Skateboarding - Visualtraveling - East Meets West Berlin and 'Kim Il-Sung's Birthday Party'

these two are shorter than those posted the last month of Sundays.

Traveling to the Hermit Kingdom is already bizarre enough, but when we heard that North Korea would be celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the Great Leader & eternal president, Kim Il-sung, there was no way to let such an epic birthday party slip through our hands.

Laurence Keefe, Kirill Korobkov and I flew over to Pyongyang for two days to witness the madness. While skateboarding within the DPRK was our main intention, it was overshadowed by the celebrations & the 'no sliding' anywhere rule.

The three minute clip portrays a small insight into North Korea from the 15th of April 2012.
