Lonely Birthday Video January Twenty Fourth is a video about a song from the Timor-Leste Republic. The video gives you an idea about the music and the land.

Timor-Leste is a small country in South East Asia and is the first country that gained its sovereignty in the twenty first century when it became independent on May 20, 2002.

It has a land area of 5400 square miles and a population of about 1.2 million people. It is a mountainous country, the highest point in Timor-Leste is 9721 feet and the lowest point is at sea level.

Timor-Leste is on the southernmost part of the Indonesian archipelago, about 400 miles northwest of Darwin, Australia. It has two seasons, a dry season from May to November and a wet season from December to April.

In the dry season the temperatures range from 68 to 91 degrees Fahrenheit. In the wet season the temperatures vary from 84 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

There are many fascinating aspects of Timor-Leste. Timor-Leste has been inhabited since 40000 B.C. and has had waves of immigrants, despite its remote location. The official languages are Tetum and Portuguese but Indonesian and English are used as well. The inhabitants of Timore-Leste have a strong culture of poetry.

Before its independence, Timore-Leste used to be called East Timor. But Timor means East! Even though Timore-Leste is a small country in a remote location, its currency is the U.S. dollar. In 1996, two of its residents, Bishop Carlos Filipe Ximenes Belo and José Ramos-Horta, shared the Nobel prize for peace.

Timor-Leste exports interesting products like sandalwood, marble and coffee. If you have had coffee at Starbucks you have tasted their coffee because Starbucks purchases Timore-Leste coffee a lot.

If you know of a video of a birthday song sung in Tetum, Adabe, Baikeno, Bunak, or any of the other languages local to Timor-Leste, please let me know at Lonely People Champion Facebook Page.

Happy Birthday to you. Here is the Twenty Fourth video of the experiment:
