Both as an educator and more recently, as a registered nurse, I have been working on and off in Tanzania up until December 2012. Between 1981 – 1987 I taught at Marangu Teachers’ College on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. In 1981, via their Embassy in Dar es Salaam, five young North Koreans were sent there to learn English. At the time I was largely ignorant of the deep political tensions which existed between North and South Korea and the United States. However, as North Korea has most recently propelled itself to the forefront of global unease, the paradoxes which arose during my time with the students continue to reverberate within me.
