If it's Tuesday it must be Indonesia

JAKARTA, Indonesia (CNN) - As a Texan, I'm used to Texas-size references, but did you know that Indonesia is three times the size of the Lone Star state? Blow my mind! In fact, it's the fourth most populous country in the world with 240 million inhabitants. The drive from the airport to our hotel was easy – a police escort always helps! My immediate impression was lush – it's green and tropical. Yet once I looked past the landscape it was buildings, buildings everywhere. Jakarta is a very modern city with skyscrapers, traffic and LOTS of helmet clad mopeders. I snapped this billboard from the bus on our way in. It's time to get to work. I'll let you know what else I find soon in the home of the Mount Merapi.
