I’m still groggy from jet lag. Here are a couple more photos from the DMZ tour.
In this photo I see a barbed wire through the M with a flower at 1 end. Does that symbolise division and hope/peace?
Many people use the coin-op binoculars to look at NK. I did, too, twice. Lasts only 2 minutes per coin. The “village” is absolutely empty. It’s known as propaganda village. The buildings are empty shells. NK wants you to think life is normal there.
High barbed wire fences are everywhere in this area. Sign of old train station.
Bridge towards NK seen from near the station sign in previous photo. It has been restored and blocked off.
A replica of Joint Security Area entrance. Photo taken at 3rd infiltration tunnel. I was really looking forward to going to JSA but it didn’t happen. If I go to Korea again I will give it another try. One can visit DMZ every day but JSA is very limited and more intense.
DMZ and JSA tours are number one attractions. They (the tours) are highly structured and always full. So many tour buses.
At Dorasan train station again. Official entrance to the tracks for NK departures. Still waiting to be opened, though.
