    I’m so glad to have princess Maxima visited my country…but it’s too bad that I found out about her visit after she left Jakarta. The newspaper didn’t publish about her visit until after the Great Friday Holiday. If only I knew, I would be in the front of our presidential palace to see her by myself.
    I do hope the crown prince will accompany him next time….
