What do you know about Jakarta, Indonesia? How safe is it? are there any diseases that Americans need to watch out for or foods to avoid?

Indonesia (specifically Bali) has had a lot of bad publicity in the Australian media recently following the deaths of young tourists. They go there wanting to party and come home dead.

So to speak.

The problem is that some bars are selling booze mixed with methanol and it's deadly. check this report: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-01-10/methanol-death-asks-questions-of-bali-bootleg/4460170?section=business
