Memories from North Korea

Mar 25, 2019

These were my wonderful North Korean tour guides back in 2010, while I was exploring the many roller coasters of Pyongyang:

What I took away from that trip was that North Koreans are totally normal people, grappling with poverty, but much less brainwashed than you may think.

I have no idea where my two friends in that pic are today, and what they’re doing. But it heartens me that ongoing political developments will probably ensure that they, too, one day will travel abroad and get to explore Seoul and Tokyo for themselves. I really wish this for them.
