We were guest speakers at some universities in Indonesia for November 19–24, 2023.
When I try to describe Indonesia in a single sentence, the country is huge, with many islands and almost 300 million people. It is a hot country with cute people.
At night, as usual, I walked in the streets. Interesting culture: some people love street food, and in the darkness of night, they sit on the ground and taste their meal.
If you are from western countries, do not expect a standard breakfast; be ready for something like lunch or dinner, chicken, rice, etc. It is the same also in five-star hotels.
I’ve been in Surabaaya, Madura and Banten.
It was a different exeprience for food tastes, mostly they were delicous. Some tastes are different but its ok. I perefer you to try at least once.
Rice is the most distinguishable of all meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The good thing is that they don’t eat much bread. I think because of it, all ladies are slim…
In traffic, I just met an accident on a highway. Nobody argues on traffic; just all of them are calm; it is not easy to understand how they stay calm.
If you want a memorable trip, you should go to Indonesia for more than a week. It is better to know that they have no winter; you don’t need a pullover, boots, or coat.
For that opportunity, special thanks to Dear Prof. Dr. Tulus Suryanto. The 2nd ICOSTELM 2023 is a refereed conference organized by the Faculty of Islamic, Economics, and Business, Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Maulana Hasanuddin (UIN SMH) Banten, Indonesia, in collaboration with Sekolah Tinggi Ekonomi dan Bisnis Islam (STEBI) Lampung, Indonesia. http://icostelm.org/
