We spent our last days in Darwin with my cousin Tony and his wife Deb, from Perth, drinking beer, being tourists and fishing.
Lucinda went off to the shipping agent and was packed into a container. The ship to Dili (Timor’s capital) is on a sketchy schedule but is due on April 9. I caught the daily flight from Darwin.
After a short wait in a line-up we had a 30 day visa ($30) instantly. No questions, just a huge full-passport-page stamp.
The temperature isn’t too bad, about 85F/35C, but the humidility is 85% and it’s uncomfortable. Way worse than 105F/40C and zero humidity. This sounds unlikely, but just is.
