Concerts, art shows, fashion shows, conferences, lectures, slide shows, dance recitals, stage plays, circus acts, folk dancing, films, workshops, local bands, tours … if you can’t find something fun to do in July, it certainly isn’t our fault for not telling you about it. DateBook starts on page 24 waiting to be used.

There is plenty to read about on other Revue pages this month. We’ve got a few stories with an educational theme, starting with a new English-language teaching program at Guatemala’s Del Valle University Altiplano. Then there is the Colegio Hebrón, creating a “first” for Guatemala with its homeschooling curriculum. The group at Niños de Guatemala are providing education to kids in Ciudad Vieja, and the American Legion has created the Steve Skelton Memorial Library.

The research efforts of Joy Houston and the photography of Jack Houston allow us to learn about medical history in Part II of Healthcare in Colonial Guatemala.
Dwight Wayne Coop discusses a number of topics this month, including the weather and an art exhibit coming to Panajachel.

Oops, running out of space here, please check our table of contents for more great articles. We once again express our gratitude to all of our contributing writers.

July 25 is Día de Santiago, a celebration in honor of the patron saint of La Antigua Guatemala, with procesessions and cultural festivals throughout the month.

The lovely photo on our cover was taken on a medical mission in Alta Verapaz by Debbie Jefkin-Elnekave while she was volunteering for Partner in Surgery (page 128).

We wish you happy trails in July, hopefully we can be of some assistance. If you need back issues of Revue just browse through them at www.revuemag.com
