IT Joy Timor Leste, Day 10 of 11. 27/09/10.

10th Day

left the main group with Vicky to visit the Mother Theresa's nuns in Aileu.

altitude went up to 1300m, 864hPa. at least, that's what the altimeter/barometer in the landrover showed.

it was a.. very nostalgic trip.

puked for the first time in 3years.

could totally hear Jane going "see larh! eat chocolate icecream for breakfast. killing yourself!"

there was a Singaporean nun there, who is Vicky's godmother. Vicky was telling us that she met Mother Theresa 4 times in Singapore, and juz before she died, and that she had been working with Mother Theresa since she was a youth.

quite impressive, if i should say so.

got an offer to join them as a nun. hah.

brought back a box of intricately created paper cards to sell.

they were made by jobless mothers taught by a Polish sister there.

IT Joy Timor Leste shall set up a booth to sell each card at 4bucks each soon.

all proceeds shall be flown to set up the orphanage there.

donated the rest of our instant mee, snacks, sweets, and Jane and my towels. plus about 200+ USD in cash.

went back to the first convent for a gala/farewall dinner.

had another mass dance for 8.15pm to 10.40+pm, according to Sister Aurora.

had a final debrief in our room before ending to pack/play the rest of the last night away. addressed a lot of issue, assigned final work for the after-trip wrap up.

fell asleep while packing.

Fieary. 27/09/10.

when will my dreams be fulfilled??
