I worked there for almost 12 years from Irian Jaya in the east to Aceh in the west & from Ternate in the north to Timor Island in the South. You need a lot more than 2 weeks to see Indonesia. Indonesia, from east to west covers the same distance as New York City to San Francisco (approximately 5,500 km) You forgot the entire island of Sumatra & Kalimantan. Also, a trip to the Molucca's would be in order (formerly known as the Spice Islands), There Lake Toba in North Sumatra, Borobudur & Yogyakartaon on Java and lots of other places worth seeing. Don't forget Komodo Island, home of the Komodo dragons. Irian Jaya all the way to the east.

Two months maybe. two weeks, no way.
