We stopped by one of the weekend markets we saw on our way back from Same via Ainaro to Dili in Timor Leste.
This man approached me and asked to have a photo with his prized possession – his fighting rooster!
You will meet all kinds of people in weekend markets, we even do our advocacy campaign in places like this because all the people from the different villages, behind and beyond the hills come down to sell the produce of their lands, sell cheap chinese goods and to bargain for their weekly supplies – rice, vegetables, root crops etc.
This is also a time for people without electricity to charge their phones and other electronic device for a fee or free using portable solar batteries.
Life is good when you take the time to meet people and you let them know you too.
