Photo of the Day: North Korea Festival

North-Korea-festival The end is near! You have only until July 31 to enter our 2009 Dream Trip Contest for a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose. So far, we've had nearly 17,000 contenders. For inspiration for your own entry, read our take on a submission that caught our eye:

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."

Share your travel photos and memories in our 2009 Dream Trip Contest. You could be just a few clicks away from a $25,000 trip to anywhere you choose.
