Good websites to see other pidgin/creole languages

Radio Australia's Tok Pisin (New Guinea Pidgin English) service has a fine
website including the daily news posted in that language.  Fascinating;
you may be surprised how unlike English this Pidgin English is!  It may
be fairly difficult for you to understand.  I seem to
be finding a fair amount of interpolated standard Australian English
material in the texts, for technical terms e.g. "foran minista" = "Foreign
Minister".  You could get some fine ideas for language planning here...

Run a websearch for "Bislama" too, and enjoy the results...
