North Korea is in the news again, with the Hermit Kingdom going head-to-head with the United States about when, how, and with whom representatives of the isolated country will talk about its newly minted nuclear program.
Dream Trip entrant ernestinsitka gives us this reminder that in addition to the country's scary diplomacy, there are the equally disquieting, eerie performances of casts of thousands, known as mass games.
"While on a short trip to North Korea, our small group attended the annual Arirang festival in the country's largest stadium," ernestinsitka writes in the Dream Trip entry "Arirang." "It was spectacular."
