Celebrating Wikimania 2018 online

Romaine Wiki-2
The official part of Wikimania is over, this does not prevent ourselves from celebrating Africa's first Wikimania online, in more particular: writing Wikipedia articles.

Africa is under represented in Wikipedia, by writing about it we both celebrate our great conference as well as we work on solving the Africagap

With some Dutchies we started the idea of having a list of like 10-20 articles of subjects from Cape Town and surrounding area. For example:


Well-known park in Cape Town:

The often referred to Dassie:

Input needed!

In Cape Town I bought a Northern Sotho–English dictionary,[1] and used it to improve the article about the Northern Sotho language a bit. I'm very far from being an expert however, so if you know anybody who knows this language well, please point them to the many questions on the talk page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Northern_Sotho_language .

[1] I really, really love dictionaries.

Great idea Romaine!

I am now working on Esperanto Wikivoyage (in Incubator), mostly to make it fully working. Now I am finishing Europe and immediately after that I will focus on Africa (not only for the Africagap and to help our colleagues but also to support tourism and facilitate meetings in Africa).

See you online!

about one of the species of fish we saw at the opening party in the
Two Oceans Aquarium.
