The pre-tour meeting…

Today there was only one thing on my agenda. At 14:00 I was expected at the pre-tour meeting at the office of Koryo Tours in Beijing, in preparation of the departure to the DPRK the next day… :-)

 

Those of you who would like to get a good idea about travel in the DPRK could read these pages:

We were told that there would exceptionally be two flights from Beijing to Pyongyang tomorrow, as there would be in international Taekwondo competition in Pyongyang, so many foreign teams would travel to Pyongyang on the same day, too… We would be on the first flight, which would leave at 12:00 instead of 13:00 from Terminal 2 of Beijing Capital Airport…

 

In the evening I have been rearranging my luggage. I have left some things behind in Beijing, such as my camcorder, microphone, video tripod, cables, etc… Apparently, taking a camcorder into the DPK is not really a problem anymore, but it’s still more sensitive than a normal camera, and I didn’t really see much use for it, so I decided to leave it in Beijing, also in order to save some weight…

 

One more night in China, and then the big day! :-)
