thanks heaps for the link. this is so awesome, i've always wanted to visit the DPRK but it's always been one of those trips that you liken to travelling to the moon - faraway and totally inaccessible. so i thought! helmut does have a disclaimer though that he can't divulge what all the pre-planning involved, that would be really interesting to know. i think you'd need a fair amount of gall to try it any way you get in regardless.
