White gloves, worn when opening the heavy doors in the International Friendship Exhibition, are placed on a table in Myohyangsan, North Korea (75 miles from Pyongyang). The exhibition halls contain the collection of gifts presented to Kim Jong Un and former leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il from various foreign dignitaries. Some of the gifts I saw inside today were given by figures like Stalin, Mao, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Fidel Castro, Tito, and Dennis Rodman. On assignment for @npr

We started the climb of Japan’s Mt. Fuji this afternoon. Now we’ll sleep until the 2am wake up call and finish the mass pilgrimage to the top to watch the sunrise. Hundreds of thousands of people climb this 12,388-foot mountain annually. Respectful of nature, and respectful of one another, the Japanese make it a sacred and shared ascent of Mt. Fuji. #onassignment for @natgeotravel

A lion’s paw print in the dirt in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro crater.
I spent the past ten days in Tanzania, a country I love and lived as an exchange student of Swahili language a long time ago. I couldn’t have imagined then that I’d go ever go back to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Arusha, Moshi, and the vast Serengeti #onassignment for @natgeoExpeditions #natgeoexpeditions. For some bts, please take a look at my Instagram story posts and IGTV posts this week.
