Today I learned

May 2, 2022

Today I learned (courtesy of Wikipedia and other online sources) that East Timor is an island country that comprises the eastern half of the island of Timor. The island of Timor is located just north of Australia. The island of Timor has a bloody history of occupation, first by Portugal and then Indonesia. Thanks to help from the United Nations, Timor – now called Timor-Leste (Leste is Portuguese for “east”) – became a sovereign state in May 2002, at which time it joined the United Nations.

The capital of Timor is Dili.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but a man from Dili who is courteous and who has good manners could be called a diligent.

Would it be coincidence that today’s word prompt at Your Daily Word Prompt is DILIGENT? Or could it be something… more?
