For my birthday, my boyfriend arranged for me to take two weeks off work to travel to the place in the world I have most wanted to visit for as long as I can remember. Hurrah! But it turns out that right now is a terrible time to go there (political upheaval, violence, etc.). Sadness. Can you help us figure out where we should go instead? [more inside]

Obama in Jakarta: Does anyone know where and what time Obama will address the public in Jakarta? I heard through the grapevine that he might deliver a speech at the Universitas Indonesia. But my searches on the internet have only turned up information about a speech at the Istiqlal Mosque
. Still, there is no information about date or time. I would like to see him, if I can. Thanks.

I'm an Aussie who is going to be spending a month in northern Georgia, in the area of Cedartown/Tallapoosa
visiting his girlfriend's mother and boyfriend for Christmas.
I'm looking for cheap and interesting things to see and do in the area -the weirder the better. I'm not adverse to travelling into Atlanta.
Any advice you could give would be much appreciated!

Bookmending tape. I'm looking for brands/recommendations for 1/2" - 1" wide bookmending tape, to fix broken hinges, and/or cracked spines from the inside, and with adhesive that will not damage the paper. Nothing super-fancy, and bonus points for something I could maybe find in local stores! Thanks!
