An Ongoing Worksite

This happy little website serves as a testing ground and play area for me. While the content is always 'real', the design and functionality vary from time to time as I often play with ideas here. I do so on a 'live' site so as to encourage myself to make the changes quickly.

Baltimore's Heritage Walk

While in town for WordCamp Baltimore, I quite literally stumbled upon the Baltimore Heritage Walk. Yes, I tripped over a crack in the sidewalk as I strolled from the hotel towards the WordPress conference. As I recovered my balance, I caught site of the Heritage Walk placard embedded in the sidewalk. I’m a history buff (I studied Modern European History in college) and I was immediately intrigued.

Glancing down the sidewalk, I noticed that there were Heritage Walk placards every few yards. I went to look at the next in the row. It was in a different language. And so was the next, and the next, and the next. In fact, there were Heritage Walk signs in 10 different languages.

With all the turmoil of the presidential elections, I found it comforting to see that the good people of Baltimore embraced diversity.

Can you please help me figure our the different languages used on the placards? I’d love for people to share their answers with me on Twitter – without using Google Translate.
