Consulate General Republik Indonesia di Los Angeles

3457 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90010

KJRI Los Angeles - What a dissapointment


 Unfortunately, it is no surprise to any Indonesian, anyone have lived in Indonesia, or familiar with Indonesian government that its bureaucracy is unnecessary complicated and ineffective.  Not to mention corrupt, but that's a whole different issue for another day.  Being the-glass-half-full kind of person, I thought the consulates are different -- better -- since they are Indonesians only government representatives in foreign countries and the officers -- being chosen to represent Indonesia abroad -- supposedly more intelligent than the average local ones in Indonesia.  Plus, being exposed to a more effective American bureaucracies, I positively presumed it might be contagious to a better work ethics.
