Get better bud... that sensitive Austrian tummy can't take the crazy food!
I can't stand being sick like this. But i'm SO looking forward to being in Austria and enjoying a Wiener Schnitzel....It would be even better if you were there too ;)

The only positive thing about not having your pack.... is that you don't have to live out of it......

Well, about the "don't point at the N-K" thing. Don't forget: the South Koreans have a pretty good money making operation going there. Make it really scary and they have perpetual justification for whatever they want to do in the name of saving their populace. Also, they can charge more if you think you may die.

Sorry; not to say it's not dangerous. Just don't forget why they construct the reality of the "trip" the way they construct it. They could give it a different vibe if they wanted.

And...lastly, the N-K guard has to serve in the military or he gets shot, and dies. There's a good chance he's not there by choice, and he may have nothing but envy for S-K's and non-K tourists. (But then again, maybe not...I'm just saying it's a possibility.)

Glad to here everything is going well, I'm enjoying reading the updates.

Have fun with your Dad,

I totally agree with what you are saying. When you are in Korea though you start to understand how serious this is though. These people aren't joking around.

Secondly, is it dangerous..who knows. The tourguid that i had, told me that he had a tour once and things got ugly. Weapons were drawn, etc.

Thirdly, military service is mandatory for both North and South Koreans. In S-K, it is two years, but is actually close to three. And there have been many, including recently, several S-K working in the JSA area commited suicide. The owner of the gueshouse that i was staying at, used to be a Rock Soldier, and he told me that that was the most stressful job EVER. I told him that he has never worked at TFs, which i consider to be the most stressful job ever. . .not a haha moment.

I think that it was a great exerience tho and i would recommend it to anyone that comes to Korea.

Oh, by the way, as I see Trav got in to UBC, I guess I should say I got into the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs in Ottawa. Pretty good, but if I get in to UBC I may go there just so I don't have to live in Ottawa.

I hope that you get into UBC too, cause i can't stand being so far away from you.
