Indonesia, the archipelago, made up of five main islands and more than 17,000 other small islands. On each island has its own culture, language, ethnicity, food and different characters, it will divide again by limiting the so-called provinces, each province also has a cultural, linguistic, ethnic, food and different characters, so can imagine how wealth of cultural, linguistic, ethnic, food and the characters have in this nation.
