Later in the day we met with a North Korean defector, who gave us a sobering glimpse of life living under that country’s oppressive regime. He told a fascinating story of escaping North Korea via China, Vietnam and Cambodia before arriving in South Korea. After completing a college degree, he now works as an international broker of heavy equipment.
Tomorrow we travel to a Buddhist monastery where we'll stay for the night. We'll be without TV or internet, so this blog will be silent for a couple days.
