Since it seems like everyone else had already done it, or had no interest in going, Ben and I braved the 8am trip to the DMZ by ourselves. We went with Koridoor, on the USO tour, which I can recommend.

Since it seems like everyone else had already done it, or had no interest in going, Ben and I braved the 8am trip to the DMZ by ourselves. We went with Koridoor, on the USO tour, which I can recommend. It was very well organized and we saw a lot.

The American soldiers really accented the conflict between the South and North. From their talks to the museums, there is a lot of propaganda apparent on both sides.

I did a lot of research while in University about the conflict between the two Koreas, and it was an interesting experience for me to have. Yet, even after going to the DMZ, it’s still really hard for me to wrap my mind around the two countries being divided and how reunification could occur in the future.

It took me a long time to update with this post, because I was hoping my thoughts would become less muddled. Sadly, time hasn’t helped. Looking at the photos of that day still leave me a bit dumbfounded. I’d have to say that visiting the train station and crossing the tracks that remain unconnected to the North was the most bizarre. I’m so happy I went, but the same questions linger unanswered for me.
