It was just a few weeks ago when I finished reading Kang Chol-Hwan’s “The Aquariums of Pyongyang” and got really affected by the book. I never imagined meeting the man in person. But last night I did and my own copy was signed by Kang Chol-Hwan himself.

I am so grateful that a church mate told me about Mr. Kwan’s schedule to speak at the last day of this “Speaker Series on North Korea” organized by the North Korea Strategic Center (NKSC).

I got what I wanted and more. I have more materials about North Korea and some of its defectors that I could read in the nights ahead:
