Barack ObamaIndonesiaMakes Statement

Visits Indonesia

9 Nov, 2010

Barack-Obama-and-Michelle-006President Obama arrives in Jakarta on a brief trip to Indonesia, where he lived for four years as a child.

Obviously, much has been made of the fact that this marks my return to where I lived as a young boy. I will tell you, though, that I barely recognised it as I was driving down the streets. The only thing that was there when I first moved to Jakarta was Serena [a shopping mall]; now it’s one of the shorter buildings on the road.
