Anarchonauts §αI¶I. Mkotanuyu Dwaniyo Naraogaatuyu (Mkotayu Naraombuyu Triniyo)... [To be finished]

Translation: Richardson II Harcroft (Richard Harker III) strolled down the cobblestone path toward the post. The post was a small, circular building, stonewall up to about waist-height and from there up half-timbered with cob infill. Smoke rose from the cupola of the shingled, conical roof. Facing the nexus of two intersecting streets were the large double doors marking the entrance, set in an arched doorway flanked on either side by a circular leaded window of multi-colored glass.

Anarchonauts §αI¶II. Mkotanuyu... [To be finished]

Translation: Richardson entered the post through the right door and walked past the arcaded promenade up to the counter surrounding the hearth area. On the far side of the hearth area stood a man on the near side of the circular counter’s opposite end, apparently sorting mail.
