Jul 23, 2016 - Week 2 in Dili

Week 2 in Dili 18 – 23 July, 2016 The Madres is an interesting place. I feel as if I am in youth hostel. I am the cranky old lady in the room near the kitchen. There is a group of Japanese health workers here. They are very polite but they do not realise how much noise they make. I heard a chopping noise during the night, got up and there was one of them preparing food for their breakfast. It was 2.13am! Meals can be bought at restaurants for $4, so not sure that home cooking is cheaper. Vegemite and biscuits are pretty cheap! We have been...

Dec 26, 2008 - East Timor- Dili Christmas

On Dec 22nd we flew over to East Timor with some of Adam’s co-workers on a tiny plane used for employees or military only. We arrived at his hotel(more like a compound) at noon. He had to start work asap, so he took me to the place where he works. It is in the same base as the Australian Army. Lots of military stuff everywhere. On the 23rd, I went for a ride in a helicopter to deliver beer to the other soldiers, in another part of East Timor, as a Christmas gift. We flew about 20min to the other side of the Island and dropped it off, along...
