Interesting fact – the worse are the roads to a place, the richer is the church. Atsabe is a perfect example of this. One of the most grandiloquent churches I’ve seen by far in Timor, standing among total poverty with the worst roads in the country. The contrast is stupefying.
An old church under the tree is completely abandoned. I arrived during some festival so the town was full of nicely dressed people from the area.
