The Real Latin America

I was on Latin Wikipedia tonight and found this fun map of South America, translated into Latin of course.  Highlights of the translation include: 

  • Rio de Janeiro to Flumen Ianuarium;
  • Buenos Aires to Bonaëropolis;
  • Brasilia to Brasilopolis;
  • Ecuador to Aequitoria; and
  • Easter Island to Insula St. Felicis.

There’s also this cool map of the Civitates Foederatae Americae (a.k.a. United States of America) including Novum Eboracum (New York), Ludoviciana (Louisiana), Terra Mariae (Maryland), and Mons Viridis (Vermont).

The picture heading this post is from a general map of America Septentrionalis.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
    go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

    First off I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was interested to know how you
    center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Cheers!

    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing
    a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects
    as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the
    way!
