ROFL Mao!

Clearly, these people have no clue.

Welcome to the world’s best new tourist destination. Welcome to North Korea.

Hahaha! A North Korean cruise ship.

This is what happens when you impose 100% isolation on yourself and your people for 60 years.

The initial premise that it is for needed revenue is plausible as they know that there are cruises and that those cruises are pretty popular. Been on two myself. The problem here stems from the rather  likely fact that… no one’s ever been on one!

And… what to do about putting on influences from the outside world, like the shopping the Chinese tourist suggests… can’t have that! No! Duty-free cigs? Ha!

It’s apparent right from the standardized “tour” that visitors are taken on and shown in just about every doc you see about visiting the DPRK. Never cease to amaze, the Northern ones.

Seriously, the realization that they seem to fully believe in their hearts that we would not see right through the well-planned situations created and in every one of the places meant to impress us, huge places, completely devoid of visitors. So bizarre. So bizarre.

Isolation.

Quite sad, in a way. 25 million people prevented from participating in the daily life of planet Earth. Or even knowing that it exists.

It’s changing, though, albeit excruciatingly slowly. Through goods smuggled back in, (which is an act of heroism, surely). That spreading of knowledge must continue.

Ah, well, have a laugh.

Peace.

  1. Bizarre!! Surely someone’s idea of a joke. I couldn’t imagine that the Chinese would be stupid enough to go on a Nth Korean cruise.

      Well, it could well be a joke on the part of the producers… I admit to not checking it out via NK news or anything. As for the Chinese, I imagine word’ll spread. : )
