“Selamat Siang, Apa Kabar?”These are a few of the phrases that participants learned at Georgetown’s recent Indonesian Culture and Folktales event. But there was much more to learn than just how to say "Good Afternoon" and "How Are You."On display were batik fabrics, statues, and coconut carvings from Bali, Indonesia. The kids even got a chance to handle wayang kulit, shadow puppets that have been used for at least 800 years in Indonesia.
