Photographer's Note

This is my first photo in TrekEarth, so I want to give you all a warm hello!

To be honest, this photo isn't from Portugal, but from East-Timor. This is the first nation of the new millennium. Before 1975 it was a Portuguese colony, being since then ocupied by Indonesia until 2000 when it became independent.

This particular photo was taken in Dili (White Sand Beach), just before sunset, when the women serch for shells. There was a mist, which provided this almost pinkish tone.

I was there as an University teacher for a couple of months, but I couldn't help to get out and take photographs whenever I could.

I have much to share about this intense and rising nation.

Thanks to all of you!
