Anyone else out there interested in Indonesia?I'm a Fool (from America) living in Indonesia and am wondering if anyone else is looking at this country in an investment sense. Yeah it's a third-world country, yeah the average Indonesian is essentially poor by the world's standards, yeah the country has been politically stable for less than 15 years, but I see a huge consumer culture here and booming retail.How have I invested in it? I bought a chunk of IDX, which tracks the Jakarta Composite Index (I think), another ETF under the symbol EIDO, and I bought a pile of YUM. Everybody bought YUM because they heard how KFC is doing in China. I can't drive 5 km without seeing a KFC, Pizza Hut, or A&W. Those are just as big here too.Any others out there? I'm a Fool on the ground!Scott B.Bandung, Indonesia
