Security Council Resolution 1325

Dili, Timor-Leste: Whoosh! A cascade of water flew into the air as a Tour de Timor biker grabbed the open bottle from my hand and continued up the steep Natarbora hill. It was obvious that staffing a water station for the Tour de Timor 2011 was going to involve a personal soaking. As I, along with three national staff with the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT) and a group of community volunteers, filled water bottles and camelbacks, the bikers seemed relieved to receive our smiles and the refreshment.
