It appears this is the weekend for nativity scene building to start. It is on in earnest. But just try approaching the airport roundabout at night at the moment. It is one huge Christmas tree light show and Comorro Road even has Christmas tree lights down the middle.
I just don’t recall this level of Christmas activity in my time here. Similarly, Colmera shopping centre was buzzing on Saturday morning to a level I do not recall. Admittedly mostly clothing vendors selling from the footpath but activity of a high level with lots of buyers.
The waters off Dili remain filled with commercial vessels. Mostly vessels with rice which I am told will take several more weeks to process through the port.
