I decided to make a blog so that I can actually tell you guys a little about what I have been up to -since I'm too long winded for facebook status updates. ;)
First things first, Susan tinggal di Indonesia = Susan stays/lives in Indonesia.
For the first week and a half I stayed in Jakarta getting the visa sorted out, visiting with people at the University of Indonesia
and generally getting my bearings and getting over the jet lag. This process was greatly helped
by how nice Indonesians are from the professor who has helped me in every step of the visa process to the canteen workers who had great fun showing me all the varieties of Indonesian food. The picture shows the "UI Hollywood sign" when I caught it in front of a nice sunset.
I generally stayed around the university most of the time, but my major adventure was my train ride to the center of the city (I was particularly inspired by the riders on top of the train). I went
up the national monument"Monas" which provided great views of the (huge) city and a convenient two hour line in which to strike up conversations with strangers.
