The British student who wants you to study in North Korea

RAEL’S COMMENT:
Wonderful! If you wish to have holidays in another country, go to North Korea! That’s the way to destroy the effects of the mega-rich owned medias promoting war!

 

North Korea frightens the world with its missile tests and threats of pre-emptive nuclear strikes. This is precisely why a British student thinks it’s time to try making friends with North Koreans – the people who live there – or at least to get to know them better, writes the BBC’s Eleanor Dunn.

« We’re so quick to label North Korea as ‘forbidden’, ‘closed’, ‘crazy’, ‘suffering’ – but I want to take away that barrier we’ve created, just for a minute, and shed light on North Korea at a human level, » says 24-year-old Benjamin Griffin.

Before his first visit four years ago his knowledge of the country had been limited to « one documentary and some YouTube clips ». So the package holiday with Juche Travel Services (JTS), an officially approved tourism agency, was an eye-opener.

« When I first saw Pyongyang in 2013, I was expecting an army of soldiers everywhere I went. It was as if I hadn’t seen them as real people, » he says.

In fact he saw people walking to work, shopping, eating, dancing in the park. Somehow normal life seemed surprising.

« The truth is, in the everyday life of a Pyongyang citizen, they’re not worried about how best to defeat US imperialism or how evil capitalism is. They care about, ‘Where am I going to go shopping today? Where am I in my job? Is my daughter going to get married?' »

The following year, as a 21-year-old, he went back to volunteer as an English teacher at Pyongyang’s tourism college.
