The American Society

of Guatemala

The American Society of Guatemala
(ASG) was founded on June 14,
1960 by a group of American citi-
zens residing in Guatemala. The society was
created to provide a focal point to strengthen
community ties and provide an institution
to represent the interests of its members. It
helps them contribute in situations where
citizens of the United States as a group can
usefully participate in promoting the ties
of friendship and mutual understanding
between Guatemala and the United States,
as well as among American citizens living
here. From its earliest days, Americans doing
business in Guatemala (and across Central
America) have been able to strengthen their
associations through the society.

During its first half-century, the society
undertook a wide range of charitable en-
terprises. One of the most substantial and
earliest is the Milagro Medical complex in
Mixco. In 1966, businessman William Luce
gave a building and grounds to the ASG for
a medical clinic. Numerous ASG fundrais-
6)) revuemag.com

ing activities, as well as cooperation from
the Swiss, Italian and German communities
in Guatemala, have resulted in a complex
of buildings that include a dentist's office,
a community center and a library. In 1990
then-Ambassador Tom Struck formally
handed the project over to the community,
and the center is currently managed by Vi-
talino Cuca.

Historically, the ASG has focused on good-
works projects such as providing building,
cleaning and paint supplies to the Escuela
de Los Estados Unidos in zone 5; donating
several computers to the IGER (Guatemala
Institute for Radio-based Education); and
providing scholarships for children partici-
pating in the FotosKids program which uses
photography, graphic arts and scholarships
to give children at risk in poor areas an op-
portunity to get ahead. Caring for children
with HIV, the Hospice San Jos6 in San Lu-
cas, between Guatemala City and La Anti-
gua, has received educational materials and
cleaning supplies from ASG....contnued on page 36

Deciding where your next dining
out experience is going to take
place entails some decisions. What
kind of food do you and your companians
feel like indulging in? Gourmet? Local?
International? What price range? What kind
of ambience? Formal? Casual? Breakfast or
lunch? Dinner here, dessert there?
The decisions become even tougher
when there are so many wonderful eateries
to choose from. The Revue can help you with
your quest. Throughout the year, we will be
publishing various "Dining Samplers" from
restaurants around the country.
In February we start with the Antigua
Dining Sampler. Presented are over 80
palatable possibilities, from traditional
Guatemalan breakfasts to complex world-
class desserts. With over 40 restaurants
represented, we've also included some
beverages and appetizers. iBuen provecho!
If you have some particularly favorite
dining choices to include in our future
issues, we would love to get your feedbackk
at dining@revuemag.com.

Of course, there are plenty of other things
to do this month besides eat. Included
in our pages is a Walking Tour of "Old"
Pana; an excursion to a young winery
and where you can taste the fruits of their
first vintage; a heads-up on next month's
Festival Atitlin; some Valentine's Day
musings; Photo Ops from Guatemala
City's central market and from the beaches
of El Salvador; and there are always plenty
of fun options in the DateBook cultural
calendar, including a few very interesting
and interactive charity events.
If you missed seeing the 7th Annual
Revue Photo Issue in January, it's all online
at www.revuemag.com. Enjoy February!

A Walking Tour of

"Old" Panajachel

Until you do Uptown Pana on foot, you have not done Pana

P anajachel is firstly a atlk,:ng city. If
you drive in it, you soon tire of the
paucity of two-way streets. And ev-
ery rocky contour of those streets registers
on the pant-seat of every chicken-bus rider.
Tuktuks look fun, until you actually ride in
one. And much of Pana is not overly bike-
friendly. So, unless pogo sticks catch on, feet
remain the preferred vehicle.

Pana, unlike La Antigua, is no predictable
grid. There are countless blind corners and
weird angles, all inviting, particularly in Up-
town, or Old Pana, the town's oldest quarter
(downtown, or "El Centro" is considered
the spot where Calle Santander starts).
Uptown is the most walkable part of Pana,
and its corners beckon to be rounded and
savored with the slowness that only pedes-
trians can succor.

Uptown is eclectic, given its compactness.
I could argue that visitors to Pana have not
really visited unless they traipse through
Uptown. Everyone strolls Santander and
the waterfront, but Uptown is Panajachel
at its most authentic. You meet few or no
peddlers in Old Pana, and it is an arresting
counterpoint to the "touristy" face of that
other Pana.

START at the intersection of Calle Prin-
cipal and Palop6 Road. There sits (1) El
Ancla, Pana's original general store, where
they still sell a little of everything that is not
perishable, from stationery to fishing line.
It is Pana's oldest retailer in continuous op-
eration, a success owed to the Mazarriegos
family's policy of standing behind every-
thing they sell since 1956.

The next place meriting a stop once oc-

Polish couple. They looked lost, so I offered
directions. It seemed that they were asking
me if I knew the "Maya Canuck." Well, I
did know Rick McArthur, a Canadian who
speaks Maya Kakchikel in his work with
Wycliffe translators, and who had been
called this. But when I offered to lead them
to Rick, they were confounded.

Continue up the street to (6) Pana's new

The old mercado, a smelly warren of ram-
shackle stalls, would never have been a stop
on any walking tour. Trash and vermin were
never far from the wares on sale. But today's
mercado enjoys a planned layout that is a
paragon of space utility, airiness, aesthetics
and sanitation. The expansive rain shield
protects from the elements while allowing
full ventilation, as well as full exploitation
of natural light. Despite this manicured
presentation of a highlands marketplace, no
authenticity was sacrificed. You never for-
get that you are in Guatemala, since all the
usual ingredients are present: produce stalls,
dry-goods sellers, alcoves of meatcutters,
humble diners, clothiers and a local for reed
baskets and mats. Your tour should include
some roaming here.

its arched windows and wrought-iron grat-

in 2000. It owes its existence to indefatiga-
ble American author Ann Cameron and her
husband Bill, and doubles as the town mu-
seum. Labeled exhibits of historical pictures
and textiles adorn the walls and pylons. The
most poignant exhibit is a page from one of
the 8,000 books destroyed in the fire.

FOOD & WINE text and photos by Ira Lewis

A rewarding excursion to Guatemala'sfirst winery to
produce wine from locally-grown grapes since colonial times

Hidden behind a coffee finca on the
lower slopes of volcano El Agua is
the first winery to produce wine
from Guatemalan-grown grapes since co-
lonial times: Chateau DeFay. Jacques and
Angie DeFay recently presented their first
vintage after years of finding the right
grapes, some false starts, lots of very hard
work and years of nurturing the vines. The
vintage is 2007, but the wines have only
just become available to the public.

After a four-kilomoter drive down a dirt
road from Santa Maria de Jesds toward
Palin, it comes as quite a surprise to find
this turreted chateau, which would be per-
fectly at home in Bordeaux or Italy. A gate
on the left with the discreet initials "CDF"
marks the entrance.
16)) revuemag.com

The three wines of the first vintage, even com-
ing from young vines, show promise. Could
Guatemala be another improbable area that
will become a wine-producing country be-
cause the right soil and weather conditions
exist? It all starts with one winery.

For example, North Carolina was not a
wine-producing state 20 years ago. Then
tobacco demand fell, a few farms planted
grapes and some started to make wine. As
the potential became apparent, experienced
vintners came into the area and now wine
cognoscenti are starting to refer to the
North Carolina Piedmont region as the So-
noma Valley of the East Coast.

Jacques DeFay had previously made two
visits to Guatemala, totaling about seven

weeks, when he was working for the Inter-
American Development Bank. When he
decided to retire, he and Angie returned to
Guatemala to look for a farm where they
could grow raspberries. After looking for
some time, they bought the coffee finca on
the lower slopes of El Agua 10 years ago.
There was not enough water for raspber-
ries, but Angie planted asparagus, which
she still grows, and presents as a tasty pre-
serve-a very light pickle which enhances
the natural flavor of the asparagus.

Even though people said he was crazy,
Jacques decided to try grapes, and the first
vines were planted nine years ago. Strictly
by trial and error, he tried several varieties
before finding some that took well to the
volcanic soil and the seasonal variations of
the area. No one could give advice except
"don't waste your time."

Once he had his grapes, Jacques drove
ahead with his plans for a winery. This was
not to be a hobby but rather a serious win-
ery producing the best wine possible from
Guatemalan grapes.

A chateau was built which, besides having
family living quarters, could also be used for
wine tasting, receptions and other events. An
18-hole miniature golf course was placed on
the landscaped grounds as well as a round,
glassed-in barbeque pavilion.

The stainless steel winemaking equipment is state of the art. The fermenters and aging tanks have
cooling bands to control the temperature.

Stainless-steel winemaking equipment was
imported from the United States by way of
Italy and France, and an Italian winemaker,
Bruno Coppola, was hired to develop the
wines. Jacques had worked with very little
assistance developing the vines but decided
he really needed a trained winemaker to
properly control the winemaking process.
Coppola was trained in Italy, worked there
at his uncle's winery, then added four more
years experience in wineries in the Sonoma
Valley and two years in New York, where
Jacques met him. He'd gone on to Bra-
zil and then to Italy as a consultant when
Jacques persuaded him to come to Guate-

great promise. Two of the three, Angie's

from the dry, full-bodied wines most ap-
preciated in Guatemala.

There are other wines of the world, which
have different standards and different
tastes. They are neither better nor worse-
they are different and many are excellent. It
is next to impossible to find in Guatemala a
Beerenauslese from a top Rhine vineyard, a
great Sauterne or a dry Oloroso sherry, be-
cause they do not conform to the accepted
taste standards.

Angie's Blend is one of the few dessert wines
on the market here. When served with
some pieces of good chocolate or a simple
pound cake, Angie's Blend gives you an epi-
curean dessert. The most expensive wine in
the world happens to be a dessert wine, a
Sauterne made by the Chateau D'Yquem.

The Germans also use these off-dry, fruity
wines to stand up to highly spiced dishes-
curry or Kak-Ik. It also works well with
strong cheeses.

The French make and enjoy some really excel-
lent ros6. White merlot is a wine to sip and
enjoy, a tasty aperitif that starts with a sweet-
ish grape flavor and has a dry aftertaste. It also
would go along with mild chicken and other
not-so-strong, dishes.

The Chardonnay comes with a strong min-
eral taste from the volcanic soil. Alongside
a good California Chardonnay or a Blanc
de Blanc of France, it loses right now.
Still it has some levels of taste that show
promise. It is worth trying with strong fish

dishes or strong boquitas. It should be served
very cold. With a few more years to develop,
it could become a very good wine. O1

Was I really learning Spanish? Sometimes I was discouraged, sometimes
Isaw progress, but I was ever aware oftheprivilege ofsitting afternoons in
a beautifulgarden under aprefect blue sky learning a beautiful language.

The day I asked to ride a cowboy was
the day I knew I needed help. Trav-
eling in Central America without
Spanish-language skills gets a little stress-
ful. I arrived in the region with a ground-
ing in high school French, a smattering of
university Italian grammar and a compact
Spanish Phrase Finder, confidently plan-
ning to travel and pick up a little Spanish
along the way.
Ordering breakfast seemed to go well
enough in Nicaragua, until someone in San
Juan del Sur pointed out that I had been or-

during my Thursdays "over easy." The words
jueves and huevos sounding pretty much the
same to my gringa ears, I remained smug
in having mastered the expression for "over
easy." And though typically eggs did con-
tinue to arrive on my plate, I nonetheless
felt a growing loss of confidence whenever
they arrived scrambled.
My confidence continued to erode un-
til the day it no longer existed in Costa
Rica. While contemplating a wonderful
horseback ride I'd taken along a white-sand
Guanacaste beach, a bad feeling crept over

me. I verified it in my dictionary. Yes, at the
stable I had indeed asked for a calballl/:o to
ride for two hours. Then it made sense why
all the stablemen had started to laugh and
point at each other. Which gentleman did
she fancy? they no doubt discussed. I felt a
further humiliation recalling that after giv-
ing me a good look up and down, they had
quickly saddled up a frisky caballo.
My Fodor's guide, listing 25 language
schools in Guatemala, assured me that this
was the Spanish-language teaching capi-
tal of the world. Arriving in La Antigua,
I started spending every afternoon test-
ing the patience of my wonderful tutor,
who would take my French-Italian hybrid
imitation of Spanish to something ... well,
something closer to Spanish.
Learning a new language is neither for
the timid nor the middle-aged. Many after-
noons I thought that my brain was overheat-
ing and sending smoke out my ears. I cre-
ated a daily ritual of generously offering to
treat my tutor to coffee and cake as a device
to buy an extra 10-minute break. Mentally
exhausted most nights, I'd fall asleep just
before 9, color-coded flash cards of irregular
verbs dropping from my hands. Was I really
learning Spanish? Sometimes I was discour-
aged, sometimes I saw progress, but I was
ever aware of the privilege of sitting after-
noons in a beautiful garden under a prefect
blue sky learning a beautiful language.

We were interrupted one afternoon by
a man who apologetically asked my tutor
to find someone from the school office. We
had just been reviewing verbs. No doubt
conscious of interrupting my paid time, he
pressed me to pronounce some verbs while
she was gone, pointing at them on the
white board. I confidently pronounced the
word volver, meaning to return, confident-
ly because we had just been working on
its pronunciation. No! he said loudly and
emphatically, you just said ... something
else I couldn't catch and proceeded to pro-
nounced it just as loudly and emphatically.
From my angle with him standing and me
sitting I had a good view of the roof of his
mouth and most of his dental work. And
from my angle I could clearly see the fuller
formation of the vowel "o" then the tip of
his tongue as it touched the back of his top
teeth to form the final "r" sound. It was
quite a graphic demonstration. I repeated
the verb, with an awareness of what need-
ed changing in my pronunciation. No! he
repeated just as empathically and demon-
strated again. At that point I resorted to my
usual defense mode and giggled. I indulged
him by trying again, all the while hoping
for my real teacher to volver, more apprecia-
tive than ever of having a professional tutor
and not someone off the street with little
understanding of foreign-language teach-
ing. My tutor and I contue on page

INTERVIEW by Laura McNamara photos by Geovany Flores

,. . of vast oorful j. ,l."-
to wiw~ lr EUP ~I t~opLrh'~~z"GjdI

What does the mural depict?
Jos6 Luis L6pez Godoy: The central idea
behind the mural is that it was created for
primary children. It is focused upon Maya
icons and iconography, mixing a lot of
trends-from a little cubism, naive art and
pop art-so that the children have a little
art history.

Geovany Flores: The making of the mural
was inspired by the Popol Vuh. The Popol
Vuh is a sacred book of the K'iche' Maya
and narrates the creation of vegetation, ani-
mals, the first man made from corn, and,
afterwards, the origin of the K'iche' Maya.
The Popol Vuh is like the Bible for the Maya
... the perfect, human-divine creation for
the gods are the men of corn. You can see
in the central part of the mural a tree with
corncobs. This narrates the creation of the
first men. The tree also signifies the central
axis of the universe and narrates the three
planes that make up the terrestrial world.

What inspired you to make the mural?
Flores: Jos6 took the initiative and contrib-
uted the first ideas ... he went to the school
and spoke with the director. The director
said, yes, we could make the mural.

Godoy: The kids gave us the inspiration.
We did a quiz where we summoned all the
kids to make a drawing of what worried
or bothered them the most. In the draw-
ings we found, with much surprise, that
they were most affected by the violence in
their lives. So we wanted to relate in the
mural something more, showing different

What do you hope the work
Godoy: That the children see a little light
through all these drawings, that they see
a little hope through these stories related
through the mural. That, yes, one can: one
can accomplish things through little means.

- of A.

LEFT AND ABOVE: Putting the finishing touches on the mural at Escuela Mariano Navarrete

Flores: The mural also has other messag-
es, including the importance of voluntary
work as part of developing a community.
We began without money, we began with-
out anything, only with the idea... The
work was purely voluntary. I believe that
this is the message as well: the importance
of voluntary work and that it is possible to
do things if one really wants to.

How long have you been creating art?
Flores: Fifteen years researching art and
making art; studying the techniques of art.

Godoy: Honestly, I have devoted 10 years
to art. But, you bring something from
when you are a kid. You have this restless-
ness. Yet, I became 100 percent devoted
to expressing myself through a canvas 10
years ago.

Will you create more murals?
Flores: We have already started another
mural in a school in Jocotenango (Rafael
Rosales). We are on a break for many rea-
sons, including economic reasons. But we
are going to continue with this project...
We have intentions to continue making
projects in public spaces in our city.

Godoy: First and foremost, the idea was to
make a mural in order to reach out to the
people with our work. Not to maintain this
idea of elitism that one only keeps their art
inside a gallery when art can be created in
public spaces so that it reaches the entire
population. It is a way to make people aware
through art. And this is wonderful. O

Photography by Hans Namuth,
conservatorship and assembly by Cristina Orive
Proyecto Cultural El Sitio, Saturday, February 20, 7pm

Hans Namuth was born in Essen,
Germany in 1915. In 1933, short-
ly after Hitler came to power, he
was arrested for distributing anti-Nazi lit-
erature. To assure his safety, his father was
able to obtain a tourist visa permitting his
son to enter France. In 1936 Namuth trav-
eled from Paris to Barcelona, Spain, on a
work assignment with his friend, Georg

Reisner, to photograph the Workers Olym-
pics for Vu Magazine. The day before the
inauguration the Spanish Civil War broke
out. Namuth stayed on in Spain to docu-
ment the conflict. His photographs were
published in many magazines as well as the
book Spanisches Tagebuch 1936 (Nishen,
Berlin, 1986) ...contnued on page 122

Hans Namuth photographed the entire population
of Todos Santos Cuchumathn from 1978 to 1987;

DATE BOOK HIGHLIGHT by Roberto Luz www.festivalatitlan.com

Saturday, March 13
11lam to midnight

The Festival Atitl~n returns for its 9th
year, once again celebrating spring-
time with music, dance, theatre,
graphic art displays and workshops, plus a
great kid section, and a promise of a beauti-
ful day with family and friends outdoors on
the shores of Lake Atitlan. As is the custom,
the proceeds are donated to a local good
works project. In the past, proceeds from
the festival have benefited the Hospitalito
Atitlan, the SIEMBRA cloud forest reserve
Chaj Choj, the Atitlan cleanup committee
and a stove project, to name just a few.

This year 100 percent of the proceeds
will go to a local ecological educational and
informational project that will concentrate
on getting the word out to the nearby popu-
lation about the cyanobacteria breakout that
is threatening the health of Lake Atitlan.
On the drawing board are educational car-

How is Valentine's Day
celebrated in Guatemala?
ilentine's Day (Feb. 14) is celebrat-
ed by many people throughout the
world. In English-speaking countries,
it is the traditional day on which lovers express
their love for each other with Valentine's Day
cards (winged cupids are among the favor-
ites), flowers and special dinners. Commercial
valentines were introduced in the 1800s.
The history of St. Valentine-its patron
saint-is shrouded in mystery. Valentine's
Day contains vestiges of both Christian and
ancient Roman tradition. These legends go
back to the third century in Rome. When
Emperor Claudius II decided that single men
made better soldiers than those with wives, he
outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine,
a priest, defied Claudius and continued to
perform marriages for young lovers in secret.
When Valentine's actions were discovered,
Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
He was imprisoned and later beheaded
on Feb. 14, 269 A.D. Another legend has it
that Valentine was a Roman who was mar-
tyred for refusing to give up Christianity.
Pope Gelasius set aside Feb. 14 to honor St.
Valentine in 496 A.D.
In Spanish-speaking countries, Valentine's
Day is known as Dia del Carino, and it is com-
mon for friends, family members and lovers
to exchange hugs and small gifts. Chocolates
and roses seem to be the favorites. Showing
your affection to those you care about by a
phone call, text-message or even a flower re-
minds us of, truly, those who are close to us.
iFeliz Dia del Carifio!

The ASG also supports the annual Messiah
concert during Christmas season, proceeds
from the concert go to various local chari-
ties. In response to the recent drought and
ongoing hunger crisis in parts of the coun-
try, ASG, along with the American Legion,
contributed over 10,000 quetzales worth of
food with much of it going to help children
in the affected areas.

The society also organizes social gatherings
for its members and their guests every year.
In addition to the traditional Fourth of July
picnic, ASG holds seasonal festivities such
as Christmas dinners and other get-togeth-
ers, including pasta lunches, receptions and
other events that allow participants to share
the fellowship of Americans living abroad,
as well as encourage cooperation and assis-

As a final act of outreach to its fellow Amer-

SHOPPING text/photos by Michael Sherer

Quesofresco, queso de capas, queso dejalapa, queso de Peten,

queso de Taxisco: it's all here, deep down in the lower levels

ofthe Mercado Central in Zone One of Guatemala City.

Years ago, the market took place in
the grand plaza two blocks to the
west but as time went on and it grew
in size, the city decided to create a perma-
nent facility. Now located behind the Pal-
ace of the Archbishop, a block southeast
of the National Palace, the market is the
sprawling three-story indoor covered mar-
ket for crafts, foods and assorted oddities
that defy description.

There's a parking lot on the west side but
the entrance is tricky, i.e, narrow ... down
the steps takes you to the level with the

fountain and then down those stairs ... it's
arts, crafts, fabrics, textiles and key-chains.

Below that, the food section ... and a riot of
color and textures: bags of spices, mounds
of fresh fruit, vegetables, freshly cut to or-
der beef and chicken and the cheese sec-
tion. There are a few food stands, with stew
of some sort slowly simmering.

It can get a bit crowded and dark in some of
the corners and the children of the vendors
like to play 'hide and seek'... sort of like look-
ing for the flower section, if you can find it.

Presentation of a Traditional Maya Ball Game
Fundraiser for ChocoGuateMaya (www.chocoguatemaya.com)
February 27, 3pm at Centro Cultural la Azotea (see page 32)

T he Mayan ball game and its associated my-
Sthology were not only central to religious
Mayan belief. It was the first sport in the his-
tory of humanity, dating at least from 2,500
BC. The oldest ball court accurately dated was
discovered in Nakb6, Peten, Guatemala dating
from 500 BC.
The "I"-shaped court was made of stone and
was approximately 25 feet wide by 75 feet long,
although these measurements varied. Its walls
sloped inward, and hanging high on the walls,
approximately 27 feet off the ground, were stone
rings. The ball was between 10 and 12 inches in
diameter and made out of rubber.
The game was a combination of basketball,
volleyball and soccer. Two teams of two to 11
players would play the game. The players would
wear an arm protector and a hip protector to
protect themselves from the ball. The goal of
the game was to pass the ball through one of
the rings. The players would have to keep the

ball in motion using parts of their bodies, their
hips, thighs and forearms, but the use of hands
and feet was not allowed. Since the rings were
so high and players were not allowed to use their
hands, it was extremely difficult to get the ball
through a ring.
The ball game was very sacred to the Ma-
yas. It was an extension of their religion. The
game may have been a reenactment of the Ma-
yan myth of the "Hero Twins." In the myth,
the Hero Twins had to battle the gods of death
from the underworld by playing a ball game. In
the story, the Twins win and they rise into the
heavens to be the Sun and the Moon. The ball is
believed to represent the moon and the sun, and
the court represents Earth. The ball was kept in
the air, just as the sun and moon were always
in the sky. Many warriors and kings played the
game fiercely. In some cases the losers would be
killed, and would have their heads displayed in
front of the ball court. (4

Con much gusto cont.from page19
continued with our afternoon session. At
our break I was informed that the man was
the university-level oral language examiner
for the school. I left early that day just after
coffee and cake.
After a number weeks in La Antigua I
was reluctantly called back home to deal
with family matters. My final afternoon
was spent doing last-minute sightseeing and
souvenir shopping. I bought coffee in hand-
woven bags to bring home as gifts. I visited
the cathedral ruins as the sun mellowed the
stone in the late afternoon. Crossing town,
I stopped to rest on a bench in Parque Cen-
tral. As I got my sandals shined, a woman
in traditional Mayan dress with the de ri-
gueur baby tied to her body approached me
to sell her necklaces. I politely declined-
no gracias. She sat down with a sigh on the
bench beside me saying she was tired. She

proceeded to tell me she had four children,
worked in the park from 9 until 5 every
day, went home, looked after her children,
then sat up every night making necklaces.
I asked her such things as where she lived
and how far away it was. And it was only
when I heard her answering my last ques-
tions that it hit me, I was taking part in
a fluent conversation in Spanish! Not only
that, but every transaction in my day had
been in Spanish. Now a more sophisticat-
ed discussion, perhaps about the effect of
globalization on the price of coffee beans,
would have to wait for my next "semester"
in La Antigua but for that moment I was
jubilant. No more cowboys for me.
I gently bartered and bought a jade
necklace. Standing, I asked her to put the
necklace over my head. Proudly and with
great dignity I left the park. I had just held
my graduation ceremony. 0
