The Market in Gleno

The village of Gleno is in the Ermera district of Timor-Leste. Ermera is known for its coffee and much of the coffee is organic and the owners are mainly small farmers. If you go to Starbucks, you've had Ermera coffee. This is a shot of the market. Gleno is about one hour southwest of Dili.

Mother and Child

I was driving east about 40 kilometers outside Dili when I stopped along the road to look at hand-made baskets. The villagers make them and sell them for a few dollars. This woman and her baby were standing nearby.
