I agree.  Really cool site.  Can't wait to see more.  Here are a few thoughts/questions I had in going through it: 

How do you get back to the home page when you are looking at a country page?  Is there a "Home" button that I missed?  If not, I think you should put a "Home" type button on every page.  Maybe up on the top right near the blog  and other buttons.

The map -- I like the idea of finding festivals by scrolling over the map but find it difficult to use for a few reasons:
*   The color-coding is not obvious until you click on a few countries and figure out that white means no festival information currently available.  (I, of course, clicked on a couple of white countries before a green one, so I was slow to figure out what was going on).  What about a simple code box: Green = festival information available.  White = festival information not currently available.
*   Once you zoom in on a country (by clicking it), how do you zoom back out so you can go and check out another country's festivals?
*   I couldn't figure out how to zoom into small countries until a techie friend of mine showed me how to draw a box with my mouse.  This was NOT intuitive to me.  If that's the way it is, I think it should be explained.  A lot of us who are interested in festivals are not that tech-savvy and could use a hint.
Keep up the good work!

Celeste, the KadmusArts logo (the three figures) will take you back to the home page from any other page on the site. For the map, there are two ways to zoom out:
- clicking on any body of water will zoom out;
- holding down the "control" key on the keyboard while clicking displays a menu that allows you to zoom out.

Many thanks for the comments - one of our goals in the beta testing stage is to find out which aspects of the interface are working for site visitors, and which ones need adjustments or additional information cues.
