I’m really close to North Korea. In a few days, in Dalian, I’ll be even closer, and could even hop up to the next town and take a boat right next to the North Korea border (the closest in the world any American could get).
India borders Pakistan. Also close to Afghanistan. This is where real shit goes down.
There’s something at once exhilarating and nerve racking about being in the center of the world’s action.
I’m happy I’m here, and I’ll be happy when I leave safely!
