Life in Timor

reasons to celebrate

I have just returned from more or less another week in the districts. Again these are the times which I really enjoy here in Timor. But there are more reasons to be celebrating at the moment... I have a baby brother..
Yep.. .
Charles John Schell…
How good is that…
Great news to get. I havent yet seen any photos, but as soon as I do im sure they will make their way on the site here. So have a little toast to Charles (Charlie, Chuck or Chukles.. maybe not) when you get the chance.
The week away involved a few trips to communities to once again observe Oxfam’s nutrition activities, except this time I forgot my camera- which was abit of a shame. The countryside in the district of Suai is gorgeous, so I took the opportunity of grabbing the motorbike and having a look around myself. So of course now I have dreams of biking around timor and visiting some of the less travelled roads- occasionally roughing it, but more than worth it.- Anyone keen?
Tomorrow we will also meet the new group of Youth Ambassadors, which means around 10 new faces, of course something we are excited about.
Anyway, just a quick update…

  • Hey Schelly,
    Sounds like you're having a great time over there.
    Congrats on the new baby bro. Your old man must be over the moon!
    That riding through Timor sounds like a blast. I'd be sooooooo keen! I love that sort of stuff. But doing it in another country would be unreal.

    Just thought i'd say G'day. Those photos up on the site a awesome. Looks like you have a great group of ppl to work with.

    Take care and i'll talk to you later.

    Frayz.
