Makassar is a big city on Sulawesi.
There are two universities involved in PMRI: University Negeri Makassar (UNM) and the Universitas Muhammadiyah Makassar (UNISMUH)
One of the main reasons for Makassar to be involved in PMRI is Soedjadi. He has had quite some number of students from Sulawesi. The former students are really proud about and fond of Soedjadi. Sulawesi culture is – compared to Java – more expressive and more outspoken. Makassar people are determined. When they have something in mind, they do their best to get it achieved.
Hotel Clarion in Makassar is comfortable, big, across the street from the campus of UNM, and has an internet connection. There are many guests, it was fully booked (April 2009). More
