Hari ini truk proyek keluar dari mekanik setelah 6 bulan “perawatan intensif” dan kami akan kembali ke Gleno untuk akhirnya mendapatkan penawaran untuk tempat tinggal kontainer … tapi saya rasa kami masih perlu belajar untuk siap menerima kejutan.. karena meskipun hanya sepertiga dari perjalanan 1,30 jam kami, the recently fixed truck just stopped… in the middle of the road.
So the mechanic came and picked us up, and to our surprise, Dili looked very different than when we left. … in less than 30min a flash flood covered the main roads… and Dili was flooded… (you can imagine the flood engineer in me went a little crazy, but this letter is not about that).
The car also randomly needed some mechanical medicine and instead of concentrating on the project, Luke had to run around, purchase and install car & truck parts to avoid the delays associated with the mechanic sourcing parts according to “island time”!
I’m very thankful for his patience and broad knowledge in construction, mechanics, engineering, business… and many other things! I’m truly blessed!
