I am in North Korea

posted on 25th of april, 2010

Mid-April, I walked into North Korea,it is a both familiar and strange country for me. In addition, it is also full of mystery country.

In the North Korean Customs, we are told that cellphone and laptop can not be brought into North Korea.

The second largest city in DPR Korea Sinuiju,We took the train
to go to Pyongyang.The distance from Sinuiju to Pyongyang is 220KM,but the trains stop and go,we reached Pyongyang at last six hours later....

It seems that time flows backwards ....We seem to get back to China more than 30 years ago.No commercial advertising in Pyongyang,only the revolutionary placards and political posters.
All these have aroused my childhood memory....

I found Pyongyang is a very clean and neat city,there are many modern buildings here.April 15 is the DPRK's Sun Festival. Kim Il Sung's birthday. This is the birthday of Kim Il Sung 99 years.
It is a very important festival in DPR Korea.

This is my first day experience in DPR Korea.

That is one big opportunity, and I am surprised that they allow you to take photos at all. Be safe and make sure you don't get caught.

As Maigi said: no advertising = great photo opportunity.

Nice pictures, I feel strange that how can you bring DSLR into north Korea? And the security police will delete the pictures in your DSLR.

Don't forget, this country is still in a state of war,like Iraq and Afghanistan. The only thing of this country care is how to survive.Poor country,poor people.
