Revue Magazine March 2021
Last year Semana Santa (Holy Week) was cancelled at the last minute because of the COVID-19 virus. This year, the preparations for celebrating this extremely non-social-distancing tradition have changed dramatically. Concerts, small indoor processions, Holy Vigils, Masses, prayers and recitals can still be “shared” this year through formats such as Facebook Live events, radio programs and other online sources. Hadazul Cruz has compiled a comprehensive 2021 Guide to Semana Santa Online. All of the viewing information is just a click away, starting on March 7, the third Sunday of Lent, through to Holy Friday on April 2.
Our photo contest for this month was Volcanoes of Guatemala and we share the stunning images sent in by professsional and amatuer photographers.
When Words are not Enough, a group show of contemporary artists from Guatemala and the United States, is on display in La Antigua through April 4. You can read about the artists and their works on page 66.
Chef and author Amalia Moreno-Damgaard delivers A Tribute to Caldo de Res. Caldo de res is possibly the most popular soup in the region surrounding Guatemala City. Chef Amalia also includes her own recipe for this aromatic beef and vegetable creation.
This edition marks the 29th Year Anniversary of Revue. Happy March to all!
