Aug 15th 2010 11:24PM I am an American who attended the Arirang Festival a few years ago. It was totally amazing - like nothing I've ever seen before.
Feb 22nd 2009 1:44PM I am an American who took a tour of North Korea with Koryo Tours 2 years ago. (Before Obama ~ for those of you that thinks this has something to do with his policies) Am I some rich American? No, I'm a teacher who feels that my travel experiences enrich my classroom. Did they feed me a constant diet of propaganda for 4 days? Absolutely! Was I aware that I was only seeing what they wanted me to see? You bet! Did I have an experience unlike any other and get to see a place that most people will never get to see? No doubt!
Sep 10th 2007 7:38PM I have never seen so many comments by racist, prejudiced people as I have seen today. I'm ashamed to say that I am American after reading these. Unless all of you are Native Americans, your families all came from somewhere else. What makes our country great is that we are that melting pot of other cultures. I have spent a lot of time in China and I have never gotten a McDonalds receipt in anything other than Chinese. I always remember that I am in their country and I don't speak their language, Luckily I have always met people who are open to foreigners and who try to help me in English. It's a pity that we don't do the same thing in the US ~ It's ironic that a country that does not have the greatest track record on human rights is more accepting of others than our so called "melting pot" Before you get on your soapbox and rant about things you know nothing about, get off the computer, out of your house and go see the world you're complaining about. Until then, don't criticize what you don't understand.
