雖然才過幾個月,但我對於八月的記憶已經萎縮到那一兩天的北京,根本已經忘了當初在朝鮮幹嘛,只能看著照片和筆記來喚醒殘留在腦海中的一點記憶。

那是在朝鮮的最後一天,原本以為離開羊角島後就要直接去搭火車回祖國了,整個晚上都在藏匿照片,將手機照片做HA,備份了三份- 內建相簿, 垃圾桶和 APP內,又怕檢查時會被海關打開相機,把只拍半卷的底片卷了卷藏在行李箱深處。

卻萬萬沒想到那一天是朝鮮的重要節日- 8/25先軍節,廣場上的慶祝活動,只能可惜的只能用手機紀錄。

Pyongyang Subway – North Korea

지하철,

對我而言,大眾交通,是個能夠最真實的感受到城市氛圍和體驗的當地生活的地方之一。每次到了新的國家和城市,總會想要去感受一下這最真實的味道。

平壤,與其他國家最不同的是,除了政府官員外,一般人是沒有辦法能夠擁有私家車的,腳踏車和大眾交通,變成了北韓百姓在通勤上的選擇。朝鮮常見的大眾交通工具不外乎是公車、電車和地下鐵。平壤地下鐵,也是唯一能夠開放給外地民眾搭乘的大眾交通方式。

這幾年誤打誤撞地去了五次南韓,大概除了濟州島,其他都走遍了.只是覺得機票便宜,語言通,又有朋友,是個可以去放鬆的地方.南韓有個觀光客行程,是去DMZ區38度線,以前曾經想說,有天不知道在首爾能幹嘛時,也能去走走.

但我從來沒想過,第一次來到DMZ區,卻是從北邊的朝鲜. Continue reading “Standing on the other side – North Korea”

Beijing to Pyongyang – North Korea

8/21 trip to Pyongyang 平壤

Negative0-02-00(1).jpg

It has been a week since I came back from the trip to Beijing and North Korea. Those films I took already printed out. This trip was a beautiful and amazing dream. I still couldn’t believe, even myself, that I was there.

All my friends and family thought it’s way too dangerous to visit there. These kinda words always made me worried and tried to “escape” from my own trip. Actually, I almost cancelled this trip. In the morning on 8/21, I was still in bed saying that I want to stay in Beijing instead, why am I leaving to there. 

However, I already paid. 2500 CNY is still a certain amount of money.lol In the end, I still jumped on the taxi to Beijing main station and headed to DPRK.

During works, I always try to squeeze in some time to travel. Accidently, I will have a gap week – 9 days free. Turkey, Russia and Egypt are the top 3 countries on my wish list . However, those places definitely need more than 9 days.

One night I was in the karaoke with friends, and a song called Strangler in the North (飄向北方) from LeeHom was playing.  How about Beijing ? I do miss my friend there. After talking to him, I booked the ticket right away.
