Korean family reunions

So, I woke up to this today. http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/18/world/asia/north-korea-family-reunions/index.html?hpt=hp_t2. Apparently the Korean governments are working together a little more. Good for them & good for the families. The Kaesong Industrial Park might reopen. Wait, September 19? Is that within ... yeah. I'm likely to be in-country at the time, though significantly farther east than I expect any news to happen.

In other news, I need to get ridiculous amounts of small-denomination euro currency (and I need to figure out my denomination breakdown tonight). Still waiting to hear back on immunizations. And, due to rain, Mt Myohyang is inaccessible (so the International Friendship Exhibition seems off the table). On the upside, I do get to go to a city very few Westerners have been to. It's quite possible that I'm in the low teens of westerns (and probably americans) that will set foot in the brewery. Neat.

I'm actually really excited to see the breakdown of ages & nationalities. And how many people are doing the full trip vs a half-trip itinerary.
