Impressive building work

Simon and Agostinho went out to Ostico again on the weekend, this time with Catherine and Sharad, two of the DLA Piper lawyers on secondment to the government in East Timor. Agostinho (the technical and practical person amongst the other three who are lawyers!) is very impressed with the work of Elvino. He has said that his attention to detail (even down to choice of paint color to match and hide the local mud) has been impressive. He could not be more positive with how things are going.

Only three months in and we are now thinking about the opening. Kirsty Sword Gusmao and the East Timor Education Minister are going to open the school which is fabulous. It’s amazing to think that they feel so strongly about this project for one small school to devote a whole day of their time to attending the opening.
