    Cristo Rei of Dili

    January 20, 2020 in East Timor ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    It was a casual day, but we got it into gear by lunch time. We walked up the street to rent some scooters, but none available, and we rented a busted up old clunker to doodle around town in. First, we managed to get some lunch on our way to our first site . . . the Cristo Rei of Dili. We climbed up the 800 stairs to the top, and managed to sweat out every drop of the water we drank that morning. We had considered driving out to Black Rock, but it was showing as an hour drive on Google Maps. We then went back to the Timor Plaza to get some more cash, and were considering a movie. As I walked in to the Movie house, out comes Corey (NUTS IN), and he convinces me that Black Rock in only 25 minutes away. OK, that's good enough for me. So we reload into the car, and off we go . . . an hour later, I kid you not, we got to the area that was Black Rock, but the roads were so bad, that we did not think our poor little rent a wreck could handle it, so we drove back to Dili.Read more

    No One Expects the Spanish Inquisition

    January 19, 2020 in East Timor ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Life is pretty awesome, especially when the unexpected happens. First unexpected thing was an invite to dinner tonight by NUTS ON and his wife. So, we roll up to this cool place across the street from the beach, and sit down for a couple beers. THEN, we get an invitation for a ride in the only stretch limo in East Timor. Not saying no to that, so off we go. Turns out, this was David Bowie's limo, shipped here from the US. Does a lot of wedding support, parties, etc, and it just so happens the owner is a hasher. We rode around Dili for about an hour, all sorts of picture takers on the street, we are jammin on the inside, listening to mostly 70s and 80s rock, but a few newer cuts like Ed Sheeran. Sometimes you just never know what will happen. We then went back for a delicious dinner, and songs around the table. Great times in East TImor. Don't miss out, book your tickets today. ON ON.Read more
