I leave Dili for Darwin in a few hours.
While I haven’t spent much time here in East Timor, the experience has been very eye opening. I spent yesterday walking the streets of Dili taking video. I happened upon a demonstration by a local martial arts club (aka gang). Once I get settled in Australia, you will be assaulted with all the photos and lengthy posts I’ve promised to write over the last month.
My flight from Darwin to Melbourne is at Midnight, so I’ll basically have to kill 12 hours in Darwin. I really hope there are lockers where I can store my bag at the airport.
I’ve been really looking forward to Australia. Perhaps almost too much. I’ve been getting lots of advice from Aussies about what to see and do in the country.
I am guessing I’ll be logging on in Darwin at a Starbucks or something. The internet here is VERY slow. I think the whole country is on dial-up. This is probably on a par with the quality of the internet I found in the Marshall Islands and Micronesia.
