North Korea recently lifted the ban for American travelers, but it is still not easy to get there. Once one arrives, the restrictions placed on tourists by the Party make for exasperating, yet surprisingly rewarding experiences. Dick Gauthier will take participants north of the 38th parallel, into the “Hermit Kingdom,” presenting recent history, the current political situation and an engaging firsthand glimpse into the everyday lives of North Korean people.
