TIMOR-LESTE (Manatuto to Dili Distr.)

 


TIMOR-LESTE REPTILE & AMPHIBIAN SURVEY
BACK TO THE METROPOLIS

We decided to drive back to Dili today with two final herping localities in mind within reach of the capital. The whole journey from Natarbora, over the mountains to Manatuto and then along the coast to Dili, was only 150 km but it took a few hours due to the poor quality of the rocky, muddy roads. We arrived back at TLH bumped, bounced and in dire need of showers.

Workmen climbing poles raise the electric cable to allow us to pass underneath,
Health and Safety what?
Up in the clouds at the crossroads, the two troopies at the halfway stage
Where we have been, Soibada and Natarbora
My troopie back at TLH, we both needed a shower

But joy of joys, the internet here finally works!
