Just a simple little Kim Jong-il North Korean stamp.
Women getting ready for the Arirang Mass Games? Marching and in formation under the Juche Tower, DPRK, North Korea. Ray Cunningham gave me a better explanation of what is going on in these pictures, “Generally these are practices for holiday parades such as National Day 11 September or Party Day 10 October. This would probably be the National Day parade – I heard it but was kept away. There is always something going on in Kim Il-sung square or by the tower practicing for something. What is rarer is for the guides not to freak when you are in the middle of the practice. Love this one.”
The above picture is a crop and edit of my header pic, it also happens to be yesterday’s most viewed North Korea pic from my Flickr account.
