There are a number of "approved" tour companies that run from China, who will cater to westerners... You just might not be coming back with them.
I meant independent tourist. They are not really open now

Mike Pompeo was in N/K over the Easter W/end and has opened the talks for Kim and Don meeting in N/K... Reported in the Washington Post last night. I'm paywall blocked so any link I copy & paste won't work here. I'm reading into the secret visit that Kim's surprise train trip to China is connected and China has been the go-between between US & N/K.

Probably a good thing that the CIA is covertly meeting foreign leaders rather
than trying to assassinate them. Interesting times.

Don't think so. I went into Myanmar a few weeks after they opened the land boarders with Thailand and relaxed travel restrictions on tourists

Sky, BBC and CNN all look in synch. Why not live?

Seoul said Kim Jong Un apologised to Moon for interrupting his sleep following North Korea’s nuclear tests last year, when Moon had to convene security council meetings in the early hours of the morning.

“We won’t interrupt your early morning sleep anymore,” said Kim, reiterating an earlier promise to stop carrying out nuclear missile tests.



What am I reading. Mad morning.
