Just remeber that Nort Korea is Asia's version of Cuba. A communist tourist destination! The Chinise go there for the casions and stay because it reminds them of what China was like 30 years ago.

And if your a George Orwell fan see 1984 IRL!!!111

Sorry, had to break out the 111's for that.

"anyway, not everyone gets to be rational like me. "

I would go to North Korea to feed the starving children.

Why on earth would you want to go to North Korea?

"dudes who take their girlfriends to north korea are so hot"

hmmmm

It must be an age difference thing.

"Why on earth would you want to go to North Korea?"

Curiousity, mostly. North Korea has many curiousities that you couldn't find anywhere else: lots of roads, but no cars (since no one can afford one); half-finished skyscrapers that the government pretends do not exist, whose locatoin will not be told to you, but which can be seen from most points in Pyongyang; tour guides whose primary job is to spy on you; and political propaganda thicker than you could find anywhere else in the world.

Not to mention that the empty roads are to be used for airstrips in the event of a war. I so, want to go visit North Korea, its weirdness fascinates me to no end. My friend is in South Korea right now. I should force him to go.

They should adapt a slogan like: "Its like 1984 IRL!"

That sounds very much like the trip my mother & grandmother made to Russia in the 80s, complete with the "key lady" that sat at a desk at the end of the hotel hallway (each floor had one) that you turned your key in to when you left the hotel & retrieved it from when you returned.

They somehow managed to sneak out of town to visit relatives overnight, at the request of the relatives (since they were the ones likely to pay for it if caught)... I can't remember how they swung it - I think duplicate keys or something. Very 007ish of them, I thought at the time.
