Joint Security Area

Sicher ein Must-See bei einem Aufenthalt in Korea: die DMZ (demilitarized area).

Ich hatte mir ja eigentlich vorgenommen bevor ich an die Grenze fahre noch einmal “JSA-Joint Security Area” zu schauen, weil es schon lang lang her ist, dass ich den Film gesehn hab, aber gut, jetzt wirds nix mehr. Morgen gehts an die Grenze zu Nordkorea.


Was es zu beachten gilt:

From the South, a strict dress code applies for all visitors: “faddish, extreme, torn, tattered, frayed, overly provocative or otherwise inappropriate” clothing is not allowed. Sports clothes (incl. tracksuits), military clothing, oversized clothing, sheer clothing, sleeveless shirts/tops, tank tops, anything that bares the midriff or the buttocks, and flip flop-type sandals are specifically banned; clean jeans with a clean T-shirt, on the other hand, are fine. The proclaimed purpose is twofold: one to make sure scruffy hippies don’t end up on North Korea’s propaganda posters, and the other to make sure ladies in miniskirts and high heels don’t trip and fall if somebody starts shooting.

Wie gut, dass ich noch letztens beim Frisör war. Den scruffy hippie hätten die wohl nicht passieren lassen.
