Myohyangsan and "The International Friendship Exibition"

Located in a beautiful mountain area 2 hous drive north east of the capital. The "International Friendship Exibition" is basically where hundres of thousands of gifts to Kim Il Sung and Kim Jung Il from outside DPRK are on display or stored. (some REALLY lavish and expencive gifts but most of them are crap from obscure organisations and companies. Many of them non-existing.) Unfortunately photography inside is strictly forbidden. I noticed a striking lack of interest from the koreans for the Kim Jung Il pavillion compared to that of the Eternal President and Great Leader...
