Learn Ewe Language in Lome Togo
Well, i just dropped by to let you know of a competition that is running at the africanloft.
Ps: 600 words is just a page..
Re: Lack of street names and getting around (slightly off topic).
The Google maps satellite imagery for Lome provides a zoom level that's only one away from the most detail possible. With that and a few GPS coordinates of all the landmarks, someone could make a "My Maps" with Placemarks, print it, and find their way to places like the language school and elsewhere without street names or written descriptions.
A compass might help too.
Taken a step further, you could have custom maps on mobile phones...

Put custom maps right on hobotraveler.com...
Google Maps on Your Web Site
I think you can even embed photos in the map placemark bubbles. That would give folks an enhanced visual guide for the landmarks to look for.
I know in the past you've talked about doing a guidebook. If you did, I think something like this combined with your broad knowledge might be a dynamic way that you could have one up on even LP down-loadable chapters (PDF format).
I'm sure someone will say, use Google Earth!, whatever. Not everybody has a PC thats capable of running that resource hog. And if designing for a world audience, probably best to avoid it. I've no idea how to integrate that into a website anyhow.
Just a thought.
