I’m proud of Indonesia

Indonesia is a big country. It is between two continents, Asia and Australia, and between two oceans, the Pacific ocean and the Indian Ocean. It is the largest archipelago in the world. There are more than 17 thousand islands in Indonesia. There are many seas in Indonesia, the Java Sea, the Bali Sea, the Arafuru Sea, the Banda Sea, the Timor Sea, and many others. We also have many straits, like the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatra, the Bali Strait between Bali and Lombok, and many others.

We have a lot of islands. The big ones are Papua, Kalimantan, Sumatera, Sulawesi, and Java. Of the five islands, Java is the smallest, but it is the most populated one. We can find people from around Indonesia. Indonesia also has many mountains. Many of them are still active and can erupt any time. We call them volcanoes, like Sinabung and Marapi in Sumatra, Merapi in Java, dan Lokon in South Sulawesi. When they erupt they bring out very hot lava from inside the earth.

Indonesia is on the equator. It is a tropical country. The sun shines brightly everyday, so it is mostly hot. It has two seasons, the rainy season, and the dry season. The land is very fertile. Farmers grow many kinds of vegetables and fruits. They also grow coconuts. Indonesian people eat a lot of vegetables like spinach, carrots, long beans, eggplants, cabbages, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, garlic, chillies, kangkung and many others.

We also grow many kinds of fruit. We call them local fruits, like guavas, bananas, rambutans, durians, mangoosteens, soursops, papayas, pineapples, and salak. Some people call it a snake fruit. They are all very nice, sweet, and juicy. We eat them fresh. We also make delicious juice of them. We also dry many kinds of fruit to make crackers.

Indonesia is also rich with spices, like pepper, coriander, ginger, clove, cinnamon, turmeric, galangal, lemongrass, bay leave, and so on. We use them to cook very spicy Indonesian foods. People also make nice healthy drinks from them. They are useful for our health.

Many kinds of fish, big and small, live in the Indonesian seas. Most of us eat fish with our meals. We also eat shrimp and different kinds of shellfish. But we don’t eat big fish, like dolphins and sharks. We protect them. We also protect our turtles. Indonesia also raise different kinds of animals for their meat, like cows, goats, pigs. We get beef from the cow, mutton from the goat, and pork from the pig. Some ethnic groups even eat horse meat. Our milk is usually from cows. Of course we also have chickens. They give us meat and eggs.
