This is the view from the balcony of the flat I am sharing in Dili. Not too shabby right? The balcony points away from the main part of the city and the beach, towards the mountains that frame Dili.
The apartment has some problems, especially the water pump being turned off a lot, meaning you can strip to have a shower and then find there’s no water. That is a bit annoying! Also, out lounge room is connected to the lounge room of the flat downstairs by a locked staircase… so we can hear everything they say and smell everything they cook (and vice versa for them).
The staircase up to the apartment is also interesting… the steps are different sizes!
But I never really expected to find perfection here, and the balcony makes up for the quirks.
