Where I'm Headed

Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim country. It is also one of the most diverse. Stretched across nearly 3,000 miles and 18,000 islands, the nation is anchored by it’s sprawling capital, Jakarta. With 24 million people, it is the world’s second largest city behind only Tokyo. Amazingly though, despite its burgeoning population and densely populated cities, Indonesia also has vast areas of jungle wilderness that support one of the world's greatest biodiversity.

Indonesia's motto, "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika,” meaning "Unity in Diversity" (or more literally, "many, yet one"), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support the some of the world's greatest natural biodiversity treasures.

Welcome back to Indonesia Dr. Grant. I've learned so much from your Humanities lectures and hope I'll get a chance to meet you in the Morning Star Teachers Conference.
