korea. what a surprise outsider the most about the common mistake for me especially as the asana creamy mac and now i find that i'm able to get very affectionate and a very incredible sense of humor that the first time i ate way too much too spicy and that i think it surprises people when they see my pictures see pictures of people kids just goofing around and people smiling and laughing and pursue this and that really surprises cute because he had this idea that being a very green place and it is extremely difficult place but people around the world they have their own hopes and dreams in the one in the contested the difficult situation so did you feel like your guests that could always take it down if you wrote the wrong story or did you have more freedom than other people word likely expect the agreements between bp and the north koreans to open bureau was certainly a landmark agreement and we take us a lot of expectation on both sites to what i think
