Monday 27th April – 5 months, 11 days
Half of Dili is heading to Jacou on the other side of the island this weekend. Apparently they get a May Day public holiday here, so this weekend is a long weekend. I tell you, this place has way more public holidays, including the ACT, where we get Canberra Day in March *and* ‘Family and Community Day’ (a.k.a. Melbourne Cup Day) off work.
Downside is that the long weekends always catch me by surprise, so I never manage to make plans in time to go away. Although, I did kind of give up on making plans for weekends because I always seem to get sick on the weekends, so maybe it’s a moot point.
