Day 18^Kidding. I didn't go in North Korea...
I did however get close enough to the boarder at the West Front Line (Paju-si, Yeongcheon-gun). It took us more than an hour to get there, but it was totally worth it. We ended up checking out the War Memorial, Pond of Freedom, and just the plain old observatory deck.

Eomook (fish cake) = 600 won
There was a small play area for children. The strangest thing about this peace park were all the old war machines.

Back at the station, we decided to leave our marks (on the wall and guestbook) since everyone was doing so.
|You'll never know if I spelt my name right or wrong....|
After going in and out to check out 3 restaurants for dinner, we end up finding the one we wanted on the fourth try. Totally worth it.
