New York Philharmonic Orchestra in Pyongyang, North Korea

The mysterious shroud which protects North Korea from outsiders has been revealed a little more in recent days. By little I mean not really at all. However, the audio slide show created by Reuters photojournalist David Gray provides some interesting comments (both in photos and text) and personal insight into life and facade of the main city of Pyongyang. Click on the following link to view his story, Perceptions of North Korea.

One day I would absolutely love to go to North Korea as a 'free tourist' without the prying eyes of the state watching one's every move. "Be careful what you wish for" goes the saying -- but it seems that this country has not yet fully given up its secrets, both wonderful and horrific.
