Re: Pictures of North Korea

No, I do not expect a tourist to see those. But what you normally see and hear are soldiers, more soldiers and starving civilians. So if you have a chance to travel there and indeed decide to publish some of your holiday pictures, I would expect some more on "they are pretty poor, but I did not see civilians in the capital starving". Maybe it is just me, but I honestly do not care what video games they have, but some more social insights. And I found the comments sometimes completely wrong as in: old houses are bad - I personally would actually prefer to see more of the old Asian cultures preserved than teared down and replaced by uniform concrete cubes... but anyway: Interesting to see some pictures from behind one of the last borders a normal tourist cannot cross.

Here are some monster rabbits for North Korea: http://www.spiegel.de/international/...458863,00.html
I think you missed the point. He's not saying "old houses are bad", he's pointing out that the N.Koreans (attempt to) hide the old houses. At least, that's how I read it. And he did mention the old woman picking herbs "for her rabbits...".
