We salute Guatemala's olympic

athletes on our cover this month,
designed by Rudy Gir6n. These
12 talented and committed men and women
will be competing at the Beijing2008 Olym-
pics; stay tuned to local media for more about
their achievements.
August is traditionally dedicated to
Guatemala City's downtown Historical
Center. Starting with Sensuous Guatemala,
a feast for the senses in the great square
that is flanked by the National Palace and
the Metropolitan Cathedral. Next up, The
Time Tunnels of Zone One, a trip through
four fascinating 'pasajes', along with a sen-
timental journey to those golden bygone
days. The final homage to zone 1 is Portal
to the Past, featuring El Portal, Guatemala
City's oldest and continuously-operating
restaurant. If those walls could talk.
Within the 'Ruins of La Antigua' series
is the not to be missed Mysterious Monu-
ment, the story of the Nuestra Sefiora del
Pilar de Zaragoza de Religiosa Capuchinas.
Flashback: 1937 offers you a chance to guess
which town the author is writing about ...
"real estate sells from $2.50 an acre to $8.50
an acre.
The Zen ofFin and Fondo is aptly named
for we have come to the end of this popular
column-at least for now. Our thanks and
appreciation to writer Dwight Wayne Coop
who, after some 55 The Zen of... articles,
would like to shift gears and introduce a
new subject, beginning next month.
The August DateBook is jam-packed
with events all month long; in El Salvador
the Festival de Maiz (Celebrating Corn in
Suchitoto) will be held on August 17.

Guatemala is always a feast for all
the senses, but sensatory overload
comes each Sunday right in the
center of everything as hundreds stroll that
great square in downtown Guatemala City.
Zone One, the zero milepost, the historic
center, is alive with family groups wearing
their Sunday best, hearing the happy mu-
sic groups, eating the colorful fruits, shucos,
sausages and candies on sale. Flanked by
the former National Palace, now a muse-
um, the Metropolitan Cathedral, and office
buildings, the square is always lively, but
never more than on any given Sunday.
One fresh rose, placed each morning be-
tween two stylized hands in the center of
the plaza, is an especially symbolic touch of
color, commemorating the end of years of
civil war. Standing there, you can hear the
music in several directions around you, in-
dividual performers and groups playing for
a few coins and then there are the steaming
carts of hot sandwiches for sale with rich
colors of cut fruits and jewel-like blended
drinks; foods to please eyes and stomachs.
The bright colors of the country's ter-
rain are proudly on display in the huipiles,
beautiful blouses worn by many of the la-
dies strolling downtown. The facades of
the buildings around the great square are
muted tones, the tans of the Metropolitan
Cathedral, the grays of the former National

Palace, now a museum with tours of the
elegant ceremonial rooms opened by dicta-
tor-president Ubico in 1944.
Follow that older man from the High-
lands as he climbs slowly into the place
where he did his military service back when
General Ubico ran Guatemala with a firm
hand. The farmer hasn't returned to the
Big City since he completed his military
duties 60 years ago, but watch where he
touches: He remembers exactly where to
touch panels to open secret doors, openings
for quick escapes should the general need
them. Watch the pride in the old fellow's
eyes in admiring the gilt and marble and
crystal symbols of power he once guarded,
now just a museum of memories.
Back outside, the numbers grow as the
shadows begin to lengthen, worshippers
and shoppers and visitors from the coun-
tryside blending together, always strolling
on Sunday, never rushing, never hustling.
This is not a business day, though the
stalls of fabrics and foods in the central
market are full of colors and tastes their
proprietors hope to exchange for quetzals.
It's a day for all senses, every Sunday, for
all the Guatemalan shades and smells and
sounds and tactile sensations that make a
sensuous treat for all to enjoy. Come for a
Sunday stroll in the center of it all! 4

The newly restored Pasaje Aycinena

The Time Tunnels of Zone One

Read-or walk -your way through 22 minutes

of time travel in Guatemala's historic center
by Dwight Wayne Coop photos courtesy: Sergio Cruz Arteaga

T e yen to envision a familiar place in
an earlier era is universal. In the six-
ties, it found expression in the campy
sci-fi serial The Time Tunnel, in which two
scientists are sparked through historical
crossings in which the supporting roles-
from Alexander the Great onward-conve-
niently speak English.
A more credible time trek can be taken
in downtown Guatemala in only 22 min-
utes. Long before climate-controlled malls
in Minneapolis, there were, and still are,
Zone One's pasajes. Exploring them affords
a cobwebby peek at el Centro as it was
when the pasajes were echo-chambers for
dawn reveilles of machine-gun rat-tatting,
martial doggerel and coups d'etat.
Four fascinating pasajes abut the Plaza
de Armas, that square enclosed by the Na-
tional Palace, National Library and Na-
tional Cathedral. The fourth edge is home
to banks, a vegetarian diner, camera and
shoe shops, an arched colonnade, and two
of these time tunnels.
Begin on 7thAvenida, a half block south
of the plaza. Facing the entrance to Edificio
16 ,revuemag.com

del Centro (downtown's tallest building) is
the aperture of Tunnel 1, the rust-red Real
del Parque. Go in.
This least historical tunnel is included as
a foil to the others and as a glimpse, not
of what downtown was, but what it aspires
to. Elsewhere in the city are new, sprawling
counterpoints to this mall, though none
has its garish, high-density charm.
Real del Parque dates from the still-
cooling surface of the past century. When
the 1996 Peace Accords were signed, it was
just another drab commercial box. But to-
day you can take in three floors of artsy-
tartsy commercialism. Scarf some caramel
corn, window shop, buy a knick-knack. Go
up to the third floor to look down on the
traffic. Time becomes a dimension that will
stretch as you tour the other tunnels.
This tunnel leads outside, to bustling
8th Calle. Turn right, go two-and-a-half
blocks. When you reach Telas Lider, a cav-
ernous old yardage mart, cross the street.
With all the clutter, you could almost
miss Pasaje Savoy-Tunnel 2. But once
in, you are standing before a big-screen

Pasaje Aycinena circa 1924

Real del Parque newly restored

clunker Motorola broadcasting The Time
Tunnel. Its regression of fluorescent lights
recalls the shiny ribs of the old TV prop.
All that is missing is for the two time travel-
ers to corporealize.
Actually, much more is amiss. This ad-
dress, once prestigious, has fallen on digital
times. The fine wooden wainscots remain,
but only as unpolished veneers of the past. On
the second floor you find more faded elegance
and empty locales (storefronts) and, surpris-
ingly, window seats. These merely overlook
the building's cruddy hollow airshafts, but
they are refugios for lunching clerks and
lovestruck novios. The third floor is filled by
Savoy's current landlord, a clothing manufac-
turer. Even he may soon jump ship, competi-
tion from China is killing him.
Return to the present by exiting Savoy on
7th Calle. Go left for half a block, then right
for 10 meters, then left again at the La Tira-
da building. To your left, as you walk, is the
Mercado Central, an underground comb of
tunnels on five split levels-all "dug" after
the 1976 earthquake. On its above-ground
parking lot, there once stood the spectacular
neo-classic pre-quake mercado.
Walk another block toward the loom-
ing National Palace. Cut across the Plaza
de Armas, just to the left of the huge foun-
tain, toward the colonnade opposite the
Palace. Cross the street and seek out the
jail-cell door that looks locked. It is not
-push through it. You have just sneaked
in through the back of Tunnel 3, Pasaje

Aycinena, which was once, incredibly, a
mansion belonging to one of the repub-
lic's founding families. By the 1930s it was
what some historians call Guatemala's first
centro commercial-an honor claimed by
another Time Tunnel that is a literal stone's
throw away.
When you re-emerge into the light-
this tunnel has no roof-look back. You see
the door you came through and the outline
of two others, one arched and wide enough
for a carriage. The space between them is
now filled by a cubby-hole enterprise.
Before you exit Pasaje Aycinena through
the arch on 9th calle, look up and marvel
at the contrast of the Pasaje's ornamented
vaults with Edificio del Centro's utilitarian
angles. Back on the sidewalk outside, you
are again in the 21st century. But turn right
and walk 25 meters to Tunnel 4, to sample
yet another slice of the past.
The aperture to Pasaje Rubio is a worm-
hole flagged by glass-walled galaxies of
jewelry. Now enter what other historians
call Guatemala's first centro commercial. Its
founder, Sefior Rubio-no one recalls his
first name-built it as a place for the elite to
shop and dine. Until 2008, its liver-spotted
complexion and patchy floor made it seem
old for its 80 years; today, the well-to-do (ex-
cepting coin hounds) rarely shop here. But
despite the wrinkles in its original ambience,
it remains a time-strolling venue. Except for
an appliance dealer, every store retains some
of its original character ...contnued n page 76

Real del Parque circa 1928


Master architect Diego de Porres builds his finest convent:
Nuestra Seiora del Pilar de Zaragoza de Religiosas Capuchinas
by Joy Houston photos by Jack Houston
S even monasteries, four convents, sixteen orders and three dozen churches to support.
Earthquake destruction of private, public and church buildings in 1717. Cloistered
Clarisian and Barefoot Carmelite nuns scared out of their convents. On top of that,
worldwide economic troubles. Civil authorities of Santiago de Caballeros, now La Antigua
Guatemala, had their hands full and put a freeze on establishment of religious orders.
Still, with faith flourishing in Spain, the Mother Superior in Madrid approached King
Philip V to request founding of the Capuchin order in Santiago, and he ordered a feasibil-
ity study in November 1720. Upon taking up the matter in August 1721 (no cell phones
or e-mail in the 18th century), the town council was dumbfounded. The request read that
the people of Guatemala had asked for the Capuchin nuns. The council responded, "No
way!" and tabled the matter.
According to J. Joaquin Pardo, Pedro Zamora Castellanos and Luis Lujan Muioz in the
Gula de Antigua Guatemala, "The truth was that the request for the Capuchin nuns was
made by the bishop of Guatemala, Alvarez de Toledo." Maybe he went ahead on his own,
knowing a request through usual channels wouldn't stand a chance. Some justification
may have been found in the fact that the Capuchinas did not require a dowry for entrance,
as did other convents, offering opportunity for the religious life for the less-than-rich.
Although royal permission was not granted until May 1725 to found the convent of

Nuestra Sefiora del Pilar de Zaragoza de Religiosas Capuchinas, whose title comes from
the style of their head cover, it seems that arrangements had already been made in April for
the Madrid nuns' travel to Guatemala. The bishop died in July of that year and perhaps
had felt some urgency to accomplish what he wanted to do, so he did it his own way.
Travel was tough in those days, and the nuns didn't arrive until January 1726. "For-
tunately there were only five," according to the Gula. One had died en route. Per the
royal edict, the convent would be established in the Church of El Carmen, on 3a avenida
between 3a and 2a calls, and its conventual facilities. That church had been almost en-
tirely destroyed by the earthquake, and repairs were not complete until 1728. Originally a
simple hermitage to shelter an image of the Virgin Mary, the eventual church was consid-
erably more elaborate, among the finest in town, and "...was very special in its epoch for
the sacred music played in it," wrote Rafael Alvarez Polanco in Antigua. Today its skillfully
sculpted facade is among the most photographed sites of La Antigua Guatemala.
But when the Capuchinas arrived in 1726, that facility was deemed unsuitable; and a
new site was purchased by the new bishop, Cervantes. The five nuns stayed with the Bare-
foot Carmelites of the Santa Teresa convent, maybe out in their orchard huts (talk about
unsuitable), where they awaited post-earthquake reconstruction of their own convent. In
March the Capuchinas were ushered in grand protocol to their new home, even though
royal approval for the switch from El Carmen didn't come until July 1727. Records are not
clear about the location of that new home.
In 1728 the order requested permission to expand from the limit of 25 to 33 nuns; that

BELOW: Two sunken bath tubs with hot water supply

was never granted. Nonetheless, in 1730
yet another bishop was in place, who pur-
chased yet another site, which he believed
better for the Capuchinas and on which he
would build a church and spacious convent
with his own funds. He chose the Niiado,
on 2a avenida at 2a calle, literally around
the corner from El Carmen and a couple of
blocks from Santa Teresa.
The Niiado, or the school of the Ni-
ias Doncellas, a fine school for girls, had
a prestigious history dating back to 1553.
But its purpose had deteriorated along the
way, and it became a detention center until
1643, when the king ordered its return to
the original purpose. The property includ-
ed a formal church and buildings in good
condition, and architect Diego de Porres
was commissioned to adapt and expand the
facility for the Capuchinas.
The Capuchin Convent, with thick
walls, squat columns and unique iron re-
inforcement, is perhaps the best conserved
colonial construction, being among the lat-
est and most earthquake resistant. Archi-
tecture in Santiago flourished in the period
from 1717 to 1773, and Diego de Porres
was on the cutting edge. He had learned
from his father, working together with him
from the age of six on projects such as the
churches of Santa Teresa, Compafia de
Jesis, Santa Clara, Escuela de Cristo and
Recolecci6n, which Diego finished after his
father, Jose, died. He was a busy man when
he took up the job for the Capuchinas, hav-
ing just finished reconstruction for the Ca-
thedral and the convent and Church of La
Concepci6n, incorporating new decorative
elements in the domes, vaults and arches
and decorated pilasters, which became one
of his distinctive styles.
Luis Lujin Muioz said, "Porres marks
the link between the Baroque and the be-
ginning of Classicism." In contrast to the

18 revuemag.com

abundant adornment of Santa
Clara, the Capuchin Church is
simple and sober. Diego had his
own ideas, but all religious or-
ders had rules for their monas-
tery and convent designs as well.
For nuns, these included absence
of columns, which could ob-
struct visual connection with the
clergy, and private worship space
in the nave, usually opposite the
altar. The facades of convent
churches are typically inside the
convent wall, with side doors for
public entrance. But there are al-
ways exceptions.
While the door mistakenly
built in the facade of the Church
of Santa Clara caused such a fuss
and had to be blocked up to pro-
tect the cloistered nuns' space at
that end of the nave, the churches
of Santa Teresa and Capuchinas
do have doors in their fagades-
their orders being exceptions to
the rule. The Capuchin nuns'
choirs were above the front door
and at the front, next to the al-
tar, off the side of the nave, be-
hind an iron grill.
Sadly, the impressive facility
seen today, completed in 1736,
was to have a short life. The
earthquake of 1751 battered the
upper story, and that of 1773 sig-
naled the end, as it did that of
the entire town as the colonial
capital. But the curious history
and mystery of the Capuchin
Convent doesn't stop there.
The three-story, round tower
at the north of the convent has
been discussed and debated.

by Dr. Karmen Guevara
Balance and harmony are the founda-
tions of wisdom, yet they are sorely
neglected in our lives-it wasn't
part of our everyday life curriculum. Con-
sequently, we often live in a state of "too
much" or "too little." In today's world,
these gross imbalances are reflected in the
financial, socio-economic and environmen-
tal arenas. Although we cannot take on
the planet, we are the stones that cause the
ripples in a pond. Mahatma Gandhi was
quoted as saying, "You must be the change
you wish to see in the world."
We are three-dimensional creatures with
a mind, body and a spirit. The biggest im-
balance lies with the mind because it's ruled
by the ego, which makes it top heavy. Our
thinking, feelings and behaviors all happen
from the neck up. How can you tell if your
mind is imbalanced? Simply observe how
often you can be without thoughts.
When our spirit isn't connected with
our outer lives, we experience an increasing
sense of loss of balance and harmony. How
can we tell if the spirit is not balanced?
When we forget: to feel, to express grati-
tude, to love without expectations, to listen
to the inner voice and to be fully present.
Our bodies hold everything. Like a giant
garbage pail, it is forced to deal with junk
food and other excesses plus all the negative
memories and emotions that we mentally
shove aside. Eventually the body becomes
imbalanced and falls into "dis-ease."
Moderation in everything is the key to
achieving balance and harmony with our

spirit and the inner peace that lies within.
When we are in this natural state, we are in
tune with the universal principle of balance
and adjustment.
Remember, it is not about never doing
this or that. Sometimes you do and some-
times you don't-but you always come back
to the middle ground. As Albert Einstein
said, "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep
your balance you must keep moving." I)

Spitters, Scratchers
and Snappers
Pet Q's & A's by Cynthia Burski, DVM

CHALLENGE: Introducing a new kitten to an older cat

Question: We recently adopted a 3-month-
old cat that we are trying to introduce to
our older cat Tommy, who is neutered and
declawed. When Tommy sees the new cat
he becomes quite upset and snarly. What
are we to do?

Answer: Whether or not these two cats
get along in the future depends a lot on
what type of "snarly" behavior Tommy
has been doing. Hissing and growling
(by either cat) are normal behaviors when
a new cat is introduced. This can be
eased by separating the cats by a door for
a week or so, exchanging odors by taking

turns allowing the cats to roam, rotating
food bowls and litter boxes, etc. An inter-
im step before getting these two together,
nose to nose, could be placing one cat in a
carrier in the middle of the other's room,
for increasing periods of time.
Mild growling and hissing should di-
minish with time. Stalking, caterwauling
(screaming) and chasing (with vocaliza-
tions) are bad signs, as is urine marking
(spraying). The cats may call a truce and
forever avoid each other or they may mu-
tually groom and sleep together. As long
as there is no overt aggression (fighting),
they should be fine.

Looking south through Pasaje Rubio

Portal to the Past

Hidden within the Pasaje Rubio, Guatemala City's
oldest restaurant never forgets Text and photos by Dwight Wayne Coop

E Portal, Guatemala City's oldest operat-
ing restaurant-and the core of today's
asaje Rubio-could have inspired
Hemingway's A Clean, Well-Lighted Place.
This short story explores the question of
whether good is possible in an impersonal
universe. The proprietor (of the coffee house
described by the title) tries to answer by nur-
turing his customers, although he is an athe-
ist. To his poorest regulars, those with no-
where to go, he offers refuge, free coffee and
a whiff of bohemian leisure. Life, for him, is
the sole chance to practice good. Believers
would cheer his goodness but assert that it
comes of his creation in a Divine image.
Such questions have been debated at El
Portal for decades, even among enemies
who checked their aggression at the door
but unsheathed fighting words at the tables.
The place is aptly named: portals, says Noah
Webster, are "doorways, particularly large
and impressive ones." Yet this portal to the
past-in Zone One's scrawled-over Time
56 revuemag.com

Tunnel-is called El Portalito because it
excites more affection than awe.
The big room started life in 1928 as a typ-
ing academy, whose tap-tapping and ring-
dinging ceased its thousand-footed march
through the Rubio's corridors after four
years. Carlos Brolo and Marcos Chivez,
two waiters from the (still-standing) Hotel
Royal Palace down the Sexta, pooled their
tips to start their own restaurant here. The
latter's grandsons, Willy and Rodolfo, are
the current proprietors.
Immortality was conferred on the Por-
talito one night in 1936, the first year of
the notorious Huelga de Dolores-an
outgrowth of a Lenten parade originating
from a medical school then located a dozen
blocks southeast of the Rubio. Today the
"strike" has become a demonstration by
hooded universitarios, but even from the
start it had a ribald grand marshal-el Rey
Feo-who is born on a litter. David Pinto,
the first "king," decreed .continued on ollowng page

RIGHT: The Pasaje Rubio after remodeling

that the huelga would end at El Portalito
with a boozing session and recitals of the
huelga's "drinking anthem," composed by
future medical doctor Jos6 Barnoya. Today
the huelga begins elsewhere, but it still ends
here. A Portalito "invention" still enjoyed
by the marchers is the mixed-beer shot;
it was the first Guatemalan institution to
blend local and imported brews into special
formulas that claim followings.
Every Guatemalan president since the
1930s has been a customer-though rarely
while in power, since the room is an invit-
ing setting for assassins. Col. Carlos Cas-
tillo Armas was especially fond of El Por-
talito; but once in power (1955-57), only his
valet came over-to retrieve take-out for
the boss. Nobel laureate Miguel Angel As-
turias was another regular, and today you
can sit at his favorite table. Countless lesser
luminaries, politicos and enforcers were,
and still are, among the clientele. But it
was also a place for families, which explains
why it remains a bar for people who do not
like bars. Folks who were children during
World War II now bring their grandchil-
dren for sips of lemonade and nostalgia.
During the early years of the 35-year
Civil Conflict that began in 1961, El Por-
talito was considered a relatively safe place
to vent dissent. It lost this honor one night
in 1972 when a student named Oliverio said
too much. Later, when it was time to call it
58 revuemag.com

a night, he and a friend sauntered out into
Pasaje Rubio-the rest of which was dark af-
ter 7. While exiting onto 6th Avenue, he was
gunned down on the spot now commemo-
rated by three brass plaques. His friend was
"disappeared" and never seen again. Did
Oliverio die in vain? It seemed so then. But
today, you can say anything in El Portalito.
The restaurant's history is colored not
only by its guests, but its employees. Waiter
"Chepe" Contreras, now deceased, was
for 40 years the "bartender to Presidents"
and the probable repository of state secrets.
From 1933 to 1953, the musicians on the
dais overlooking the restaurant were four
blind men playing harp, violin, piano and
flute. Their name? Armonia en Tinieblas-
Harmony in the Darkness. They were fol-
lowed for 25 years by an organist who, in
1978, was replaced by a marimba band.
While the world around it becomes more
globally uniform, El Portalito abides in all
things Guatemalan.
This is what we find most endearing
about it. The menu and recipes have not
changed in a lifetime, because they were
"authentic" long before food was ever called
such. Nor do the d6cor and ambience
change; the photos on the wall date from
the 1940s and, except for two cable moni-
tors behind the bar, nothing is different. El
Portalito is a social black box, a constant in
time, a portal to the past. O4

Fin sr Fondo

by Dwight Wayne Coop

H ere comes another cluster of
words-fin, fondo and extremo-
that combine to express a key
English word (end). Methinks it would be
nice if we could just hybridize them into
a something like "findo." However, there's
the danger that such a word could jump
out of a skinny phrasebook and into pidgin
Spanish as a noun: "el findo." Can't you just
imagine someone calling a worthy pizzeria
a goodo findo"?
Back when folks spoke Latin, finals
meant final and funds meant bottom.
Let's go to the funds of fin/fondo by first
getting out of the way some equivalents
of these English words. Final in Spanish
is usually iltimo (meaning not "ultimate"
but "last"). The Spanish word final exists,
but with little life of its own. You see it in
phrases like poner punto final a ("to put an
end to"). This is what my wife wants to do
to my trips to Becky's Bar in Panajachel,
even though I never "drink" there. Bottom,
in Spanish, becomes base for many physi-
cal and metaphorical foundations, whereas
trasero is the word used in mixed company
for that, um, part of the anatomy the wife
must think I go to Becky's to look at (quick
note: I don't).
Aside from fondo and fin, extremo often
translates end, mainly in the sense of "tip"
64)) revuemag.com


for anything ideological (as in English) or
tubular (candles, pipes, pencils, caterpillars,
etc.). Trotsky burnt the candle at both extre-
mos while writing down his opinions extre-
mas. All in all, extreme is not too zenny.
Fin is straightforward, especially for
movie buffs who recall that movies made in
the 40s and 50s concluded with the uppity
Frenchfin at thefin of the final scene. And
the common phrase por fin means finally.
Fin is also the word for end in geometry
and for time periods, lives, events, and civi-
lizations. Admiral Nelson found two fines
in the battle of Trafalgar: the fin of his life
(he was fatally wounded), and thefin of the
combined French-Spanish fleet (Nelson's
costly victory could also be called a meta,
the proper word for goal).
Fin means purpose or aim in the phrases
afin de and con elfin de. Before a verb, they
mean, "with the goal of" or "in order" or
simply "so." The wife could tell her knitting
circle, "I went to Becky's Bar afin deponer
punto final alas visits que mi esposo hace."

Fondo is zennier than fin. For abstrac-
tions, you need fin. For physical things, es-
pecially things big enough to enter-caves,
buildings, railcars, peninsulas, fuselages,
attics, cul-de-sacs, and the wardrobe in

The Zen of.,. cont.from page 64
universe-you need fondo. Boats may be an exception, because the Spaniards were seafar-
ers who thought up nautical synomyms. "All right, boys," Columbus might have told his
crew, "it's a long way to India, especially since we're going the wrong way. So let's think
up some good words for stern and bow, so we can quit saying fondo-this, fondo that. It's
something to do!" They already had a word for deep-profundo-and depths-las hon-
duras. This word went on to become the name of a country, perhaps because the coastal
waters are deep enough to drown in if you have had enough rum.
The first zenniness of fondo is that it means both end and bottom. If your movement
is lateral, it means the former; if you're descending, it means the latter. The second zenni-
ness is that for lateral movement, fondo is relative. The fondo of, say, a row of offices in a
government ministry is the end where the speaker is not. When you arrive at the recep-
tion desk and ask whom you need to see, you might be sent all the way to the licenciada
at the fondo. And so, after you go there and stand in line (ideally with a copy of Revue),
the licenciada might explain that you're in the wrong place, and that you need to return
to reception for redirection (perhaps to thefondo of another floor). Where is the reception
desk? Alfondo, "at the back."
Reader, maybe I have not reached the fondo, but I have reached the fin. 0
And so I have. This is the fin of "Zen of..."I want to thank all those readers who have,
over the years, followed this column ..i i especially those who sent compliments, ideas for
future columns, and the occasional correction or barb. There is talk of compiling the columns
into a book. But for now, from one student of Spanish to many others, iQue les vaya bien!
PS: Look for my new column, starting next month.

Optical illusion
Victory or defeat? Look closer to see both.

Fair weather fiance
One mid-afternoon on a sunny day, a golfer
teed up his ball. After a few practice swings,
he steps up to his ball and gets ready to drive
the first hole. Just before he swings, a woman
in a wedding gown comes running up from
the parking lot. She's got tears streaming
down her face. Just as she reaches the raised
tee, she screams out, "I can't believe it! How
could you do that?" The golfer calmly takes
a swing and drives the ball straight down the
fairway. He looks at the woman, as he puts
his driver back in his bag and says, "Hey...I
said 'only if it's raining'."

Less than bright
As two NBA basketball referees walked
through the countryside, they noticed some
tracks. First said, 'Deer tracks?' Second said
'No, bear tracks.' However, the conversation
ended abruptly when a train hit them.

An airline captain was training a new,
blonde stewardess. The route they were flying
had a stay-over in another city, so upon their
arrival, the captain showed the stewardess the
best place for airline personnel to eat, shop
and stay overnight.
The next morning as the pilot was preparing
the crew for the day's route, he noticed the
new stewardess was missing.
He knew which room she was in at the hotel
and called her up wondering what happened
to her. She answered the phone, sobbing, and
said she couldn't get out of her room.
"You can't get out of your room?" the cap-
tain asked, "Why not?"
The stewardess replied, "There are only three
doors in here," she cried, "one is the bathroom,
one is the closet, and one has a sign on it that
says, 'Do Not Disturb'!"

Spreading the news
A man came down with the flu and was
forced to stay home one day. He was glad for
the interlude because it taught him how much
his wife loved him.
She was so thrilled to have him around that
when a delivery man or the mailman arrived,
she ran out and yelled,
"My husband's home! My husband's home!"

A doctor vacationing on the Riviera met an
old lawyer friend and asked him what he was
doing there.
The lawyer replied, "Remember that lousy
real estate I bought? Well, it caught fire, so
here I am with the fire insurance proceeds.
What are you doing here?"
The doctor replied, "Remember that lousy
real estate I had in Mississippi? Well, the river
overflowed, and here I am with the flood in-
surance proceeds."
The lawyer looked puzzled. "Gee," he asked,
"how did you start a flood?"

First impression
It was their first date, and she'd shown the
patience of a saint as he babbled on and on
about his hobbies, his pet peeves, his driving
techniques, and even the standards he used
to choose his barber. Finally, he came up for
air and said, "But enough about me. Let's talk
about you." She breathed a sigh of relief. He
went on, "What do you think about me?"

Art imitating life
John's dad picked him up from school to
take him to a dental appointment. Knowing
the parts for the school play were supposed
to be posted today, he asked his son if he got
a part.
John enthusiastically announced that he'd
gotten a part. "I play a man who's been mar-
ried for twenty years."
"That's great, son. Keep up the good work
and before you know it they'll be giving you
a speaking part."

TimeTunnels ofZoneOne cont.from page15
A coin-and-stamp store is a miniature
museum and one of only three numismatic
retailers in town. It is one of a dozen locales
exhibiting everything from taxidermy to
antique knives and dolls. Almost next door
is where the late Policarpio Mejia, "King of
Luck," once reigned. Owing to self-promo-
tion and customer superstition, Policarpio
and his heirs are periodically celebrated in
newspapers as a source of winning lottery
tickets. For years, people from the prov-
inces went out of their way to visit the king.
There is a belief that Pasaje Rubio itself is
lucky, so the lottery in every permutation
has become its chief commodity.
A certain Frenchman visited 45 years
ago-but not to see Policarpio. He had
read a mention of Pasaje Rubio in a yellow-
ing pre-World-War-II architectural journal
and-as a photographer-was intrigued.
But Rubio was already in decay, and the
man left in a huff without taking a single
photo. Why was he blind to its charms?
Perhaps from his jading acquaintance with
early malls in rundown parts of Paris. But
in Guatemala, nothing compares with Ru-
bio, then or now.
Betancourt, a dimly-lit stationer near
the asymmetric fork in Rubio's middle,
resembles an outside storefront; nobody
knew, when it opened, how centro com-
mercial stores were supposed to look. The
place is layered with the strata of time and
the ghosts of Guatemalan intellectuals who
once browsed the shelves.
"Rubio," explains Betancourt's propri-
etress, "was a living ruin for decades be-
cause Mr. Rubio sold out to the individual
shopkeepers. We couldn't agree on any-
thing. When the place needed painting, we
couldn't agree on the color. The floors and
windows needed fixing, too. But when we
passed the hat, some merchants didn't chip
in. Others squabbled over what their share
should be."

Next to Betancourt, you could buy a
book from Edgar Jahnig. His hole-in-the-
wall nook was a pasaje within a pasaje, wide
enough for just one person at a time. His
family immigrated from Germany when
he was a boy, and Jacobo Arbenz was Presi-
dent when Edgar opened for business in
1951. Over the years, he became a beacon
for Germanic bibliophiles, and every third
bargain book on his sagging shelves was in
German. A steel portdn now seals Don Ed-
gar's memory; he died last year.
There is more to Rubio than its ossified
locales. As you stroll through, look not just
left and right, but up at the dilapidated
grandeur of its second and third floors,
and you will feel you are in another era.
Take a stairway to the upper levels, which
are mostly small apartments. From behind
the spindled railings you can look down on
Rubio's movie-set vibrancy and wonder: "if
these walls could talk ..."
And so they can-to mice. On the
other tine of Rubio's fork was a wedding
accessory shop, Novias Camelia. Over the
decades, for a few hours each day, a gifted
raconteuse showed up to work her day job.
The Rubio owes its private literary heritage
to the fertile imagination of Maria del Car-
men Escobar, most famously in 49 Cents of
Happiness, a novel narrated by a mouse. The
joys and heartbreaks it chronicles are thinly
fictionalized, giving us a snapshot that is
gossipy and whimsical on the one hand, but
instructive on the other.
In Rubio's core, near the fork, is its
most time-proof artifact: Guatemala's old-
est continuously operated restaurant, El
Portal, which-like Maria Escobar-is a
whole other story.
In 2008, Rubio was remodeled and re-
painted for the first time that anyone remem-
bers. But it is only a makeover; the place is
still timeless, still bathed in gold, somewhere
you can touch the city's soul. 0

"Nothing similar was known in a con-
vent of this order nor in any other for wom-
en or men..." (Historia General de Guate-
mala, Vol. III). A column in the vaulted
basement, 10 feet in diameter, supports a
round patio above, surrounded by 18 cells.
Suggested uses of the basement, with ex-
ceptional acoustics, include food storage,
clothes drying and weaving.
The cells of the second level raise fur-
ther speculation. Each is supplied with wa-
ter channeled from a higher level. Recesses
inside each cell, each with a drain and ven-
tilation holes above, suggest toilets. Were
these cells used for the nuns' private retreat?
Were they for novices...or sick or aged nuns?
Could they have been used for detention...
or a public bath predating the convent? Any
of the suggested uses can be refuted.
The tower's complicated hydraulic system
included two bathtubs with connections to
heated water. "For an order that was oper-
ating with extreme poverty, existing on the
alms of the people and professing an austere
life, the luxuries of this tower are entirely
inconsistent," wrote Verle Annis (The Archi-
tecture of Antigua Guatemala: 1543-1773).
Luis Lujin Muioz assured that the tower
was built at the same time as the rest of the
convent, while Annis concluded that the
convent was complete without the tower.

El Carmen
Church in 1900,
deemed unsuit-
ablefor the
in 1726

ElEdificio Circular del Convento de Capu-
chinas (University of San Carlos, 1994) goes
one further: "There is evidence that Porres
built the church but not that he built the
tower." They agree with Annis that "There
is no record of its construction date." This
opens possibilities for its uses before and/or
after its inclusion in the convent. It is known
that, after 1773, the round patio's uses in-
cluded drying coffee, growing corn, dying
and making fireworks or gunpowder. In any
case, it was unique "with no counterpart in
the Americas or Spain."
A tour through the tower today raises more
questions than answers. "Despite the various
explanations assigned to the circular build-
ing...there is no single satisfactory explana-
tion for its construction or use." (Annis)
Diego de Porres, named master archi-
tect of the city of Santiago, was also named
principal plumber because of his experience
in running water works. His work in the
Capuchin Church and convent, the fifth
and final convent founded in the town, re-
mains to his tribute.
The Anthropological and History Insti-
tute of Guatemala began restoration in 1950,
and in 1972 the National Council for the
Protection of La Antigua Guatemala (Con-
sejo) located its offices in the convent. Cur-
rently the government of Taiwan is working
with the Consejo to implement a museum
on the site, scheduled to open in August.
While Porres built in Guatemala, the
Peter and Paul Cathedral was built in Rus-
sia. While music rang in the Church of El
Carmen, J. S. Bach served as music direc-
tor and choirmaster of St. Thomas Church
in Leipzig, Germany; and the Vienna Boys'
Choir was more than 200 years old. Thomas
Jefferson wasn't born yet.

Despite jets, missiles and electronic devices,
man has still not invented anything that
goes faster than a vacation.
Giving every man a vote has no more
made men wise and free than Christianity
has made them good. -Mencken

Another way to solve the unemployment problem
is to invent a machine that does the work of one
man and takes a dozen men to operate.
Men are the only animals who devote themselves
assiduously to making one another unhappy.
