East Timor - Day 2

After a great sleep in our new digs, devotions and brekky, it was off to meet everyone and hear about the wonderful project from director, Simone, and the staff.  We felt so welcome!  Following this was a visit to Doce Vida, Arte Vida, preschool, crèche and one of the girls' houses. It was a packed morning and we were all pleased to arrive and cool off at Kafe Aroma for lunch. We just had to sample the famous chocolate cake which is the favourite of the ex president of East Timor!

The afternoon was spent organising our itinerary for the rest of our time here and A visit to the museum to learn about the history of East Timor before heading back to the hotel to freshen up for dinner which was at the House of Love, a home for the older girls. They cooked us an amazing meal and we ate, sang and shared stories. The girls were thrilled with the beauty pack gifts we put together and lots of nail painting ensued.  It was hard to get anyone to leave and there were not many dry eyes at our debrief later on.
