Yesterday my wife's car was in an accident. Another car hit with her car. No one was hurt. Her car landed on a stone wall. My wife drives well. The other person drives badly. The tow truck arrived. It removed her car. Two doors of her car was damaged. The repair man is able to fix the car.

The other person drives badly.

why "lawa pona ike"?
just "jan ante li lawa ike e tomo tawa"

jan-ante: Good catch. The 'pona' does not belong in that sentence. I found 4 other errors before I posted but I missed that one.

And jan Sonja, thank you for the Advanced numbers, mute = 20 and ale/ali = 100.

I think this is an elegant and simple solution for representing higher numbers. Now I can tell people how old I am using 5 words instead of 11 words !
