Amazing America

7 Februari 2008

We would like to say that it’s really a great opportunity for us to be New Orleanian, where we became a part of a heterogeneous culture within a big country, United States of America. Fortunately, we also had a lot of opportunities to visit, to see and to learn the other sides of this big country in any aspects of life.

And ….., it’s really amazing …..!

Amazing, for us who came from a small village in a developing community in an archipelago, far away at the equator. Amazing, that finally we made it : visit and see 48 states in the US contiguous, more than what have ever been seen by mostly American. Same amazing as 210 million people who live in 13,000 islands with hundreds of ethnic and cultures, hundreds of local languages and dialects, Indonesia.
