Actually, I'm glad to see this. Hopefully it'll be easier to smuggle Bibles into the north now. Just like everywhere, it's not the people, it's the policies. I didn't know much about Korea or Koreans until last year, but now I've learned the language (well, almost) and culture - for the most part, they stopped eating dogs when McDonald's moved in (except maybe Schnauzers) and they make better cars than we do now.

We've got lost of Bibles. People just fail to accept it for what it is. Instead, they say stupid things about it without ever checking it out for themselves.

Don't see the shell
See the inside..

Take train and 400000000 dollars were cost to go to the North Korea once.

It is advertisement to take a picture that it is just before presidential election.
Ride those ten another things and someone goes.
It is politician and ulcerous bureaucracies only that like that is shown face in newspaper.

hmm...
There is no the train contents, but real Korea's essence has come out in this place.

Korean,

Thanks for the link. I'll look at it from time to time. I attend a Korean church here in Florida and have found the Korean people really nice and hard-working. I look forward to visiting your country again someday because I was only there once for a short time. Again, thank you for the link.

I'm right there with you Kermit. Those poor people are dying in poverty so that mental-pervert can live in luxury at their expense. It seems to be the way of the world.
