Frankly, I don’t know what to expect.
Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world. And my sense is that in the remote areas of the archipelago, Islam tends to be practiced in a more conservative manner than in the areas near Jakarta, the capital.
For example, the area of Aceh on the tip of the western island of Sumatra has a reputation for strict Islam. Sulawesi, far to the east has the same reputation. So, what will I find here in remote Kalimantan, the Indonesian area on the island of Borneo?
