I attended the Esperanto Usona Landa Kongreso -- United-States-ian National Congress -- in nearby Bethesda, Maryland, and I think I'm hooked. Proof: I'm in a blue shirt, a third of the way from the top. The next LK -- pronounced "loko" -- is in Berkeley, Kalifornio and I plan on being there.
More about my experience there later. I plan on blogging on my learning plan and in time adding posts in la lingvo internacia. More importantly, why I should do such a thing, and why you might.
With this post, I'm opening an Esperanto category.
