I have been watching and reading Indonesian news lately, especially about what is happening in Indonesia in the last weeks. There was a news that a kid was kidnapped because his kidneys. Someone wants to sell them to rich people abroad. Scary and terribly sad story
When i lived in Indonesia, i still remember how terrible it is to be a foreigner there. That i see from my husband’s life.
I did not feel safe whenever he went somewhere to work for example. About a few years before we got married, we went travelling to another city with a taxi, and it was a crowd, so our vehicles stopped. A guy came with a knife and knock our window asking for money.
Of course i was so scared, and we gave him about 5000 Rp ( 5 cents) and he was happy. Poverty is the problem.
Poverty is caused by low education, lack of working skill, so people tend to earn money in a bad way.
Problems that still exists in Indonesia:
2. Education is not a priority.
3. Islam terrorists.
I guess the lists still go on, but those problems are obvious. I still love my country anyway!
