An official spoke frankly to the Chairman Kim Jong Il that because Vladivostok station was a large station full of noises in the Far East, he apprehended that the Chairman would not take his good rest.
The Chairman laughed a hearty laugh saying that his apprehension was needless.
Then he said that as he got accustomed to taking naps and sweet and sound sleeps in his car and train, even the train noises had nothing to do with his rest. He continued that mechanical sounds from his car and train were a lullaby and bedfellow to him.
It happened early in the morning of August 24, Juche 91(2002) when he was on a visit to the Far Eastern areas of Russia.
