Speaking of which... I was hanging out and wandering around Tel Aviv & Yafo yesterday, and after i left Dizengof Square (_lehizdangeif_ = 'to hang out in Dizengof Square') i found myself on Zamenhof street! So i looked at the street sign, and like many of the street signs in Israel it has a little blurb about who it was that the street is named after - and the one on Zamenhof street was written in Hebrew and (not Arabic, not English, but....) Esperanto! -Stephen (Steg) "_lehizdangeif_, verb. 'to hang out at Dizengof Square, Tel Aviv'." (eeeep i can't believe i called it a 'noun' yesterday :O)
