Looking through the eyes of a couple of “bule”

Kita yang terbiasa hidup di Indonesia pasti memiliki pandangan dan gambaran tentang masyarakat dimana kita berdiam, kadang kala gambaran itu stereotipe malah banyak menyoroti hal-hal negatif dari pada positifnya.

Bisa jadi pendapat orang asing tentang masyarakat kita akan sangat berbeda, salah satunya pendapat a couple of Brits, yang mengembara selama setahun penuh dari UK, Egypt, India, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, China, Malaysia, Indonesia. And right now they’re in Australia on their way to New Zealand. Dari perjalanan mereka selalu menulis tentang tempat yang dikunjungi dan kesannya terhadap masyarakat setempat.

Dari seluruh negara yang sudah mereka kunjungi, hanya masyarakat Indonesia yang diberi catatan indah seperti ini;

There is something rather special about life here and the rest of Indonesia; friendship, family and happiness simply outweigh a life with material comforts and it’s truly inspiring. Children have nothing more than a football or a fishing rod to keep themselves entertained and it seems adequate – no playstations or TV. Their passion for music is lifting, children and adults play the guitar on street corners, busses, the roadside, on mopeds and everywhere else imaginable. We have enjoyed our stay Indonesia more than most and it will be sad to leave. If nothing else, it has shown us the true meaning and what is important in life.

Hmmnn…..pretty inspiring isn’t it?

Terutama bagian “It has shown us the true meaning and what is important in life”, padahal di Lombok mereka sempat dikerjain polisi yang korup.

Dan ini posting mereka tentang Indonesian archipelago;

Indonesia is far larger than we had ever imagined and we now know our 30–day visa will only allow us to see a mere fraction of our original itinerary.

Tuh kan?

This is a great country, great people, great culture…….. kita harus bisa melihatnya lebih dari sekadar tempat tinggal……Ini tanah air!
