North Korean Friends Enjoying Ice Cream

A special moment in Pyongyang, this photo was taken during the North Korean National Day (September 9th) in one of the cities many parks. Families gathered for song, food, dance, and even volleyball. Here two old ladies share a smile and ice cream, watching in delight as a performer dances to traditional Korean music. The whole scene was rather contrary to the common image of this closed off country. One thing is for sure, these friends are loving their ice cream.
