This place (Flores, right by Timor) is 90%++ Catholic, yet there were two muezzins calling their flock to the Friday prayers over megaphones today.  I was expecting a riot, but I gather this happens every Friday.   

Java (particularly the central and eastern parts) and central Sulawesi, along with Lombok and the Aceh part of far-north Sumatra, are where the really hard-core Islamic fundies turn up. Some parts of Sumatra (such as the Danau Toba area) are majority Christian.

In the meantime...bought a four-pack of Shift, a lager from New Belgium...sort of reminds me of the cheap beers I used to drink at university forty years ago (much much pricier though).
