One thought on “How do you see Dili?

  1. The Adelaide reporter's approach seemed to be to drive around town and then parse first impressions so they can be filed under existing prejudices: failed state, greedy NGO workers, lazy locals. It would have helped if this person had actually talked to some people.
    I have only been here a year and yet already notice the difference. How about the new park in front of Hotel Timor? How about the clearance of the IDP camps? And as for 'foreign-owned buildings', apart from embassies (and yes, the new Chinese Embassy is an eyesore), and the complex ethnicity of the ownership of the new buildings (Chinese-Timorese, Macau-Timorese, Portuguese-Timorese, Indonesian-Timorese), the law states that foreigners cannot own land, so to portray Dili's development as a foreign land-grab is probably unfair.
