East Timor - Or Timor-Leste, a Southeast Asian nation occupying half the island of Timor,
is ringed by coral reefs teeming with marine life. Landmarks in the capital, Dili, speak to
the country's struggles for independence from Portugal and then Indonesia. The iconic 2
7m-tall Cristo Rei de Dili statue sits on a hilltop high over the city, with sweeping views
of the surrounding bay.
