It's the detail that matters, or a very brief DPRK update

I'm supposed to be working today (bet you are all jealous of the merry life of a freelancer...), but it would be selfish not to share this:


"The Taedonggang Combined Fruit Farm has come into being in Wonhung area in Samsok District, Pyongyang. Until last year, the area had remained a small rural community consisting of a few outdated villages with a zigzag river and uneven paddy and dry fields".

Shocking...

"In a matter of less than a year, the villages have all moved and nestled under a hill, the river course changed, a large hill totally disappeared and the patches turned into a large-scale orchard".

I'm sure the doubtless good people of the Wonhung area were just delighted about having their area insulted and then having the fun of being relocated like so.

Anyway, onwards:

"General Secretary Kim Jong Il visited the farm and enjoyed a bird's-eye view of the orchard with pleasure. Taking an appetizing apple weighing 550g (1.2lb) in his hand, he said Korea has one more pride, the eleventh scenic spot of the Songun era, this year when the Korean people's dreams have come true".

Hmm, I cannot think of many countries where even the prettiest fruit farm would make the top thousand most scenic spots.And note, there is no mention of KJI having eaten the apple.  Maybe if he had, he might have acquired knowledge of good and evil.....
