I learned this week that Indonesia has tens of thousands of islands. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Indonesia has 13,670 islands, over half of which are inhabited. Wikipedia puts the number over 17,000. The truth is that the number of islands continuously changes due to seismic activity in the area.
Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world, after China, India and then the US.
Here’s a photo taken by Marlina Efrida of some Indonesian kids. What I love about this photo is that it shows how children are alike all over the world. Our kids love to make faces and signs when they have their photos taken too!
Here’s another lovely photo from Indonesia by Marlina…
If you’d like to share any photos from your country, feel free to email me.
Many thanks to Marlina Efrida for sharing her photos and to Lin Fdln and Dedy Subandowo for telling me about Indonesian life!
Come visit the Mama Lisa’s World Indonesia pages for Indonesian kids songs.

Thanks! I’m getting in love with Indonesia and its people.
Yes, it’s great that kids are all the same wherever you go. We have a youtube video singing Pelangi Pelangi in Indonesian (with Ecuadorian accent).
I’m leaving the link. I should send you a video of an Ecuadorian song soon.

That would be great… I love your blog! I’ve added your rendition of Pelangi to my Pelangi song page.
Cheers from Mama Lisa

Lisa, nice to see us in the Indonesian section. My son is ready for more videos but sometimes my hair is not ;)
Dedy, I’ve always been amazed by the diversity of Indonesia. I’ve also met really nice people from there. I hope one day I could go.

Here are some videos of me singing some of the songs on your site. Unfortunately I can’t really carry a tune, so I just posted the songs I came closer on. But the words are there for those who want to learn how to pronounce them:
