DILI, DILI DISTRICT, TIMOR-LESTE

 


TIMOR-LESTE REPTILE & AMPHIBIAN SURVEY
PHASE VII: BACK TO THE METROPOLIS

After a breakfast of coffee and buns in the yard of Hotel Risky we headed back to Dili, another 140 km drive but on largely much better roads than the Fatucahi to Maliana drive.

Breakfast at Risky's!

Enroute we could see the border crossing point we have used previously to travel through Indonesian West Timor to the Timorese Oecusse exclave, and also the Indonesian island of Alor, behind the Timorese island of Ataúro where we have also conducted fieldwork.
