Favorite Moments in North Korea

Joshua Spodek helps rekindle memories from our trip to North Korea with the following posts:

Toward the end of our week in North Korea I asked all my travel group-mates what they considered their favorite moment of our trip and why.

Part 2, Part 3

My favorite moment was learning that the sailor who led the tour of the USS Pueblo was a member of the original boarding party of the ship. I felt he had communicated a message to take what we had learned there and use it to help promote peace, a different message than most of the government-promoted messages. Learning his role made the message feel more genuine – Joshua Spodek

    Too bad you couldn’t slot the bastard.

    They beat and tortured the US sailors for about a year, killing one.

    • You can live in the past but I like to believe that my actions in the DPRK as a visitor went a long way in shattering their propaganda of what an American is and represents.
