Trainspotting

North Korea is famously one of the most closed off countries in the world, limiting the access of its citizens to most information from the outside world. Conversely, it also tries to maintain a tight grip on the image that it presents to the outside world to the point where it assigns “guides” to all outside tourists who come to visit the country. So it’s not often you get an unfettered look at the country, but AFP offers video it took of the country while riding the train from Dandong, China to the capital Pyongyang in North Korea.
