I have a preference for classic Chinese characters, BTW. ;)

Re: o kama sona e toki pona!

toki! The text is wrong. Pije's has recently updated "poka" to "lon poka". Can you give a link to the sentence in question, please? lecture 10, Practice, "Whom did you go with?" Thanks. I notified Pije. It should be "sina tawa lon poka pi jan seme?" "sin...
