Great mlewan 2006-04-22 6:27

I love this one. The great leader in the background smiles happily, even though he is the person with least attention here, with you being number one, the cameraman number two, and the couple number three.

Do you know what kind of electronic equipment they have? Do they import foreign electronics, so wealthy people can buy them, or do they try to make everything themselves. Juche!

Default To mlewan: North Korea electronics

Hi Magnus. Thanks for the critique. The only electronic equipment I saw in North Korea was imported - and it's all used by government departments. The cameraman in this picture would have been employed by some government department (maybe the Department of Wedding Photos or something like that) because there are no private businesses in North Korea. There are no wealthy people either (except the Great Leader!) and I did not see any 'ordinary' people with even the most basic camera whilst I was there. So I guess that's why we don't have any TE contributors from North Korea (and the fact they can't access the Internet of course). Cheers . . . David

That makes sense. I heard that they were experimenting with thinking about considering perhaps having some private enterprises in some special economic zones like in China, but if you didn't hear about it there last autumn, I suppose it was postponed.
