Message from the Author
Television news are talking about the leaders of the terrorists in foreign countries almost everyday but we hardly know how the people in those countries eat their meal everyday or how's the toilet in those countries are.
I accomplished this book with the help of those who live in Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Egypt ... the information was sent through Internet!
If you get some idea from this book, please give me a message!
