Please be informed that the main weekend for the Oecussi Festival is August 11-12.

Anyone interested in coming to the festival from Dili on this weekend and willing to travel to Oecussi on the ferry “Nakaroma” on Friday evening or possibly Saturday morning, returning Sunday evening, please let mmux know ASAP.

Someone needs to have an indication of the number of people willing to use the ferry before the Oecussi Administration approaches the government to reschedule or charter the “Nakroma” for the festival.

All UN staff will need to follow normal UN security and movement of personnel clearance procedures before traveling (by any means) to Oecussi.  Accommodations in Oecussi are limited; however, many international staff renting houses in Oecussi are willing to host colleagues arriving from Dili, if advance arrangements are made.  

Oecussi is considered a low security risk environment and has a lot to offer tourists.  The festival will be a celebration of traditional culture and sport, mixed with modern music and dance

The Oecussians answered in block to a message I’ve sent last week, upon my arrival from the enclave. The Twagiramungo family is ok, between Paris and Italy, miss Revaug seems to enjoy her new life back in Melbourne. Harriet says hello and that everything is ok in Sydney. Friend Cross says that he’s green of envy. Madam Karam won the prize for the best reply with “Ooh, makes me homesick for good old Oecusse. I miss the view! Sitting on the back verandah looking at a suburban fence is somehow not the same as looking out to the beautiful sea (only interupted by the occasional masturbator).” he must have had a lot to do on the last few months, with so many election girls around. Very nice to know that it’s all good with you, everything ok in timor.
