If I Were Free Later This Month…

…I would totally go to the Arirang games in North Korea.


American tourists will have a rare opportunity this month to visit North Korea’s capital and see a mass sports festival. North Korea will allow United States passport holders to enter on visas from either Oct. 8 to 12 or Oct. 15 to 18 to go to the Arirang 2005 festival. Travelers will have to fly from Beijing to Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, on the country’s airline, Air Koryo, and then will be able to attend the games and see other parts of the country.
