Chris wrote of his experiences in the countryside:

“At Aileu we visited the local school which has facilities to enable children with disabilities to learn there. The staff were incredibly enthusiastic to show us the school, and as with most things in Timor-Leste there is so much more that can be done.

On the trip home we used the new road down the Comoro River valley. We did not know it was still under construction all the way! However, we got to see a really nice waterfall and some really hard working men building kilometres of stone-pitched retaining walls, all by hand.”
