May 2013 in Revue Magazine
Mother’s day graces our cover this month as we give thanks and appreciation for their love and nurturing. As well, many NGOs work to assist children, don’t miss reading about the KIDS restaurant. For more on other projects that assist children, see DateBook with listings including tours of Open Windows, Niños de Guatemala and Common Hope; the Rainbow Café lecture series features talks by Caminando por la Paz (focusing on education); and the Tejidos Cotzal group.
Month of Museums highlights Guatemala City’s Botanical Gardens, The Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology and the Museum of Modern Art Carlos Mérida; in Panajachel treat yourself to an underwater adventure, Unlocking Samabaj, at the Museo Lacustre de Atitlán.
For food lovers we start off with some adventure: Canal Clamming, then the sumptuous Taste of Artisan Food Products, and the search is on for ancient flavorings in Finding Virola guatemalensis.
Harvesting Magic in May reminds us that there is a difference between simply living and flourishing. Sensuous Guatemala treats us to the lovely Balsam Peru tree.
This month’s installment of Roads to Adventure is The Road to Nakum. If you are an armchair traveler Thor Janson’s narrative will take you into the jungle as though you were right there with him.
Elizabeth Bell gives us an update on La Antigua’s new mayor; Zen clears up “Relation Words” and Monish Welcome explains how to get to the beautiful Bay Island of Roatan.
The theme for this month’s Revue Photo Contest was Portraits, and there are several entries published in these pages.
We would like to dedicate this issue to a great mom who is no longer with us, Mama Lue.
Here’s wishing you a wonderful May.
