33 WowShack Photos That Sum Up An Extraordinary 2016

2016 has been a crazy year. 

With explosions, the rise Go-Jek and Uber, the Haze, celebrity deaths, the Olympics, the so-far peaceful expression of society’s radical elements, and even the increasing price of cigarettes – Indonesia has had its own involvement in the global whirlwind.
