Andres Gentry reports stories in his blog, Water, and works as an English language teacher somewhere in China. Take a look at a side of North Korea and China that is not as well known as it should be: North Korean female refugees bought and sold as wives in the Chinese countryside. Here's an excerpt:
The preference for male babies in rural China has led to a shortage of marriage-age Chinese women. Unable to woo a partner with the usual blandishments, men are often willing to pay $300 -- more if the woman is especially pretty.
Thanks to The Marmot's Hole for pointing me to Andres' engaging blog.
