life in the north


a coworker shared these videos with us via BBC news.When you have a good half an hour, you should watch both of them. the first video shows what a news crew was able to film about life in the north. it is quite interesting what they allow, don’t allow and share with her..it is mostly a scripted bunch of citizens who depict a flourishing nation.
then, click on the second link and hear first hand reactions from defectors and what life was really like for them in the north. 
now that we have spent a year here and seen the reactions of the south to the north, my opinions of what is going on are even more confused then before. i promise before we leave i will type something up, but i must figure out how to put it all into words.
you can form your own opinions
