    • Day 217

      UNPAZ university Dili

      October 26, 2022 in East Timor ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

      One day later a post again?
      For that special day I need a own post!

      Today was the first day of Uni in my life, I mean I never went in Germany, so first day as a „student“ check!
      I was more like a special guest there, I talked to a lot of students about different things like traveling, Europe, environment, money, the life in Timor-Leste and more.
      Everybody was really friendly and it looked like they been also happy that I visited them. Tourism is here not really a thing and a tourist that visit them is even more rare.
      First I had a tour in the area and they show me everything, then we went to the forest and planted some trees (picture 3).
      Doing something good for the nature is always nice.
      After we finished the work I chilled with 3 of them in a Café and we talked a bit more.
      They told me that a lot of people want to work in Europe or Australia because the money here is so bad. When you think about in Germany are people they get a apartment and money from the government for doing nothing and the people here work hard (not everybody is working hard but you know what I mean) and get maybe the half of that.

      It’s not a fair world and I knew that before, but it’s different when you see it and feel it.
      We can be happy that we are born in better circumstances. The time here is a really good reminder for me to think about something like that more often.

      The day was really interesting for me and I hope for them too. It was a big pleasure to go to university for one day. I wish all of them just the best in life.
      I will never forget that and I am thankful!

      Our old house in Bairro Pite

      August 19, 2019 in East Timor ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      Visited our old house in Biarro Pite. Still looked much the same. Biarro Pite has become the China town of Dili, with lots of development by the Chinese community. There were many more factories, warehouses, and businesses particularly on Banana road.Read more
