North Korea: Puzzling, fascinating
I'm probably not the only person who's curious about North Korea. Not just because of the news, but also because the gradual Wal-Martification of the rest of the world has made North Korea seem that much weirder. I recently read Guy Delisle's nifty Pyongyang, a graphic novel recounting the author's experiences working there, and today, Slate's "Today's Pictures" has a few tantalizing shots from North Korea. If you search on "Pyongyang" at Flickr, you can see some more glimpses into this frighteningly odd society.
