Joong-wha Choi, a former soldier in North Korea,

lives today with his wife and children in a sleepy London suburb,

home to Europe's biggest North Korean population.

 

Despite enjoying the new found comforts of his British life,

and being emancipated from the pressures of the North Korean state,

he has a desire to return to the land that betrayed him,

and feels like his true home.

 

Joong-wha reflects on both why he left North Korea

and the state of his day to day life over the course of several months,

in a portrait of loss, longing, and the complexities of healing from trauma.

From North Korea, With Dread        The New York Times        28 November 2017

 

When Nicholas Kristof traveled to the world's most isolated country,

he found a nation furious with Trump, and primed for nuclear war

— in kindergartens, amusements parks and the halls of government.

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife, evacuations of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have one very basic question

that you can't easily find an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com lets you do just that.
