North Korea—It’s Getting Trendy. Say What?

friday night fun

Guess what? Pyongyang, the North Korean capital and home to more than 3 million people, is becoming quite the hot spot travel destination these days. I think it sounds like a prison sentence. You tell me: First off: All foreign visitors and tour groups must be accompanied by guards. You can’t photograph much.

Eating airport food in India has never top on my list of promising meals. I’ll never forget the large swarm of flies that circled the pot of dal at the airport at Madras that quelled my appetite until we landed in Singapore. Lucky for me, our flight took off and we got out of there. But many people were forced to eat the food there, because—surprise, surprise— there are tons of delays there.
