The Face of a country rarely seen

By now, regular readers have discovered that I enjoy many of the interesting sites Kim Komando sends in her newsletter. Another recent one featured a link to North Korea. As she describes it:

The real North Korea
One of the things I like most about the Internet is the ability to see new things. Since I love to travel, I often look at pictures of different countries. That's how I came across today's Cool Site. It's a photographic tour of North Korea. In case you're not up on geography, North Korea is a Communist country. It is radically different from its high-tech neighbor, South Korea.

The photos were taken by a Russian Webmaster. He took photos of forbidden subjects. That is to say, he took photos that contradict those published by the government.

The photos paint a bleak picture of life. The sense of isolation is overwhelming. Photos usually make me want to visit a place. In this case, I'm not sure I'd go there, but the photos sure make me glad to live in America!


End of quote.
