I watched part 1 now an the insight into "everyday's life" (as it is presented for the tourist group of course
) is really interesting, thanks for sharing!
During the past years I watched many documentaries and read reports about North Korea, because it is a very fascinating country. Creepy but fascinating. And the border reminds me of Germany before its reuninion.
But I feel like they are a bit over-dramatic sometimes in this video. It is not that difficult to visit North Korea, everybody can do it by booking tours from China. It's strange they did not know this.
They treat trourists very friendly (compared to their own people) because they want to pretend everything is great in North Korea. So even the food is quite good, because it's the best they have to offer. Not high class, but until now I had never read about it being as disgusting as they describe it in this video. I don't think they serve the same food the next day... maybe it's for the employees, how do they know? And the tea lady - how do they know she waits there for months? The tour guides surely don't tell you things like this. It is a shop for tourists of course, but most likely she has another job. She is well educated and so she won't just sit their and wait.
I can recommend Drew's story about his visit to North Korea
. What I liked about him is that he only tells about what he knows and sees, no assumptions. The facts are strange enough.
