Building U.S.-Indonesia Mutual Understanding Since 1994

“What I found waiting for me was a entirely new adventure. The sights, the sounds, the history, the people, the food… everything was different from what I had experienced in any other country I had visited. Although there was a bit of a learning curve at first because I knew zip-zero-null of the language, I found myself excited to wake up the next day to a variety of stories waiting to told and lived. …Indonesia for me was some of the new “places and faces” that I had met this summer. I feel that Although it sounds odd, I feel I am a better and bigger person because of what I was able to be a part of this summer via USINDO in Indonesia. I will never regret travelling here, and would not regret going again.”
