This project is a labor of love of several youths who want to document the sites that made Timor Leste. We are interested in buildings from the ancient, Portugese, Chinese, Japanese and Indonesian era, urban (and village) planning, hideouts, old conversations and the soil and sea of Timor Leste.

We hope what we do can be useful to you. If you have a bit of time, please send a little feedback so we can continually improve the blog.

Thanks and have the nicest day. Ate logo!
