|Roberto pleased with our tour|
|We stopped at the first train station that goes into North Korea|
|Nicholas standing in North Korea, next to a South Korean Soldier, in the MAC Building, |
where both sides will be meeting tomorrow
Just across the way, we were being monitored by the North Koreans. Our military guide warned us to not making any verbal or non-verbal gestures, but to take as many photos of them as we liked, as they were doing the same with us at the time.

|Facing North Korea at the DMZ|

|Memorial where the tree used to be prior to the Ax Murder Incident|
|Bridge of No Return|
|Propaganda Village and North Korean flag, it weighs close to 600 lbs, |
so takes a strong gust of wind to get it to move
Although I didn't want to go, in the end I feel extraordinarily lucky to have had the opportunity to witness this and learn about the dark history of our current country.
