A Hot Spring
One day in July Juche 65 (1976), Chairman
The officials were at a loss what to do, because if he left for the hot spring at once, he would skip his breakfast.
When an official asked him to leave for the hot spring after having breakfast in Samjiyon,
And he said: According to an analysis report, the Naegok Hot Spring contains various medicinal elements. I would be very happy if we build a sanatorium so that people can relax there and visitors to Mt Paektu can bathe there on their way back home.
Thus, officials had to go to Naegok with the Chairman.
Just then, a train loaded with logs passed through the village, whistling loudly.
The officials became surprised.
The village was surrounded on all sides by mountains, so moving the railway would involve digging a tunnel 400-500 metres long.
Later the railway was moved, and the village, once noisy with train traffic, was filled with laughter.
