Kimchi, anyone?

Spotted in Lygon Street on Friday afternoon: a delegation of half a dozen well-dressed middle-aged North Koreans, complete with Kim Il Sung badges. Unable to resist my curiousity, I started speaking to one in the group who spoke English. They seemed like a friendly bunch, but unfortunately I was unable to find out what brought them to Melbourne (presumably it wasn't the Pong Su). Any ideas?

No idea, but from your accounts they must be pretty senior. I'd be interested for you to blog a bit more about their impressions Lygon St.

Ari, do you think it was as foreign for them as your visit to NK was to you?
