By Jack Profijt, Ontario, Canada
I guess the best way to start would be an introduction. My name is Jack Profijt and I live in Ontario, Canada, and there is no Dutch-Indonesian Community here to speak of. I live in a small city in Southern Ontario, which has a very good reputation for making wine and growing fruit.
I am one of the writers for The Indo Project blog. I was born in the Netherlands and immigrated here when I was still a baby in 1969. My mother was born in Indonesia and my father was a Dutchman.
First thing I would like to say is welcome. I am glad that you have found your way to our little space on the net. This space has taken some time to be willed into reality, but here it is. Through hard work and dedication this electronic space now exists. I would like to say good work to Bianca for her passion and perseverance and dedication, and as her husband has said, it is truly a labour of love. In this space you will find a wide selection of topics and writers from around the world.
This part of The Indo Project is only Phase I in a succession of things and ventures that will be announced at a later date. I am happy to be a small part of a project that is very close to my heart. In the near future I will provide personal insights, commentaries and hopefully useful information to this blog.
I am excited to be a part of a team of writers that have a passion for all things Indo.
