Ah I’m so happy with life. A little drunkenness brings out the sentimentality in me, but I am just so happy to have a comfortable home (thanks Ben!) and lovely ‘family’ to return to. It was a massive ride from Maubisse to Dili. On the way back I stopped in at Feni’s house. She wasn’t home but I was welcomed in for a coffee anyway. On arrival at home, I joined my Dili friends for dinner before going out for drinks. The city is a world away from the villages I have ridden through, but it’s still a great place to be. First we went to a little microbrewery in Timor Plaza, then to the biker bar. A lot of fun banter ensued. My challenge starting tomorrow is to fix my bike.
