One of them my bud danu - from the homeless world cup website

He had a great time in Scotland representing Indonesia and says they came in #7 out 52 countries. Danu and his teammate Eman got best goal keepers. Selemat atas kemenangan! Congratulations Danu and Eman!

Danu is the backup goal keeper. Eman is pretty amazing. He was born without feet. Read about him at the same link.

Danu's mate of a couple of years is our American friend Alice and due to that relationship he said he was the only member of the team who was used to eating anything but standard Indonesian grub. Indonesians eat rice at almost every meal. He said they'd point at the food and say, "What's that?" and "Where's the rice?"
