Split night here

Good morning:
I drank too much coffee yesterday afternoon so I was wide awake at 2:30 this morning. I went back to bed after an hour but did not sleep well. So, I am giving up coffee for a week. We shall see how this goes...
The picture here is a night-time picture of South and North Korea. The bottom of the picture you see the lights of South Korea. Above the line there are very few lights. No lights. This is from a book Nothing to Envy. I reserved this at the library yesterday as I was listening to the author on NPR.
There is little electricity in North Korea. Yet those people believe they live in the best country, even when they eat soup made of bark and sawdust.
Enjoy your second Saturday of 2010.
