We’re a Kiwi couple in our 50s who arrived in Dili in April 2013 on a two-year VSA posting. Pat’s working as communications and advocacy advisor for World Vision. Pip’s teaching English and creative writing. Both of us are blogging about life in the newest country in South East Asia.
Timor Leste is an exciting challenge for us after 30 years of living not only in the same city, (Wellington), but in the same house. While we’re away, we’ve put our communications business, 2Write, on hold.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to help out in the newest country in South East Asia and want to share some of what we learn and see through this blog. We hope you enjoy it.
Pat Martin and Pip Desmond
