Whatever normal is – I think that is what we are going back to. Things re calming down a lot. We still take care and I’m reluctant to be travelling on the main road into Dili but things are certainly looking a lot better. Thank God and a big thanks to all the security forces both local and international. It has been encouraging to have a small disturbance come under control. I think it gives hope to the nation that when things go wrong they don’t necessarily have to go really nasty.
We’ll have a lot of visitors over the next few weeks. Nick is looking into starting a helicopter service with MAF and the Ministry of Health. A linguistics lady is coming to see how she can learn Tetun and help here. Cynthia’s rellies are coming which will be a big encouragement to us all. And my good buddy, Rohan, is coming to help the Japanese start a biogas project.
