I’ve revamped the language section of this blog in attempts to make it more readable and more interesting.  This version is slightly longer than the old version, but I think the information is a lot more personable.  I think I’ve transcribed this information in a way that tells a little about the history of the country and my life in it now.  READ ABOUT THE LANGUAGES OF INDONESIA.
