To help you with your Sunday hangover, here’s another entry that’s easy on your minds! Just a sprinkling of words hidden between a wealth of snaps that depict everyday life in North Korea. I found a warm and friendly side to the DPRK that I didn’t expect, and that you certainly won’t see in the Western press. Enjoy!
