North Korea, Vietnam and China - The Communist Tour

With a great deal of difficulty I have managed to pick out a handful of pictures that show the highlights of my recent travels to North Korea, Vietnam and China. Enjoy the pictures and watch this space for more stories from my travels.

Kim - I love these pictures! Thanks for sharing with us and look forward to hearing more!

@ Shannon: Airang was spectacular - nearly a cast of 100,000 and an entire industry... more to come

@ SA Expats & Laura: I'm looking forward to sharing it, but the problem is what to leave out.

What perfect timing to be there and catch the big event. They may be impoverished but they still know how to put on a good show. Great stuff - thanks for sharing Kim!!!
