Morning Melody in Pyongyang City

At 6:00am every morning, there is an eerie yet surreal melody that plays in a corner somewhere in the vast concrete jungle of Pyongyang city. The whole scene of looking out of the window to this gorgeous view of a Pyongyang sunrise listening to the tune is an indescribable feeling through words.

If you are wondering where this melody comes from, it is in fact a tune that is played at the Pyongyang Railway Station daily. It can be heard throughout the entire city because Pyongyang is extremely quiet and clear of noise pollution especially at this hour. The tune is called "Where are you dear General" and was written by Kim Jong-il himself.

Please note that the sounds from this video is original and recorded from my room window while enjoying the sunrise.

#4 I wonder 2 things :

1. Are North Korea people brainwashed and really believe all that bullsh*t about their leader? Or they are not and just do what they do, talk what they talk and pretend everything just so they dont get imprisoned/killed?

2. Are there any nutjobs out there that actually believe that its just a conspiracy and that Kim Long Dong is good and the country is doing fine and the world is hiding it ? :D

One thing is certain: North Korea sure hates America >:)

#6 I have a friend who was born in N.Korea but was brought to the US as a child by his parents who managed to escape into S.Korea and then was able to travel to the US. He is now a U.S.Navy Captain with 20 years service and he says the people in the North know nothing but what their leaders allow them to know about the outside world. All his family and relatives that were left behind are lost to him and that is very sad.

They also have speakers in the public parks, some nasal high pitched woman voice repeating the parkrules every 10 minutes. No cameras and no telephones allowed. recording someting can cause your telephone to be taken by police.
