Duty free at Beijing Airport is the must-see before a flight to North Korea.

The elite of North Korean society stock up, carrying away absurd quantities of cigarettes and alcohol. I felt puny with only four cartons for gifts.

    Ah! Thought you will keep the systematic style of the trip report like your Iran and Ireland series…now you obviously got back to old road ” the sporadic style” 🙁 Would be nice if you had a small introduction and an outline of the installment

  • @Shannon – let me make it up to you over the weekend. I really exhausted myself the past few weeks but wanted to at least get started with some warm-up posts this week.
