Last day a DJ saved my life in Pyongyang - North Korea

Outside the Children palace, i had the surprise to see a giant bal. Hundreds of young women an men dancing on a north korean music, surrounded by local buildings.

I saw that many men danced together, while many girls were free...

I asked why to the guide, he answered : "they are shy, it is the first time they come to dance! In France, boys and girls dance together the first time they meet each other?".

 

Devant le Palais des Enfants, un bal geant avec pour decor l'architecture de Pyongyang. Des centaines de garçons et de filles, etudiants, ouvriers, dansaient sur des chansons nord coreennes.

De nombreux garçons dansaient entre eux alors que beaucoup de filles etaient seules. Je demandais pourquoi à mon guide, il me repondit: "c'est leur premier bal, ils sont timides..en France, les filles et les garçons dansent ensemble lors de leur premiere rencontre?"....
