Indonesia was our Country of the Week. We looked at the history of Dutch colonization, the rocky road following independence, and the modern, changing face of the country. Get it all HERE.

In our Travel Guide we found out just how many volcanos there really are in Indonesia! That wasn’t all though. We also hit the beaches, explored a mega-city, visited ancient temples, and much more HERE.

This week’s Currency Spotlight delved into the history of one of the world’s most inflated currencies – the Indonesian rupiah. That doesn’t mean the economy isn’t a force to be reckoned with however! See more HERE.
