COM to DILI, DILI DISTRICT, TIMOR-LESTE

 


TIMOR-LESTE REPTILE & AMPHIBIAN SURVEY
PHASE V: HEADING FOR THE METROPOLIS
(part 1)

We were packed to leave fairly early on the 30th but it was some time before we took our leave of Yono and his staff at the Com Beach Resort and people had posed for a surfeit of photographs.

The Jets and Naveen load a Troopie. Mark and Hinrich pose with Yono,
manager of the Com Beach Resort.
Naveen hanging with his homies,
the Jets.
Hinrich with three gunslingers,
the Jets who are about to graduate from UNTL.

Eventually we hit the road for the six hour drive back to Dili, stopping for occasional photographic opportunities, calls of nature and, of course, reptiles in the road!

On the road, a break in the journey through arid northern habitats.
