Revue Magazine March 2019
We celebrate our 27th Anniversary of publishing Revue with a Special Issue of spectacular photographs. If you live in Guatemala or are visiting, it’s probably a safe bet that you have taken a photo of at least one of the volcanoes that dominate the skylines of this beautiful country.
Every month we have a Photo Contest and this month the theme was Volcanoes of Guatemala. We received so many wonderful submissions that it was obvious we should highlight them in the magazine. What wasn’t obvious was how to choose the winning photos by editorial decision. There were a number that were extraordinary and the decision-making process was painstaking. Especially since the value of our prizes has increased.
The good folks at Antigua Hotel Solutions are sponsoring a free night for two at a rotating choice of one of their many fabulous hotels. The winning photographer by judges’ decision this month won a free night at the lovely Hotel Casa del Parque. The winning photographer by popular vote won Q400. There are also cash prizes for 2nd and 3rd in both categories.
We are proud to announce an upcoming book signing of an important new book written by our friend and prize-winning author Mary Jo McConahay. The Tango War, The Struggle for the Hearts, Minds and Riches of Latin America During World War II, is a fascinating, largely unknown story of how the global conflict affected countries from Mexico to Argentina, including Guatemala, and how the Axis and the Allies never took their eyes from each other, like dancers in a tango. We have included an excerpt.
This month our favorite celebrity chef, Amalia Moreno-Damgaard talks about the importance of Paying It Forward in life. She also shares her recipe for Dobladas de Frijoles y Queso. Tasty.
Sue Patterson shares an unfortunate incident she had in The Robbery. There’s good news and bad news in this tale.
There are a lot of cultural events in March, for example, the one on the opposite page. You can plan your outings by going to our DateBook and seeing what suits your fancy.
As always, we are truly grateful to all of you who read Revue, and we appreciate our advertisers’ confidence in us throughout these 27 years.
