As our cover photo suggests, this is the time of year when sea turtles are arriving on the shores of Guatemala’s Pacific coast to make a nest on dry land in which to deposit their eggs. Matt Bokor’s article on page 14 describes some of the wonder and the perils that exist for these gentle creatures at the Monterrico-Hawaii Natural Reserve.

Another animal gracing our pages is the noble peccary. We are excited to introduce this first of a new series for Revue by Dr. Nicholas Hellmuth, Sacred Animals & Exotic Tropical Plants.

For kids who like animals, the Minerva Zoo in Quetzaltenango hosts a Zoo Slumber Party that seems to be quite fun. Find out what it’s all about on page 21.

Do you believe in ghosts? Day of the Dead rounds out the month and we have several spirits to introduce you to; La Llorona, the Hungry Ghost and The Ghosts of San Juan Chamelco. Hope we don’t spook you.

October would not be complete without Giant Kites and we have photos and an article to prove it. We also have included a Profile and Book Alert, and a Community Enterprise worth checking out.

The Revue staff would like to congratulate two of our long-time advertisers on their 35th anniversary, a very impressive feat. To the Shakespeare Pub in Guatemala City and La Fonda de la Calle Real in Antigua, we salute you heartily, and please keep up the good work.

Thanks for reading Revue. We hope October finds you in good “spirits.”

—John & Terry Kovick Biskovich
