North Korea travelogue

A rare travelogue of North Korea by Austrians who surprised the "Korean International Tourist Company" by entering the country from Russia by train. This allowed them to see a bit more of the country than the official tour permits. Tourists are otherwise required to be accompanied by two guides and a driver by all times, can visit only standard tourist sites where the regime goes to great pains to make an idyllic impression, and the itinerary has to be planned in advance.

The North Korea part of the travelogue, with many pictures, starts here.
