Ho ho ho

Alkatiri is back, sitting in parliament. His christmas present: the passage of the electoral law which will split the 2007 elections into two doses. First, the Presidential in April, and later, after Fretilin has had more time to circle the wagons, legislative elections in August. (Longer contracts for the UN electoral and civic education staff.)

Ramos-Horta sends Osama Bin Laden his merry christmas greetings over BBC radio, and auctions his Nashville-bought, Simon&Garfunkel signed guitar on Ebay “for the street children.” (No comment necessary. No bids either, at the time of this writing!)

My Christmas present to myself, free, the new Google Earth, which has amazing new hi-res images of the north coast of Timor and Dili. If you don’t want to download, try this site. Soon I will be posting a file of landmarks related to this blog, and possibly an animated “tour” of spots mentioned here.
