I’m reading a book called Wanderlust: A love affair with five continents, in which the protagonist describes living behind gated communities during her life as an overseas diplomat. I am starting to witness a similar thing here with the Malai (white people) I am hanging out with (who live and work in Dili). Today I passed through the gates of a compound (some kind of foreign government place) where I participated in a sickeningly difficult circuit training session. We played a lazy game of basketball afterwards before jumping in the pool. Tonight we had dinner at a Portuguese steakhouse next to Lita.
