It has been a wet dream for me for a long time to go to North Korea, so when the opportunity came up I went for it.

It might come as a surprise, but it is neither impossible or difficult to go to North Korea… just very expensive and you have to be part of a group tour, which will be supervised by no less than three North Korean guides all the time.

The main attraction for my trip was the Mass Games. An insanely coordinated performance done by thousands of dancers, acrobats, kids and soldiers doing synchronized things. This show is, of course, put on in the biggest stadium in world (space for 150,000 spectators… the Bird’s Nest in Beijing only had space for 90,000 during the Olympics), which lies in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.

So this is a small taste of it.

Note the ever changing background. It is all man-made by 20,000 people with colored plates. Impressive!
