Reunion With a Friend

One of the best things about returning to North Korea was meeting up with the friends I made on my first visit.  Below I get a hug from one of the singing waitresses that I danced with during the 2011 Ultimate Frisbee Tournament.  I suppose I made a great impression during my first visit – that is one hell of a close hug, and I even got a kiss on the cheek when we made our goodbyes!


But of course I’m in trouble now, whenever my girlfriend is upset with me she points out these pictures and reminds me that “I know who your secret North Korean girlfriend is” and that “I know the real reason why you like going to North Korea” !

Well, I actually don’t know this girl’s name, but she is a real sweetheart, and if you ever pass through Pyongyang with a stop at the  lamb BBQ restaurant on your itinerary, make sure to say hi to her for me – and be ready to dance!
