Indonesia & Current Curriculum

The upcoming trip to Indonesia must be on my mind.

Two days ago, my AP Human Geography class was taking a test on our Political Geography unit.  As I was reviewing the test before having photocopies made, one of the questions jumped out at me since it was about Indonesia.  I have then started exploring for other questions in my test banks which already address Indonesia within my current curriculum.  Some of these questions are specifically about Indonesia while others use Indonesia as an answer choice.
