Picture of the Week: Looking into the North

Looking into North Korea.

Looking into North Korea.

It was a special part of the DMZ Korea. Looking into the North. Of course that is North Korea that I am talking about. While you could only see into a little bit into the country, it was still fascinating to gaze upon a local village. The villagers were farming and operating like it was a place time forgot.

There were no roads, no modern technology of any sort and the land you could see was completely bare as the trees were all knocked down, to be used as warmth in the cold winter months. We were fortunate to be on the tour on a clear day, so we could have a clear view of the mighty Han River that separates the two countries and spy into the neighbours across the river.
