just returned from a brief interview trip to oecussi, an enclave district of east timor tucked away in the middle of indonesia's west timor. the only way to get there (unless you are UN staff with access to exclusive helicopters) is a twice-weekly, overnight ferry from dili. the trip there is an adventure in itself - picking a path through a human patchwork of sleeping bodies...under the moonlight...on a rocking boat...poses quite a challenge!

throngs of people crowding their way into the ferry as the tide comes in.

a few passengers waiting at the ferry port against the mountainous backdrop of pante macassar, the capital of oecussi.
