Inside North Korea..⛔ Don't be fooled by the glitz and glam of the inside of this restaurant, outside was totally opposite which is why they don't allow us to film it..
So this was one of the meals we were given, we are not allowed to choose anything. Every meal was already set and prepared. The most interesting meal was when we were served dog soup, if you've never tried dog, all I can say it tasted a bit like chewy lamb..
I think I found the food the hardest here, I didn't know half the dishes, didn't know what meat I was eating, but I had no option..eat or starve..
I was being rather nice in the video and pretended I liked the food as the staff were watching me and the last place I want to get in trouble is here. The last guy who upset this country was called
Otto Frederick Warmbier and he was arrested, tortured, sent back to the US in a vegetative state and was dead a few days later..the lady you see at the start of the video in black was the government guide, she was one of 2 guides who followed us everywhere to monitor our behavior, as soon as I got my camera out she rushed over to monitor what I was doing so I kept the video short and positive to make sure they're happy.
It's very hard to be realistic and speak the truth in this country, all I can compare it to is being in a prison, you're locked up at night and not allowed to leave the hotel, you do as they say, eat what they make, and if you step out of line, then you will bear the repercussions. Xx
