A Year In Pyongyang

For those of you yearning for a bit of late-night online reading, I present an excellent site I came across many months ago.

The page provides a forum, for what should have been a bestseller, charting Andrew Holloway's year inside the Hermit Kindgom. Despite having been written about his stay during 1998, the story has much relevance for today's North Korea. As those who read will discover change is virtually non-existant or incredibly slow. It took me a good few hours to get through, but gave me an insight into many smaller, but significant, details you just wont discover on other sites.

Enjoy reading, I will update again before the end of the year, and will provide a review of 2005 on New Years Eve.

Seasons Greetings, Matty
