North Korea must be one of the weirdest places on earth. This blog compiles photos and articles about tourism in North Korea. I hate traveling, but I’d be interested in going there. Many people tell me that traveling is good because you learn about different cultures and different perspectives. Well, I think, for that purpose, it would be hard to beat North Korea.
The entire nation is living in a fictional world. In every picture from North Korea, there is something funny and scary at the same time. All the tourists have this expression that says: “Is this real, or am I dreaming?” In some ways, it’s like going to Galapagos Island; a place utterly removed from the reality as we know it. Both places share one thing in common: no advertising and no American products. That must be a very strange experience.
