North Korea

North Korea is certainly one of the most unique countries I’ve ever visited. With some of the strictest laws on earth being forced upon its citizens this country has been effectively isolated from the modern world for decades. As a result this is probably the one place in the world that has remained independent of western influences and stuck to their own traditions and history. This is a country where most of the natives truly have no idea what the rest of the world is like. In these days there is no other country on earth like it. With the recent death of Kim Jong Il there has certainly a lot of tension in the country and the immediate and long term future is anyone’s guess.
