We’ve been wanting for awhile to do a post about our home here in Dili! But we haven’t got around to it until today! We had plans to make it a “Where’s Wally?” type post with Sam hiding in each picture, but that idea lasted about two photos until Mr 5 decided it wasn’t fun anymore!
So here’s our new home…. The view from the front gate…
Squeaky the cat and current vice landlord.
The mini market at the end of the drive way, where we can buy fresh produce every now and then.
The living area! Yes we are into the Christmas spirit already, the stockings came with us from Arnhem Land.
The dining room – Where’s Sam?
The front porch, with outdoor setting where i can do emails while Sam plays. And the MAF ute!
Sam hard at work at his desk in his room. He loves the desk and all the places to hide treasures. Some of his crafty work and school work on the walls, including a poster learning days of the week in two languages.
The laundry. We found the fridge was forever being opened to get water bottles out and half the space was being used up by water containers so we bought one of these water coolers. Such a great idea and Sam loves getting his own drinks.
The kitchen… oops sorry about the dirty dishes! Should have done them before taking a photo.
The bathroom, which is a big shower room. Have to remember to put the toilet lid down before showering, otherwise wet bottoms occur later on.
Our front door! A red door, perfect for a Christmas wreath.
The front yard with the swing.
The neighbour’s house where Sam spends a lot of time with the kids. They are our landlords and run a small shop out of the side of their house.
In comparison to our house, here’s how others in Timor-Leste live…
