An interesting character in North Korea

I don’t have any story behind the guy in the picture below. We were at the cemetery for North Korea’s martyrs on the anniversary of Kim Il Sung’s birth, which was like being at Arlington on July 4th. As you can see behind him, columns and columns of soldiers paid respect from before we arrived until after we left.

As for him, I couldn’t tell if he held authority or if he would have been seen as dressed respectfully or what there. I thought he looked sharp and couldn’t resist taking his picture. Click on the picture for a larger version or email me for a higher resolution version.
