Koningin Emmabrug - Willemstad

Keep an eye on this wiki. It was created just a few days ago by Franz Sledge on Auxlang and he's been putting up quite a bit of information on it, so in a short time it could become one of the best resources online to learn the language.

You can edit it by sending an email to him and asking to be added to the list of editors, or if you want to add something but don't feel like going through that, just leave a message below this post and I'll add it for you.

Also, here's another good newspaper in Papiamentu.
