Due to the challenges and variations involved in giving fair postage costs to our clients both national and international the shopping cart function is unable to add the cost of shipping. You will find current postage costs under zzFreight in categories on the left. Check the weight of the product you are interested in and then allow some extra weight for packaging materials then check the individual tables for an indication of postage. Gradually we are adding an alphabet code at the end of each product description that you can apply to the postage tables. Place your order in the shopping cart then wait for an amended invoice from us before paying. Thanks for your understanding. You are always welcome to email or phone me first and we will provide a quote. julie@timortreasures.com.

Blessings and thanks from Julie and Delphi.

Ojek Riders

Timor is a land of contrast which could not be shown more clearly than by these OJEK riders who were having a FREE DRESS day. These tireless fellows ferry villagers and goods to and from their kampungs hidden in valleys off the Trans the Timor Highway that runs like a twisted spine along the mountainous center of the island. The roads they traverse, like the ribs off the spine, carrying the hum of daily life in Timor are often treacherous and usually eroded and heavily potholed (and we are not even talking about wet season travel here).

For more adventures clik at the top left of home page underneath the paypal sign…into JULIES SITE and go on an adventure with me.

Tem’tok’e!
