Cover: Jungle green by Thor Janson

Green has pervaded our July pages in several shades and forms, starting with Jungle green on the cover. Few can capture natural beauty as vibrantly as phototographer and wildlife conservationist Thor Janson. From the palette of Ken Veronda’s Sensuous Guatemala we are offered Emerald in all of its splendor. In Could Weeds Turn Guatemala Green?, Oliver Thornwhistle looks at two common weeds that could hold the keys to independence from petroleum imports. The green from Dwight Wayne Coop’s article comes from The Heart of the Forest, 40 hectares dedicated to an education and reforestation center. A Vertical Garden was Al Thompson’s green solution to the eyesore of his neighbor’s new, very high, white wall.

July brings celebrations all month long in honor of Antigua’s patron saint. On the opposite page local historian Elizabeth Bell answers the question Who was St. James? You can find information on the Santiago festivities in DateBook and on page 9. Check our smart-phone-friendly website for updates (revuemag.com).

Throughout the magazine you will find a sampling of memorable photographs taken by a friend of the Revue (and many others) who passed away last month. Atitlán’s Gerald (Jerry) Edward Smith is fondly remembered in Border Crossing on page 100.

Also in this issue… Joy Houston on Guatemalan Coffee, Bob Makransky on Guatemalan history, Kathryn Rousso on Guatemalan gourds and Dianne Carofino on Guatemalan food. Feel free to browse.
