What’s the Difference?

February 11, 2016

A while ago I was puzzling out what to call ‘model railroading’ in Esperanto.  The suggestions I got were in the tone that since the trains involved are small, they must be toys. Being a model railroader, I can attest that though model trains are small, they are not something one truly ‘plays’ with, nor do you want to hand over a $200+ locomotive to a small child.  Below I have put 3 photos to explain the difference.

Esperanto Word Search Book

February 9, 2016

vortserchoj-1For Those who enjoy word search puzzles and either speak or just like Esperanto, I’ve put out the first of several planned books of word search puzzles in Esperanto. There are 50 puzzles in the book with words ranging from simple to challenging compound words. It’s available direct from Lulu.com here [link], but should soon be available on Amazon as well.

Word search puzzles are a great low tech way to pass time while on a flight, or anytime you have to wait around alone.

I have two more books in the works, so keep an eye out for more!
