A trip to the North/South Korean border January 22, 2007

Posted by Al in : educational,interesting,politics,travel , trackback

This is an interesting article which has a good little story, well told, and also give some useful background on the situation between North and South Korea. South Korea is now a fierce tiger economy, and one of the most technologically advanced nations on Earth, whereas North korea is struggling to feed it’s population (see my earlier article on them buying super rabbits as a wonder food), and the ongoing conflict between the two nations is not likely to end any time soon. It’s bizarre to think that South Korea keeps on living it’s life as normal when there is a militant, communist nuclear super power intent on regaining it to reunite the Korean nation, just 50km from it’s most populous city. I’ve never particularly fancied visiting North or South Korea, and this article doesn’t help to change my mind.

Well told. A great little story Really. Could have given more info on the actual war, but it was a great read. Youngest daughter is doing this as a topic for school and this website was a fabulous help. Thank you very much.
