Indonesia-An absolutely amazing country!

Hello! I was just doing a report on Indonesia for school and as I read more and more about it, I decided I had to post about Indonesia! If you think Indonesia is just another place, you should really read this. (Information from Wikipedia)

"Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Indonesia is an archipelago comprising approximately 17,508 islands!! (Take that Hawaii:) It has 33 provinces with over 238 million people and is the world's fourth most populous country. The nation's capital city is Jakarta. The Indonesian economy is the world's 17th largest economy by nominal GDP. It consists of 17,508 islands out of which only 6,000 are inhabited! It's average population density is about 134 people per square kilometer. Indonesia has at least 150 active volcanoes including Krakatoa and Tambora, both famous for their devastating eruptions in the 19th century. The eruption of the Toba super volcano, approximately 70,000  years ago was one of the largest eruptions ever and a global catastrophe. Recent disasters due to seismic activity include the 2004 tsunami that killed an estimated 167,736 people in Northern Sumatra."

OK, what do you think of Indonesia now?:) Oh, and be sure to look at Anna's blog soon for a report on Peru.

Thanks for looking at my blog!
