Right. Well. Same (pronounced ‘Sahmeh’) was amazing, Ainaro cute and beachy. We spent the best part of our trip in Same, which is a little spread-out town set amongst breathtaking mountain scenery in the Manufahi district of Timor. Beautiful little Timorese tiled houses on the south road in; a poncing Indonesian soldier statue welcoming you in on the other side; sad, burnt out scout hall and impressive-but-burnt-out market in the middle. It’s the kind of thing that sounds clichéd when I write about it and would be much better described with the pictures I took*. When I’m home, my pretties. Here’s a series of entries about thoughts and happenings that occurred over the trip.
- More and more, I wish I were a crack photographer. I am going to have to take a course when I’m back in Australia.
