It’s dusk in Pyongyang


I arrived that day, haven’t been to my hotel yet, but, following the Arch of Triumph, I have to see the TV tower, and the stone monument in front of it with its quote of the Great Leader.

It’s early April. I’ll still be in the country on the 15th, and I’m very lucky, because that’s Kim Il Song’s birthday, the most important holiday in the country.

These children are waiting to practice a performance for the April 15th celebration.

Kim Il Song, by the way, died in 1994 at the age of 82. His son, Great Leader Kim Jung-Il governs the country today.
