Revue Magazine July 2019
This edition marks the 1-year anniversary of the Revue e-zine (electronic magazine). Though we still receive comments from readers about missing the monthly print editions, most everyone agrees that decreasing circulation to cut costs for advertisers would definitely not have been a good thing — for them and for us.
Was it an easy transition? It was a lot of work. Was it worth it? Definitely.
A huge thank you to Revue e-zine advertisers for all the support and confidence. The Advertiser Index makes it easy to find great restaurants, hotel accommodations, services and more. The interactive features are something that would have been impossible in print.
And above all else, thank you for reading the Revue!
This month’s photo contest theme Mercados of Guatemala brought in a treasure trove of wonderful images, which are included in this edition. We’re so grateful to have the opportunity to highlight all the talented photographers.
Simplicity and Freshness by Chef extraordinaire Amalia Moreno-Damgaard compliments the July photo contest by proclaiming “Vegetables and fruits are the stars of the Guatemalan side dish, as they are accessible, affordable and of high quality.”
The Artist Highlight this month features work by Gio López, “I believe in direct visual communication with the viewer, I like color, I like children’s lines and I like what is easy to understand.”
Hadazul Cruz provides background on La Antigua Guatemala’s Patron Saint James — a celebration in his honor is held on July 25. As well, La Antigua comes to life all month with lively festivals. Many cultural and sports groups have special activities, plus, Señorita Antigua and Señorita de las Perpetuas Rosas will be elected!

Luis Argueta: Guatemalan Filmmaker Recipient of a Global Citizen Award by Mark Walker tells us the behind the scenes story why The National Peace Corps Association bestowed its highest honor, the Harris Wofford Global Citizen award, at the Peace Corps Connect Conference at the University of Texas in Austin to Luis Argueta, the first Latin American filmmaker, and Guatemalan, to be so recognized.
