an Aussie journalist's perspective on NK

My Seoul-based buddy Tom took a tour of North Korea (primarily Pyongyang) years ago. Joshua Stanton, of One Free Korea, has linked to a report by an Australian journalist who went on a somewhat similar tour this past February. The report is written in sparse, arid prose, perhaps in deliberate mimicry of the sparse, arid social and urban environment he encountered. Definitely worth your while. Having read Tom's series of articles, and now having read this newest article, I can say that almost nothing has changed.
