In 2010 to assist his recovery from too many years as a Victorian Public Servant – the land where good ideas go to die - the author took up two consecutive volunteering assignments – over two and a half years in what was then the world’s youngest country and youngest democracy - Timor Leste.

When you stop laughing go home is a book of personal impressions of modern day Timor Leste told through the prism of the authors daily life in a small township in the hills of Timor Leste.

This is a series of stories telling of how an ageing Australian in a transitional time in his life met a young nation in a transitional time in their life and how over two and a half years they worked together, laughed together, came to understand each other and helped rebuild each other.

The impressions while sometimes critical of the Government, some foreign consultants and some foreign aid programs tell of the respect gained by the author for the people of Timor Leste and his hope that at last they may experience the freedom to be themselves, govern themselves and build their own future in their own image and likeness.
