TheRussianLord: the guy who took the pictures studied Journalism so he must know something about taking pics and also about choosing what to publish.
Tails: yeah, they took the Trans-Siberan and went into the DPRK through Vladivostok. That is a usual route for North Koreans, but very rare for foreign travellers.
RedComissar: the president of the KFA is Alejandro Cao de Benos from Catalonia, but it is an international organization and all its members have the same rights. North Koreans make no differences because of nationality.
If someone wants me to translate something by Juan (the guy who took the pics) I will gladly do it. His reports are very interesting. I had the chance to speak to him face to face some time ago and he was reall well informed about the DPRK.
Is it still possible to travel through this route?
I don't know for sure, comrade sta8oukos: I'm trying to find out because I would be interested in travelling that way when I go to the DPRK.
I used to think that travelling by train was forbidden for foreigners and that the only way to the DPRK for us was by airplane from Beijing or Vladivostok. But recently I found some info that said just the opposite thing, so now I can't be sure about the right answer.
I will let you know when I get more information!
Awesome,great pictures,North Korea really looking like paradise.
this is what we want for the world
In the Soviet Union you destroy free-market, In America free-market destroys you
sta8oukos: according to the blog itself, after the trip, they received an email that the possibility no longer exists.
Autodeterminacio: people can still take the train from China. The one from Russia is the one that the guys from the blog took, which wasn't really intended for tourism:
