North Korean Photo of the Day

Here’s a picture from the time I was in North Korea. It’s a little bit of writing carved into the living stone of the glorious Mount Geumgang, mountain of 12,000 peaks. Actually, both North and South Koreans agree on that bit, so I assume it’s true.

They really have nothing better to do except terrorize the world...

The writing roughly translates into:

“Chosun (Korea /the Korean people are sometimes referred to as such in North Korea), be proud of the glorious time when you were able to to serve Comrade Kim Il Sung, the greatest in the 5000 years of our history (the entirety of Korean history), as your Great Leader!”

This particular piece of writing was carved on July 8th, 1994, the day Kim Il Sung died, so I guess it’s in his memory.
