During October 2018, Jan went on her 9th visit to Timor Lestè, and this time she was accompanied by her friend Brigitte, from Switzerland. It is always challenging getting there, however exciting when arriving.

Whilst in Dili they stayed at the Beachside Hotel, which is always a lovely place to stay.

They had a lovely breakfast overlooking the ocean, where they were both surprised to see pigs foraging freely along the beach.

The tree on the beach outside the Beachside Hotel was a scenic place for the pigs to forage.


Breakfast was relaxing, however they had much business to attend to in Dili, before heading into the mountains. In particular, their plans to visit the Dili Rehabilitation Centre.
