Dutch guy missing in North Korea. First of all, what was he doing in North Korea? Selling stamps AND coins? If he was trying to sell North Korean coins, and smuggling some of that precious 주체moola, don’t know if the authorities would like that. Or maybe they didn’t care. That is, until he probably started asking about how to obtain coins before the last currency reform ?
Who really knows? I honestly hope he’ll be back with his family soon.
UPDATE (August 11, 2011)
Dutch guy apparently wrote an op-ed for 내나라, a North Korean publication, singing the praises of North Korea’s local elections, and even claims he’s gonna’ come back next year.
