    Aceh's Governor Arrested by KPK?

    There are reports that Irwandi Yusuf, Aceh's governor, has been taken in for questioning by KPK (Corruption Eradication Commission). I am not 100% certain that he has been arrested. I certainly hope not. If this is true, I suspect there will be a great deal of unrest in Aceh...

    Toilet Cafe in Semarang

    Some weird/fluffball news concerning Indonesia. I'm not normally grossed out, but I dunno... this one makes me feel ill at ease. The pictures are about what you'd expect for a place that serves food out of a toilet...

    No Longer In Aceh...
