Nepal, the fabled land of Buddha, Hindu temples, and unrivaled mountain scenery, was controlled by a myriad of factions beginning in the 4th century.

Little is known about Nepal's early history. However, it is certain that the Kirant tribe inhabited the region more than 2,500 years ago.

The modern Nepalese state began in the late 18th century when King Prithvi Narayah Shah successfully unified most of the individual ethnic groups and small principalities into one entity.

In search of additional lands, Nepal ventured into India, subsequently losing part of its own territory to British India, but retaining its independence.


尼泊尔的早期历史知之甚少。 然而,可以肯定的是,根托族部落居住在2500多年前的地区。

现代尼泊尔国家始于十八世纪末,国王Prithvi Narayah Shah成功将大部分个别民族和小国家统一为一体。


North Korea

Archaeological evidence on the Korean Peninsula indicates that humans inhabited this land some 500,000 years ago.

Under the rule of Kim Jong Il, demoralization swept ruthlessly across the land, and after decades of economic mismanagement and misplaced resource allocations, North Korea now relies heavily on international aid to feed its growing population, while sadly continuing to expend resources to maintain a huge army.
In June 2000, a historic first North-South summit took place between the South's President Kim Tae-chung and the North's leader Kim Jong Il.

However, tensions again flared between the two sides as a South Korean navy ship was sunk in 2010 by a reported North Korean torpedo.

Kim Jong-un, the youngest son of Kim Jong-Il, was declared supreme leader of North Korea following the death of his father on December 17, 2011.

Recently North Korea's nuclear weapons program has prompted the expressed concerns of China, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and the United States.

North and South Korea are as different as black and white when economies, living conditions and personal freedoms are compared, but on the Korean Peninsula today there are millions of people still hoping for the eventual reunification of their common culture and extended families.
