Top and bottom 10, month #6

My ten favourite things about living in Dili, at the end of my sixth month here:

  1. Leaning in to things being difficult
  2. Friends in a circle and birthday curry dinner
  3. Condom crafts
  4. My first Timorese party
  5. New toasties and old faces as beachside brunch
  6. Stories that take a bottle and a half of red wine at the Italian place in Farol
  7. Phonebanking for marriage equality and our first solo Timor Comms presentation
  8. Missing Dili before I’ve even left
  9. A trip to Jaco Island
  10. People who feel like home
