What is the capital of Indonesia?

Top of my bucket list is the aspiration – so long as I have the health and wealth – to have visited as many countries as my age. I have now been to 73 countries and I am 71, so I’m currently managlng to hit the target.

The most populous nation is the world that I have not visited is Indonesia which is only outranked in population terms by China, India and the United States, each of which I have experienced.

So I yearn to visit Indonesia, a country of some 70,000 islands, and I try to follow news from this under-reported nation. The latest news is that, since the capital Jakarata is sinking, it is proposed to relocate the political capital about 1,000 km to Kalimantan on the island of Borneo.
