Seoul, Day 2—The DMZ

For our second day in Korea, we took a tour of the DMZ. This is actually a picture of me on the North Korean side of the room. I was petrified to cross the line. That is a South Korean guard there to protect us. Someone once went behind the guard and the North Koreans opened the door and tried to grab him and the South Korean guard had to fight the North Korean guy off. At least that is the story they told us to keep us from getting too close to the door. And I was happy to believe it. I didn’t want to turn with my back to the door. That guy has some massive balls standing there.

The Architect with the North Korean building behind her.

Me, Meine Schwester, and The Archivist at the lookout point. You can use the binocular things on the other side of the building to look out over North Korea. We could see the Kaesan Industrial Complex from there. That is the city where South Korea employs about 40,000 North Koreans to build cars and stuff.

Along the tour we picked up another girl. She was imitating how the South Korean army have to stand at attention.
