If you know the answer please don’t ruin the fun for everyone else! You are welcome to voice your frustration in the comments though! This puzzle took me roughly an hour to solve. Good luck.

  • lexi

    can you post the answer here? i’m really curious what the rest is, i’m was so close but i didn’t figure it out still.

  • This is awesome, I love stuff like this! After work I’ma have to take a crack at this!

  • Neat puzzle, figured it out in about 15 minutes except for the solution! I was using the decoded words instead of the actual words (I don’t think that will give anything away). Thanks for the brain challenge on this rainy day.

  • a.e.

    That seem to me to be rediculously dificult.
    Good thing I cheated. :)

  • Stan

    Nice, saw this puzzle before going out this morning, had a go when I got back. Had the same problem as Karen but figured it out eventually :)

  • I did it without cheating!
    Shame I have no proof.

  • steve

    i started translating into ms word so i could color code my translations, based on which colors i thought i figured out the rules for. i dont think karens and stans comments ruined anything but do make me think im just going off in the wrong direction now, lol.

    • Stan

      Steve: just carry on translating until you get all the words and it’ll make sense!

      • steve

        ah yep, it did :) just had me overthinking it for a moment was all.

  • MR.

    i feel so retarded. i looked at it for 5 minutes and still cant get anywhere with it.

  • a little hint to get your started:

    whirred = word

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
