Farmers selling their fresh produce, warmed by the late afternoon light, along the road out of Dili, the capital, towards the district of Liquiçá (Tetun: Likisá).

Liquiçá, Timor-Leste — Being in a young country like Timor-Leste feels so new it’s like being in a big field of grass and watching, watching. For what, nobody can quite say.

In conversation with the young Timorese, I tell them that their country has much potential to become a magnet for jaded travellers, for people in search of an unspoilt, undiscovered land. But they cannot imagine what they have not seen.

The adventure continues.
