This is a nice read for you: http://www.1stopkorea.com/index.htm?....htm~mainframe
Thank you for posting that; it was a fascinating two hour read and I encourage everyone who has the time to read this. Excellent; thanks again.

You forgot the green font. If you've got about two hours to spare the travelogue that was posted, which I reposted right above this one is the best read ever of an outsiders trip into NK. Please take the time to read it; it's fascinating, heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time.
