North-South Divide

Well the rumours were true, and Kim Jong-Il (North Korean president) was here in China for the past 8 days as we suspected, despite official denial from all parties. Apparently, he was impressed by the special economic areas in Shenzhen and also by some high-tech agriculture set-ups the Chinese have going. This is a positive message for N. Korea, as it's subtly hinting at opening up and reform. Or at least I hope it is.

Final day today; lots of packing, posting and saying goodbye. V. sad to part with a certain person. But tomorrow i'll be home.
