Welcome and selamat datang ...

Welcome to my new blog on Indonesia. Ever since I spent a year there with Canada World Youth, Canada’s equivalent of the Peace Corps, I’ve been amazed by how much there is to know about Indonesia – and how little Westerners actually can tell you about it. It’s a kind of black box to Americans, a far-off land so foreign that they don’t even attempt to understand it. Hopefully this blog will be a small part of a fresh dialogue, a new stepping stone to an archipelago of 17,000 islands and 240 million people. Whether posts will touch on travel, culture, religion or politics, let’s start a conversation between Indonesia and the West. To Indonesia, the greatest country that no one knows ...

Great blog!
We need more people like you :) It's sad how Indonesia is perceived by the world as a fundamentalist Islamic country and a terrorists' nest. This is a view many people hold even in a country just 1.5 hours away (Singapore - where I've lived the past 7 years)
