We end Diplomatic Corner from Athena, Greece.

Who would have thought if in Athena, Greece, we will find motorcycle with Indonesian police number. The police number B-3737 UNM which belongs to North Jakarta can be found in Athena, Greece. The rider is Stephen Langitan, Solo Rider Adventure Jakarta – London 30.000 km who has begun his trip since March 25, 2018 from Jakarta. His plan is that the trip will end in London when celebration of the independence of Indonesia on August 17, 2018. Langitan will participate in the ceremony of the Indonesia’s independence at the Indonesian Embassy in London. On June 26, 2018, Langitan has entered Greece through Turkey. Because of non-stop rain, Stephen Langitan arrived in Athena on June 29, 2018. In Athena, the odometer precisely showed number of 19,900 kilometers. On July 5, 2018,  Langitan left London through Rome.

After his motorcycle was placed at the motorcycle workshop in Athena to ensure the safety condition of his motor vehicle, Langitan’s trip carried brotherhood, peace and driving safety message mission. The trip is also one of the forms to introduce Indonesia to people in the countries passed by. The trip so-called the trip of “Bendera Merah Putih" is a form of support in conducting Indonesia’s promotion throughout the world. Thus during the trip,  Langitan tried to avoid the main road or toll road and preferred to choose country lanes to interact with people and to introduce Indonesia.

That was Diplomatic Corner.
