Welcome to North Korea

Scenes from the DPRKI can recommend this fascinating video (apparently produced in the Netherlands) about the DPRK, entitled “Welcome to North Korea”.

It’s long — almost an hour — but every minute is worth watching. A tour of North Korea is the closest anyone can come to visiting an alien civilization.

We’re in Year 89 of the Juche calendar — and counting.

Also check out this 2-minute clip of a NK torchlight rally that makes Albert Speer's Nuremburg rally look like a junior high pep assembly. It just reeks of progressivism.

And if you're bored trying to puzzle out the Gilani asphalt slab o' doom, check out the Google Earth/Google Maps "Placemarks" collection here. Lots of odd NK things to look at from space. That "tall tower in the middle of nowhere", for instance - it sure is both of those things.

Wally, I think that torchlight parade must be part of what those children were practicing for in the big video -- the date is about right for it.

It's one of the most impressive feats of choreography I've ever seen.
