Attack on Afghanistan
Here's the latest news from Indonesia....
First of all I'm fine. I was a bit worried that there might be some real problems once America attacked Afghanistan, but no such thing. In Yogyakarta everything seemed as quiet and laid back as always. I heard 2nd hand that there was a protest today. 30 students marched down the street yelling anti-american slogans. I'm guessing that there were more than 30 students marching in Santa Cruz yelling anti-american slogans. Can anyone confirm or deny that?
In Jakarta and some other cities there were some larger protests, but apparently no riots, violence or bombings.
In the Osama bin Laden news, they are selling Osama bin Laden t-shirts near the Sultan's palace. I might buy one and send it home for my parents. And finally in tales of the weird an update on the rumor that Osama is in hiding in Indonesia. I heard that the police were actually stopping cars in Lombok looking for him.
