FRIEND RETURNED FROM ASIA A WEEK AGO (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by CatFan @, Green Country, USA, Sunday, September 10, 2017, 22:09 @ chazzz

She went to Beijing first, then to Pyongyang. Her photo album on Facebook is interesting to view and her comments are enlightening.

NK maintains international visitor hotels in top condition. She was assigned a "tour guide" who went everywhere with her. He was polite, but did not interact,only observed. Roads outside the two largest cities are as primitive as the rural farm roads in the US. They are paved with poor quality material that requires repair after each heavy storm. Locals come out and patch holes with rock fill and surface patches all done with hand tools.

She wanted to take something to her hosts, but discovered that the only souvenir like items available were stamp sets from the stamp museum. Little traffic on major roads unlike China where it is like south California.
