 8-11 weeks that makes them more susceptible to permanent trauma if a bad, scary or painful event happens. e vaccination protocol for puppies is not complete until 16 weeks, so is it possible to ensure proper socialization without compromising the health of your puppy? Socialization goes hand in hand with immunization protocols for puppies. Many opportunities are available for owners without putting the dog at risk anywhere in the world. First avoid negative situations: Dont take you puppy into crowded street-dog areas like public markets or parks. Dont allow play time with unvaccinated dogs. Dont overdo it and/or force your puppy to engage in an activity he/she does not comfortable with. Dont let your puppy just deal with it. en nd positive situations: Do expose your puppy to friendly, well-mannered, vaccinated dogs of all sizes. Do bring your dog to pet-friendly restaurants even if it means he/she needs to stay on your lap. Do bring him/her shopping and for frequent car rides. Do invite people over to your house for puppy parties. Do respect your puppy by giving him/Puppy Training Puppy Training

Ortiz hopes that one day CasaSito can expand the annual festival into a year-round arts program. In the short term, the sta of CasaSito are evaluating their programs to make their work even more eective. Recently this resulted in expanding the Cobn scholarship program from a few annual sta visits and 19 scholarship students in 2011, to a new on-site Cobn oce and 53 scholarship students in 2014. at kind of improvement is another illustration of the sito part of CasaSito: its small-but-powerful sta. Ortiz explains, What makes CasaSito special is how passionate and committed they truly are toward the vision of CasaSito. ey work so hardnot because anyone tells them they have to do it, but from the heart. After 10 years, that passion and commitment still extends to the beneciaries. Ortiz adds, Just as you see in our logo, internally and among the people we work withwe truly treat everyone like part of the family. CasaSito turns 10 cont. from page 21her the time needed to assess an unfamiliar situation. Do set him/her up for success and make every new situation a pleasant one. Do seek positive professional training as early as 8 weeks of age. Socialization is crucial to the development of dogs and if we fail to provide it, serious behavioral problems will arise as the puppy grows into adulthood and starts showing signs of fear and defensive behavior, compromising the human-animal bond. You have a puppy? Grab a toy, some treats, smile and get out there! Marjolaine Perrault is a professional dog trainer; for more info., visit www.elchuchofeliz.com

38 One of our greatest joys while traveling is eating local street food. We cant imagine going to faraway locations where everything is pulsating with life and exotic new avors and only eating at name-brand hotels or popular tourist restaurants. Why limit ourselves and our experiences out of an exaggerated sense of caution? We arent being careless about food and water choices; rather, we have two decades of world travel experience and want to share our perspective. No matter where you travel, even from New York City to Los Angeles, there may be dierent bacteria in the water, air and food than what we encounter at home. Our bodies react to these as if they are invaders and we could develop headaches, nausea, and a lack of energy or extra activity in our intestines. It doesnt always mean that the food, ice or water isnt clean. It might have more to do with an individuals immune system and the response to the introduction to dierent bacteria. If you are traveling in windy weather, you can develop stuy sinuses, a headache or an upset stomach. Again, this may have nothing to do with the food, but rather with what is being blown around in the air. So to be clear, windy weather is a contributing factor to intestinal distress. If you do choose to eat at a street stall or sidewalk caf, its important to nd a busy one that cooks what you want right on the spot. is will assure you that the food is being turned over regularly and not sitting around becoming cold or contaminated. In normal circumstances if there is going to be an uncomfortable digestive reaction, it happens within the rst 10 days to three weeks of being in that new location. For lower intestinal activity, taking a few Imodium should solve the problem. If not, then antibiotics generally Is Eating Street Food Safe?

40 do the trick. Were not doctors and are not prescribing anything, but we have found pharmacists recommend Noroxacin or Nifuroxazida (400 mg.) and that normally will take care of stomach pain or diarrhea in a matter of hours or a day or so, tops. We learned years ago that a course of over-the-counter Albendazole or other amoeba and worm pills every six months will eradicate parasites trying to nd a home in our bodies. Most eating establishments serve salad or fresh vegetables rinsed in water and if you are concerned that you might pick up a bug, these pills can allay that fear. We also recommend washing your hands as often as possible or using a moist towelettes or baby wipes. If you are taking public transportation, going on tours or even visiting museums, this will put you in contact with the general public. Keeping your hands clean will add to your overall protection from getting something that will upset your stomach. Staying hydrated is important and if you bring your own water bottle, it is wise to check the freshness of the water in your bottle. is is especially true if you are traveling in the tropics. Mold can grow in a few days; lling your bottle with puried water will not protect you fully. Be sure to wipe o the mouth of your bottle often with something sterile and bleach the bottle out regularly. Some people like the idea of using SteriPENs when they travel so they can purify their own water while passing through bus stations or venturing out in the boonies. You can also use this pen in hotels and this will allow you to drink from the tap after you have used this pen to sterilize your water. is might be a little more adventurous than you had in mind but at least you know its an option. We would rather take precautions than miss the exciting opportunities to experience the street food and avors when traveling. It is just too large a part of our journeying pleasure for us to give up due to fear. As a matter of course we always drink bottled water, but in general, if you are in a civilized city or town, the ice and water served in restaurants are ne. ey are not going to serve something unclean to their clientele and expect to stay in business. ere could be the odd time that food poisoning happens, but this occurs anywhere and everywhere in the world, including the United States. So is eating street food safe? We think it is, if you follow our suggestions. We hope you nd this information useful, insightful and helpful and hopefully it will reduce the fear factor you may have over eating exotic food in foreign countries. http://globetrottergirls.com/ If you do choose to eat at a street stall or sidewalk caf, its important busy one that cooks what you want right on the spot.Street Food from previous page

Spitters, Scratchers, & Snappers Our veterinarian cringed when I told her that I gave a few drops of pediatric acetaminophen to our cat Mikey because he didnt seem to be feeling very well. Should I not have done that?PET Qs & As by Cynthia Burski, DVM Question:Cats have a unique biology. You cant assume that medications that are eective for humans will also work the same for your cat. Tylenol and other acetaminophen-based drugs cannot be metabolized by cats and can cause a serious breakdown in its system, meaning that the blood cannot produce enough oxygen to supply its body. Within three to four hours dramatic signs start to appear such as deep and rapid breathing, depression and weakness. At this stage even emergency veterinarian treatment may not reverse the profound stupor, and the cat may die. Other common human medications that should never be given to cats are Pepto-Bismol and aspirin. If you cat appears sick pleases take him to your veterinarian for a diagnosis and treatment.

50 In evolutionary theory they say mammals descended from reptiles over many millions of years. In La Antigua Guatemala it happened overnight, 15 years ago, when the Gator Grill morphed into our favorite primate, Monoloco. I drove down in my 1987 Honda Accord through Mexico with the trunk full of stereo equipment and my CD collection to get things started, recalls Billy Burns, who like many Antigua visitors got here with my backpack and felt like sticking around. In June 1999 Burns bought out Hctor Castro to become co-owner with Jean-Louis Trombetta of the Gator Grill on 2a avenida sur. From there Burns and Trombetta launched what would become the popular restaurant and sports bar featuring the zany monkey mascot. Burns, a recent graduate of the University of Virginia at the time, wanted to make a fresh start with a new name for the bar but was still stumped the night before the paperwork was due. With help from visiting college friends, he chose the name of a favorite saloon back home in Virginia. Monoloco seemed perfect because it is easy to say even if you dont speak Spanish, and with all of the Os, it makes a great logo, Burns says. Amazingly, the original Monoloco in Charlottesville is still kicking butt as well.Antiguas Favorite Primate Turns 15Monoloco celebrates its anniversary PROFILE by Matt BokorMammals descended from reptiles over many millions of years.

54 It is common knowledge that rubber trees produce latex. And most people are aware that Charles Goodyear discovered vulcanization, a chemical process for converting natural rubber into a more durable material that turned into a billiondollar tire industry. Not many people, however, are aware that the Maya and Aztec learned how to make rubber bounce thousands of years ago by enhancing latex with plant properties rather than isolated chemicals. e Olmec were most likely the rst to discover this method about 3,000 years ago. e Spaniards made notes about it, then three centuries later scholars at MIT documented this ancient method by studying how descendants in Chiapas, Mexico continue to treat latex so that it bounces. At FLAAR we believe there was more than just one single plant that has the necessary chemical make up to covert latex into a bouncy ball, and of even more interest, we are studying other trees that also produce a latexlike liquid. e two latex-producing trees best known in Mesoamerica are the Plumeria rubra or Plumeria alba, often referred to as frangipani, Flor de Mayo, or other local names from the botanical family Apocynaceae, and the Stemmadenia donnell-smithii, huevos de caballo or huevos del toro, also from the same botanical family. It is interesting to note that a dandelion that grows in Russia can also produce rubber. Indeed German scientists have opened a facility to actually test this for producing car tires. But whether the dandelion was native to Guatemala before the Spaniards, and whether this species produced latex can only be answered with further research. We continue studying plants in Guatemala that can produce latex and resin. Ink for advanced wide-format inkjet industrial printers for signage and for printing wallpaper use either latex ink or resin ink. Although these inks are made with chemicals, trees and plant chemical bases share several similarities.

56 Sazn (the right seasoning) is crucial in any cuisine, and it depends on the skill and taste of the cook. Many of us learned the ropes in the kitchen at home with our grandmothers and mothers, and this inuences our cooking style and taste preferences. e soul of the kitchen is indeed sazn and it depends on the proper orchestration of spices and other seasonings. To acquire authentic Guatemalantasting dishes, it is best to choose the proper ingredients and seasonings or nding suitable substitutes if you dont live in Guatemala. e spices and seasonings used in Guatemalan cooking correspond to the style of the cuisine, traditional (MayanSpanish), home cooking (SpanishMayan) or Garifuna (Afro-Caribbean). Taste testing can be a good way to identify substitutes for harder-tond ingredients or nding cuisines with ingredients with close proximity to Guatemalas, such as Mexican or Salvadoran. Basic ingredients in Guatemalan cooking are onions, garlic, tomatoes and tomatillos, as well as varieties of squash, corn, beans and rice. Garifuna fare includes coconut, yucca and plantains to avor stews and other dishes. Typical spices, herbs and seasonings in traditional cuisine are dried and fresh chilis, various dried and fresh herbs and dried and fresh seeds, in addition to dried and fresh owers. Large Guatemalan mercados (markets) are a feast for the eyes with their wide variety of fruits, vegetables and spices. Outside Guatemala, it can be challenging (but not impossible) to nd the right ingredients. Fortunately, many foods are now available online or at local specialty stores. With the continuing growth of the Latino population in the U.S., it is easier to spot the right ingredients or close substitutes by shopping at Latin markets. e most common seasonings in Mayan stews are dried chilis, such as guaque, pasa, ulute (or cobanero), and zambo to a lesser extent; and fresh chilis, such as chiltepe (used for spicy sauces), guaque (for chiles rellenos), bell peppers (for salads, sauces, soups and stews), and habaneros in Garifuna food. Fresh herbs like culantro (cilantro), zamat (wild cilantro), mint, parsley and epazote (a wild, earthy and pungent herb), used alone or combined, give stews a distinctive touch, but aromatic spices, such as cumin, allspice, cloves, anise, canela (cinnamon) and black pepper, give each cuisine its denite character. e duo thyme and bay leaves, or the trio thyme, oregano and bay leaves, are common in homestyle cooking with a heavier Spanish inuence. yme, ginger and curry avor some Garifuna cooking. Despite the wide use of dried and fresh chilis, Guatemalan cuisine is not spicy, but rather tasty, fresh, colorful and for the most part mild because spicy sauces and salsas are often served on the side.

58 and provide balance, soften spiciness and help absorb delicious recados (sauces). Flor de ayote (squash blossoms) along with pito (added to black beans), izote (yuca ower) and loroco buds (for empanadas and chicken) are fresh owers used in cooking, while manzanilla (chamomile) and rosa de Jamaica (hibiscus sabdaria) are dried owers that traditionally make delicious hot or refreshing frescos (drinks) with taste similar to cranberry. Dried seeds like pepita de ayote (pumpkin seeds)as well as dried peppersare rst roasted (and sometimes smoked as done with chile cobanero) on a dry comal (clay griddle) to heighten the avor and then ground to use on cut-up fresh fruit along with lime and salt. In Guatemala you often see this sold on street carts. Both roasted pumpkin and sesame seeds go alone or together in recados (salsas) for tamales and Mayan stews such as pepin, mole and others. Achiote gives color and not avor or aroma to dishes. A little goes a long way, and the pasty seeds from the achiote pod produce a light or deep orange tinge, depending on the amount used. Dried or fresh achiote seeds are sold at mercados and supermarkets in Guatemala, and the paste keeps in the freezer for several months after the package is opened. Use fresh achiote paste as is, or steep the seeds in medium-hot oil rst. is Mayan stew (see recipe) is not only delicious, nutritious and easy to make, but it also incorporates many of the ingredients and seasonings highlighted above. Like American chili, Guatemalan stews taste fantastic the rst day, but even more scrumptious the next day. Pork and Chicken Stew By Amalia Moreno-Damgaard (AmaliaLLC.com) Subanik is a traditional hearty stew from Chimaltenango, located about 35 miles west of Guatemala City. It is scrumptious and easy to make. It is a perfect one-dish meal for a gathering. is delicious, velvety red stew goes well with arroz Guatemalteco (Guatemalan vegetable rice) and tamalitos de queso (fresh cheese mini-tamales in banana leaves), which provide a break between spicy bites. Serves 4 people 3 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 2-inch pieces 1/2 pound pork butt or shoulder cut into 2-inch pieces Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon canola oil 2 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken stock 1 cup quartered Roma tomatoes (about 2 large tomatoes) 1/2 cup husked, quartered tomatillos (3 to 4 large tomatillos) is Mayan stew is not only delicious, nutritious and easy to make, but it also incorporates many of the ingredients and seasonings highlighted here.

64 Ceviche. Its pronounced SAY-vi-chay, and it is one of my favorite culinary treats on the planet. e key ingredient in all of the varieties of ceviche is lime. e acidic lime juice is added in large amounts to cook the seafood. e dish is typically served with saltine crackers or fresh tortilla chips. Some people proclaim that it is the best hangover cure in the world. ere are many ways to prepare ceviche; each country or region has its own particular method. Some people swear that the ceviche in Peru is the most delicious, while others will only eat authentic Mexican-style ceviche, and happily others have found their favorite right here in Guatemala. Ceviche is a cold seafood dish that must be prepared with freshcaught sh. Most desirable are the dense varieties of sh such as mahi-mahi or shark. Ceviche mixto includes shrimp, squid, conch, octopus or any combination. In Guatemala tomato, onion and a variety of spices, such as garlic, chili, Worcester sauce and salt, are added. You can take precautions to help avoid a gastrointestinal nightmare. First, make sure you buy your ceviche at a reputable location, preferably in the morning when the sh are fresh from the ocean. Also, if you want to be extra careful with shrimp or conch, you can ask for it precocido (precooked). I typically only order ceviche from a restaurant or stand where I can see the ocean directly in front of me. e freshest ceviche Ive ever tasted was prepared for me on a boat, just minutes after the sh had been caught. I am breaking my rule though when it comes to eating ceviche in La Antigua Guatemala. Fish vendors arrive in Antigua early in the morning with fresh sh, caught only hours before and packed through and through under ice. One of my favorite places to order ceviche is the Mexican ceviche cart that sets up on the weekends near the IGSS Hospital. Its a little sweeter and the seafood is always spot on fresh.

66 Whitey Bulger sitting at the bar. Trombetta armed himself with a frying pan but thought better of it. We should have clocked himIm convinced it was him, Trombetta says. (After 16 years in hiding Bulger was arrested in 2011 and convicted in 2013 of murder and other charges.) For a while, the Antigua police station was across the street, which led to some breathless moments: ey used to test tear gas canisters at night. Our kitchen extractor fan would suck the tear gas down the hallway, and everyone would have to ee into the street with tears running town their faces and wait for the gas to clear, Burns explains. From its modest start with 30 seats and one nicky TV, Monoloco has expanded to over 400 seats and 15 high-denition TVs. Victor Tejeda joined the partnership with Burns and Trombetta in 2002. In October 2012, they opened a 250-seat Monoloco in Guatemala City (Plaza Obelisco, Zone 10), which is also going strong. Over the years thousands of Peace Corps volunteers have rolled through, as have adoptive parents waiting to take their new Guatemalan kids to the States. An ambassador visits now and then, among scores of tourists, ex-pats and Guatemalans. El Pescado Ruiz, Guatemalas soccer legend, stops in occasionally for vodka, Burns adds. And at least 15 couples who met at Monoloco eventually got married, among them Burns and his wife, Kate Flatley. e Monoloco following converged at the restaurant June 13 to celebrate the 15-year milestone, enjoying gallons of beer, mixed drinks, mounds of food and live music provided by Matt Humke, Eric Fry, Willie Gomez, Tom Graham and Mercedes Escobar, with Los Cachorros Del Occidente playing mariachi classics. e key to Monolocos success has been its across-the-board appeal, Burns says: We have carefully protected our image as an ex-pat destination, but the reality is that 90 percent of our business is Guatemalan. With 3 million Guatemalans in the city 45 minutes away, that makes for much more consistent business than relying on tourism, which ebbs and ows with the economy.

It was a me and you adventure with my friend Terry and myself when we stopped in for lunch to sample a few Ca Opera dishes that we had heard people raving about. Every country and seemingly every person have their own idea of what traditional Italian food should taste like. Ca Operas Italian cuisine is denitely the real deal; the menu is extensive with selections that would please anyone hungering for a true taste of Italy. Along with our shared chicken salad, we also indulged in spaghetti with pesto and ricotta and spinach ravioli. It was a delightfully scrumptious lunch.Ensalada Ca Opera con polloMe-n-u sampling Ca Opera Bistrot by Shannon McCullough Food for Thought Lunch companions enjoying a scrumptious meal.

For this reason, it is imperative that only high-quality, clean, disease-free seafood be used to make ceviche. http://foodreference.about.com/od/ traditional_foods/a/What-Is-Ceviche.htmHugos with a very tasty version, adding more lime juice to the mix. Youll especially love it if you prefer a more acidic bite. La Pergolita, on the Alameda Santa Luca (aka the calzada), prepares ceviche in the traditional Guatemalan style, blending lime and other ingredients into subtle and tangy avors. For Livingston-style ceviche try Pelicano Dorado in Panorama. Once you try ceviche, if youre like me, I guarantee that anytime you are near a coastline youll be searching out the best place for the local version. If you are traveling in CenCeviche cont. from page 64tral and South America right now, have fun sampling each region or countrys oerings of this culinary treat.

She believes this is something all women have done at least once in their lives, especially those be fore and of the baby-boomer generation. inking back on how many times in her life she remained quiet rather than speaking up, Bartula created Unzipped. After be ing given a bag lled with zippers of all colors and sizes, she posted an invitation on Facebook for friends to send her a word or a phrase they had at one time kept inside. With colored markers, these phrases were written inside the openings of the zippers. us, this huipil pays hom age to all women who are learning, and teaching others, to speak our truths when we can. A rm believer that art has the power to transform and to heal, Bartula uses her contemporary huipils as a meta phor to speak about the cover-up and the uncovering of womens stories. She recently uncovered a story of the ulti mate self-silencing, the life and death of popular Chilean singer/songwriter Violeta Parra. Her most beloved tune, Gracias a la Vida, is thought by many to be her suicide note, because just after its release, she ended her life with a single bullet. Her tune is a hauntingly beautiful tribute to the life she chose not to continue. e huipil in her hon or includes compact discs, a photo of the singer and her guitar and the words of her song stitched in silver thread. Along the bottom milagros are in the shapes of heads and hearts, visible prayers for those who are seeking hope in what sometimes feels like hopeless times. Lena Bartula cont. from page 26 A good traveler has no xed plans, and is not intent on arriving. Lao Tzu Most travel is best of all in the anticipation or the remembering; the reality has more to do with losing your luggage. Regina Nadelson We are never prepared for what we expect. James A.

Real teal y down to winter here and some stick around, but the color teal is always found in Guatemala if you look for the bluish-green shade among all the more intense blues and greens and browns around this sensuous country. e greenwinged teal, a gregarious little duck, comes from the north when it gets cold up there, and is supposed to have gone home by now. Like other North American and European visitors, some decide to nest down and stick around. So the color teal, very popular among interior decorators back in the 1950s and 1960s, is in Guatemala (both indoors and outdoors) all the time if you know where to look for it. Common teals eyes are surrounded by the color. e little guys gave their name to the shade about a century ago. You had a teal Crayola in your elementary-school box of crayons, and the sidewalk artists under the arch in Antigua mix it up on their palettes by adding some white to their blue oils with touches of black and gray. e guardians of Antiguas colonial architecture dont include teal on their list of 12 approved colors for the towns walls, but youll nd teal houses anyway where the bright sunshine has faded the original blue paint. Sometimes the sun softens the blue of the republics ag into teal, too. e teal bird loves our littoral wetlands, especially in the mangrove forests of Manchon-Guamuchal along the Pacic Coast and at Amatique resorts in the Caribbean. e ducks sometimes nest up Lake Izabal and the Rio Dulce, where the gently owing water in shaded areas is itself a beautiful teal in the ltered soft sunshine. Swim there and youll spot lots of teal markings on tropical sh, or go deep-sea shing and nd teal colorings on some big trophies. Teal blue attracted Maya weavers too, sewing teal thread into some Totonicapn designs, into Highland huipel blouses of San Marcos and Quetzaltenango and painting plastered homes a teal complemented by the red tile roofs. Stroll the tropical gardens of Monterrico beach resorts, or go deep in the jungles of the national parks in the Petn, or explore the forests of Alta Verapaz, and youll nd teal, both the shade in pools and backwaters and the sometimes noisy quacking guys whove never returned north but make Guatemala their year-round home. anks to these birds for their name and the sensuous shade. SENSUOUS GUATEMALA by Ken Veronda Teal is always found in Guatemala, look for the bluish-green shade around this sensuous country.
