North Korea

What are you doing In The Know Traveler? You have a travel page dedicated to one of the most curious places on earth with a long list of human rights violations, poverty and military blah blah.

I am not sure I would go out of my way to make this trip to walk around a conference desk but it may be a cheap and easy way to have a North Korean story to tell.
