Not much time for reading these next few days -- we're in Korea visiting Kent -- touring Seoul and beyond. Went into the DMZ today -- crawled through some tunnels reportedly dug by North Koreans wanting to invade the south -- and at one point we actually were in North Korea for a few minutes. Opening the zone to tourists must be of some political benefit.
Seoul is an great city -- reminds me most of Seattle in the States.
Koreans are single-handedly trying to keep the tobacco industry solvent.
