North Korea has the Bomb?? We do not know this but the America Force and South Korea Force believe it firmly. But it reminds me of China in the 1970s.
In the past 3 years one guy traveled to more than 40 countries around the world. One of his favorite things to do when he traveled is to interact with the local people and to learn more about their way of life and culture.
As a tourist in North Korea you don’t have a lot of freedom (if any), so of course he didn’t have the chance to wander on his own and talk to everyone he wished. But the people he interacted with on the streets, parks and other random places, seemed to be very friendly, nice and warm (just like in most places in Asia). And that was very different from what he had imagined prior to visiting the country.
People in North Korea have to do a lot of weird things
Like read about what the Dear Leaders did the last day while waiting for the metro
Dig a small pit of sand with 10 other people in front of a tourist site
Pay their respects to the Dear Leaders many times a year
Fill up the arenas during public events
And keep practicing raising flags in the air for pretty much every national celebration
But most of them seem to be very nice and friendly people simply living their lives and doing normal stuff like…
Getting bored during language classes
Playing football with their friends
Having romantic dates
Getting (very) upset when somebody else gets the main role
Having a dance stand-off in a public park
Taking a quick nap on the tram
Hanging out with friends
Running away from foreign grown-ups
Or even running a marathon
They’re just casually guiding tourists
Having long walks in beautiful parks
Dressing in their national costumes
Enjoying celebrations with fireworks
Or… simply doing their jobs
