    ... me out. In England, in our medical training system, this is something you are sheltered from- it's very easy to attribute not knowing how to help someone as a lack of knowledge, not as a futility to treat the inevitability of the outcome. Obviously, knowledge helps as well. So a nice week to ponder this time I've spent in Timor Leste before a different take on medicine in a foreign country.

The exhibition was setup up to educate both a national and international audience as well as promote adoption of the report and the upholding of it's meaning and values into the future.

    ... West Timor to Dili is a long and reasonably bumpy one. It follows an almost singular route into the mountains through the middle of West Timor and passes by a number of towns like Soe that are well known for their 'Beehive' style homes. The homes are original to Timorese culture and made of straw with a one metre high door way - yes in didn't make a typo '1 metre'. The people are not very tall here. Strangely it's a bit of a ...

    ... to the Resistance Museum which was very interesting and had great displays about how the rebels hid in the hills and evaded the Indonesian forces. The video footage was harrowing to watch as it was very graphic and violent. We feel that this helped us to understand the struggle that the East Timorese faced.
