Skipping over a nice but rainy adventure in Bali, I will jump right into to telling about an important experience I had today.
Ever heard of Freeport? Let me give you some background information:
I hope it's legal and ethically acceptable if I excerpt some information from Wikipedia (giving it all credit, of course):
As I side note, I have been rather frustrated with the quality of Indonesian media sources. Example: When Kim Il Jong died, I only found out through another exchange student friend who brought a laptop and regularly reads American news online. Not until three days later did I see a clip of a few seconds briefly announcing that the long time dictator had died. That was all I heard about that, then they skipped on to the burning of a car in Los Angeles. Then a story about flooding in Jakarta. Which happens every year without fail. So, not exactly the best international reporting.
