someone made an actual nice-looking, good-sounding, not-outdated documentary about esperanto?!

but i’m so broke, i don’t even have $4.99 to buy it

in the trailer there was a swedish guy from the town my wife’s sister lives in (Skövde), i visited there about a month ago for the first time

that lady said, “i want to travel but not as a tourist”. i like that idea, that’s also how i always thought of travelling. i don’t care about tourist places or things, i want to see how a normal person lives, i would rather hang around the grocery store and my one big dream as a kid was to be in a homestay in japan. that kind of thing…
