Pyongyang Holiday

Ever been to North Korea? No? Few outsiders have. The Atlantic has some fascinating pictures from inside North Korea, and it shows an interesting and paradoxical place.

Fascinating stuff. I had preconceived notions of what it would look like - mostly confirmed - but seeing the images is a whole different deal than just assuming what they might look like. A peek behind the curtain.

Agreed. And given the depressing nature of most of those photos, the modern places like the swimming pool are so jarring.
