Personal highlights

  1. Jong Suk Textile Mill: mid-size factory inside Pyongyang
  2. Work: we saw just a few of allegedly 7,000 employees
  3. Guide: a woman explaining the history, not so informative
  4. My visit: only a short walk through the machines
  5. My experience: nothing special, just a little insight
