Rain, rain and more rain

It has been raining pretty much non-stop for over 8 hours here in Dili and I can’t recall a long session like this for a long time.  The house is about to float away.  The street is a lake.  The roof is leaking badly in some places and if it keeps going, I think it will break through the ceiling in a couple of spots.

I think this will cause quite a few problems around town.  This is the sort of stuff that causes road slips.  I imagine Comorro river is doing some very strange things and this may sort out just where it decides to break out to the sea.  We’ll see as the day pans out.

One thought on “Rain, rain and more rain

  1. Hello!

    Hope you are well. I just came across your blog on Timor-Leste. Great stuff! I am writing to you because my partner and I are launching a website that will be populated with cross-cultural information about every country in the world. We will be looking to the web community to help do this with all the information being available for free. I was wondering if you may be able to help us out with the Timor-Leste pages. We would love your input. Let me know if you would be open to this and I’ll send along a brief questionnaire. Please also feel free to check out the website, become a member (it’s free!) and add to the guide. I’ve also included a press release below.


    Thank you for your time!
