While walking through the streets of Dili, I came upon an elderly man in a military style uniform. Through broken conversation with a bunch of curious bystanders, I had it explained to me that his name was Jaime Goncalves and who, 1986, picked up arms and fought as a guerilla soldier against the Indonesians. The Indonesian military suspected Jaime of being a militant, and cut off his trigger finger.
