Another Wenglish entry as dwi'n dysgu Cymraeg [I'm learning Welsh]

Mi es i ar y maes yn yr Wyddgrug bore 'ma i wylio'r pafiliwn pinc yn cael ei godi ar gyfer yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol mis nesa. [I went to the maes this morning to watch the pink pavilion going up in preparation for the Nationl Eisteddfod next month.]

Roeddwn wedi ymarfer fy Nghymraeg gorau. [I had practised my best Welsh.]

Ron i'n siwr mi faswn i angen siarad yng Nghymraeg. [I was sure I would need to speak Welsh.]

However the only language I heard, apart from English, was Dutch due to the gang of construction workers on site whose job it is to get the pink pavilion off the ground.

Beth yw'r Iseldireg ar gyfer Croeso i Gymru? [What's Dutch for welcome to Wales?]

PS. We're adding photos via camera phone straight from the Maes and on to our pages at
