First Impressions

Well, I'm writing here again. I haven't touched this blogspot account for over three months I think? I made it for my exchange to Indonesia and I'm here now (and I've been here for 2 weeks so I have alot of catching up to do) so I better start writing. Enjoy.

"Welcome to Indonesia. Death to drug-traffickers."

Those were Indonesia's welcoming words to me and the four other Americans arriving in Jakarta that day. it's right there, on the great big sign that hangs over the hallway before you reach customs. Such a contrast. We thought it was funny. Some of us took pictures. We all laughed and joked and got the message. Taking hits from the bong is just not acceptable here.
