VERY INFORMATIVE...There isn't a whole lot of photos and personal experiences from NK, especially from a foreigner. He was Russian and was given more access than a westerner.
Yeah, I have seen this photo account. The guy is a son of Russian writer Tatyana Tolstaya (a distant relative to the author of "War and Peace"). He says the country is stuck somewhere in the 50s...
My avatar at IAP is his thingie. S1
I saw that thing a few days ago. Plowing with oxen,guys that is NOT the 1950s.
CNN actually had a good special a few months ago. The special revealed North Koreans were starting to use technology to contact the west and asian countries seeking help. Showed pictures of executions for those trying to escape.

The photo that says it all is the one showing the two roads.
I saw that special....it was good, but I felt I learned more from this pictoral narrative.

That one stuck out for me too.
When he was in my city he took a few pictures as well.
I cannot identify a couple of places.
From Pyongyang he came to China. Another Asian country Kazakhstan.
Welcome to the last dictatorship of Europe, Belarus.

Korean IL-62 left the airspace of Stalin's era and landed in Beijing.
The first feeling - if here is communism, than I am a Chinsese pilot.

It's difficult to call China "the Western country", but they have everything for life, escpecially in big cities.

I have liked China at first glance. I have never been in the Western part and haven't visit villages -but I am looking forward to go there.

Beijin.
Beijin seemed to me relatively uninteresting and dusty. (That's true, my mom says the same -too much of soot in evenings and nights)

The restored Great Chinese Wall. (4 km of it formed as a ring)

Legs become tired too quickly. I remembered that Chinese Wall was built to ward off enemies, so I looked for an enemy outside and spotted a dustman.

The stones turned out to be soft. At the top of the tower inscriptions are rare. So I left a Russian word : fuck.

Xiang
Terracot warriors. These statues were dug into the soil in the II century.

There is about 6 thousand of them and Chinese attract tourists by them.

There is also a wall in good condition and nothing else to sight-see.
ShangHai
A crazy city.

In the sober mind I declare I agree to live in such a communism.

The highest building in China TsinMao.

A hotel on the top of Tsin Mao and a bar on the first floor.

There is amazing garden YuYuang. Firts time in my life I understood why did they grow gardens. The photo cannot give a hint to the charm of labyrinth, paths, a pond and little houses. All Impreial gardens in Japan just look like a mowed lawns contrasted to this ones.
