On the cover this month is yet another stunningly beautiful photo by Freddy Murphy, one of our regular contributing photographers. Semuc Champey is one of those special places that Guatemala has an abundance of, and the story of this getaway for a first-time visitor starts on page 17.

On page 14 is an inspiring story of hope. Rescued from violent homes or desperately poor family settings, the students at Esperanza Juvenil receive above-par schooling, nutritious meals and a solid chance for a lifetime of success.

The Peace Corps just celebrated its 50th anniversary, which is covered by Matt Bokor on page 21. There are also four anecdotal stories from the ranks.

This month’s menu also includes Alerts for two restaurants’ menu updates, and coverage of a store that is a shopper’s paradise for the casual cook as well as the professional restaurateur.

Of course we haven’t forgotten that special day for our beloved mothers (that means you, MamaLue). Dwight Wayne Coop delves into the cultivation of the roses that we give to express our love.

There’s lots more fun stuff to see and do if you keep flipping the pages. Here’s wishing you a great month of May.
