Dang It, Guess I'll Have to Change My travel Plans

Koryo Tours has announced that their U.S. tours to North Korea are cancelled after North Korea cancelled the Arirang Festival. First they shortened the tours after the Missile Launch from one week back to three days, now they are cancelled outright. Oh well, glad I made it there last year. If you ever get a chance to go, do so. Whether you support the regime, abhore the regime, or are an impartial observer, it is always good to get even a glimpse of an inside view to make better educated judgements, and the people are quite friendly (when they aren't staying far away from you).
