  Demilitarized Zone: the Conference Table
by darthmilmo

For an even more impressive outlook of the Korean War, there is no better tour then one of the many daily ones to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) at Panmunjeom and Camp Bafis. Although the Cold War of the 20th century has come to an end in the rest of the world, things are still hot and boiling between the two Koreas. I took a tour with USO that not only took me into this border, but also let me have a view into several famous locations such as the actual conference table where talks take place between the Nth and the Sth. It was here that the ceasefire agreement was signed in 1953. Make no mistake; the Korean War is not officially over. I also had the pleasure of actually stepping into Nth Korea for a few minutes (nope, didn't have my passport stamped...argh) as this room is placed right on the border.
