Nicholas D. Kristof in North Korea

The New York Times has been posting a video blog of Nicholoas Kristof's trip to North Korea. It appears that the blog is intended to show what normal life is like in North Korea, but it gives you the feeling that he is being very careful about what he says (while he's in the country). I find the videos fascinating. What a strange place. It was particularly interesting to hear Kristof talk about the prevalence of elaborate monuments in the city.
