    Would you travel to Indonesia now? Should I stay, or should I go now...

    I don't know about the bottom image but I would say the 1st covering could be the handiwork of jstar. I do believe he is also known to frequent the area.

    Indonesia plans restrictive law on music.

    Now if they could just list corruption, and prioritize it, in the list of slippery slope moral grievances against religion, broader society and the younger generation:tape:, then maybe some real progress could be made. But the best way to ignore the elephant, or in this case elephants, is to...

    British woman slaps immigration officer for GBP3000 overstay fine.
