Just spotted this.

That's one of the great things about Jakarta and Indonesia, it's such a melting pot of cultures and people, it's a fascinating country.

Hat tip to Everything Indonesia.

it's a fascinating country

Sarcastic version:
Of course fascinating! How many anthropologists earned their Phd because of the fascinating culture on Indonesia...soon it's gonna be Islam, and not to mention political scientists.

Serious version:
I second that! While in other countries multiculturalism is boasted and even ideologised, in Indonesia, diversity is formed through a long history and it enriches the culture.
