Rating: B+

"Indonesia etc"....I know nothing about it.
But Elizabeth Pisani's book is the perfect place to start.
She seamlessly blends her personal travelogue with fascinating facts
about the most invisible country in the world.
Indonesia occupies a unique place in among Asia's major powers.
The stronger Indonesia becomes, the more it could protect
...other lands against China becoming THE dominant power in Asia.
If it keeps its act together, will grow fast over the next few decades.
and become a serious strategic player in Asia in its own right.

Indonesia by E. Pizani for my #WorldFromMyArmchair challenge. I enjoy Pizani's jaunty writing style ! Pizani does go into minute detail about funerals, dowery for brides and the slaughtering of chickens or buffalo's (jick) at mama Bobo's in Sumba. I hope to read other things besides remote village customs."
