Re: La Ziunga: a taste of a romlang

OK, so I've been working on a little translation (a few changes from the last version - notably merger of unstressed short /i/ and /a/). Aaandd.... well, maybe I've gone too far now?

Also, there was a very clear "pan-African" sort of look to Wakanda--lots of things from various different parts of Africa, all brought together to one place. Pan-africanism, hmmm, indeed.
