FOSSIL hunting has become part of my Timor focus and I have found several locations for ammonites,experienced different types of fossicking fun...and heard a story about bombs that fell in the war not going off when they fell within 2kms of AMMONITES or MUMMIES....so I set off in search of Mummies too. I found neither bombs nor mummies but it did provide a whole heap of entertainment. I am making my way through the fossils, slowly, please contact me if you have any queries.

Timor is a land of contrast which could not be shown more than by these OJEK riders who were having a free dress day. These tireless fellows ferry villagers and goods to and from their kampungs to the Trans the Timor Highway that runs like a twisted spine along the center of the island. The roads they traverse are like the ribs off the spine that carry hum of daily life in Timor are often treacherous and usually eroded and heavily potholed roads (lets not talk about wet season travel there).
My Canadian compatriot Aja and I left the animist village of Boti late in the afternoon having gone in to pay our respects to the family after the death of the King Ama Usif Benu. We walked out along the river bed, as the sun was setting with miles to go, in the company of 2 Botinese traders. Simon ran off up a side track to get his son and a friend who would get us out of there and back main road to catch a night bus, ...that is when I found out just how amazing the OJEK riders (motorcycle taxis) are....forging along river beds, up hillsides rife with landslides, adhering to 10cm wide goat tracks all on scooters of 100cc or less...these guys are a doco waiting to be made!.
