North Korea - Feburary 2012
In Feburary I returned to North Korea. Kim Jong-il had just died and his youngest son, Kim Jong-un, had taken power. Koreans where still in their 100 days of mourning and Kim Jong-ils birthday was coming. Definitely an interesting time to visit.
Visiting in Feburary was also interesting, as the weather was quite cold. Pyongyang seemed to have power all the time, but outside the city the power was out quite often and hot water was scheduled for an hour in the morning at the hotels. It definitely made for some chilly dinners. Quite the contast from my previous trip in September when the climate much more mild and no power outages.
