Happy Holidays (cover by Elvira Méndez)If you are not sure what to buy a loved one for Christmas, or any occasion for that matter, we have some suggestions. In the book category, turn to page 17 for Dianne Carofino’s preview of Guatemala: People and Tradition. Photographer Santiago Albert’s black and white work evokes the splendor of the human experience in a unique style that speaks as much about himself as it does of his subjects. For a fanciful gift, Anna-Claire Bevan covers the innovative work done by members of Creamos, a group of women whose lives have been transformed–from scavenging trash to creating one-of-a-kind jewelry. In the world of art, Jack and Joy Houston feature What Will I Do With the Gold? El Attico is the venue for an exhibition of Al Thompson’s unique gilded, sculptured prints, any of which might be the perfect gift for someone you love.

For travel inspiration, Anna-Claire Bevan reports on swinging from the trees in Jalapa, writer Carla Berryhill warns that Santa Cruz La Laguna may be habit forming; and Blake Nelson takes us Volcano Climbing.

On the education front, read all about IGA’s Commitment to Culture; Elizabeth Bell explains What is Happening with the Palace of the Captains General; Linda Green covers where Sleeping Dogs should lie, and Ken Veronda paints a picture in words about the splendor of Spices in Sensuous Guatemala.
