See the first Instagram pictures from North Korea



The strange world of North Korea is now officially available on Instagram--to non-residents of course. Jean Lee, an Associated Press reporter based in Seoul and Pyongyang, sent out what is believed to be the first Instagram picture from North Korea on Monday. The photo came after mobile operator Koryolink opened its mobile data services (to foreigners) last week, the Next Web reported.





Locals aren't allowed to use the service, but an Associated Press reporter may have made history.




There more pictures itf you click on his instagram link Instagram

This is of course really interesting and this means that probable we are going to see more pictures soon. It is of course really sad that this service is only allowed for foreigners. Or will it be taken down once they find out?

North Korea widens 3G coverage for outsiders

This is quite strange as they are always very protective about everything. They must know people will start taking pictures.

Those pictures are as rare as pictures of my wife doing the dishes.

I am just very surprised and at the same time exited that we are going to see more of this country now for as long as they permit this of course. I get a feeling that they will regret this soon.

These are great pictures in time.

If you do the dishes once in awhile your wife can also catch a rare glimpse of history...


Peace

I prefer this collection of pictures from north korea

You know, anyone can visit N.K. if they want? Its not a completely locked up country like most people think, but you are only restricted to certain "tourist" areas, unless you travel with a guide.
You just need to be approved for a visa, like pretty much every other country.

There;s a million photos and documentaries that take place inside NK. I don't understand what is so special about this? It's like taking pictures of Flordia and calling it special.

Show something never shown before. that is worth seeing or notable in NK and it'll have value.

I don't agree with you. Pictures, almost live taken and posted has never been done but this is now possible due to the new G3 network. Yes we saw documentaries and some pictures, but this is a whole new era for North Korea. Imagine if something would happen there considering recent events, we have now more live access and that is what this is about

I think that "North" Korea is justifiably nervous when it comes to openness. America spys on every country every chance it gets. North Korea in particular. We own the bottom half... you think thats some kind of sign?

How would you feel above the (whatever) parallel if you witnessed North and South Vietnam or all the other "interventions" currently underway?


articles.latimes.com...

U.S. officials downplay their interest in Egan, but they don't deny that they are hungry for insight on a nuclear armed nation that is possibly the world's toughest to spy on, a virtual black hole for most intelligence agencies.

I think NK captured a American "spy boat" and have been portraying it since 1951 if I am not mistaken


south and north haven't signed any form of "peace documents" since the end of ww2. (really scary, its like NK are completely alone now with their own "ideology")
but times changes when the old leaders get too old and die so the younger family member can step up and blow some dust off from old a-bomb projects


instagram in NK is very interesting !

take care and thanks for the news

It is the Ryugyong Hotel. An interesting story in itself. Would I ever stay there? Not a hope! Some places are just begging to be a disaster movie.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

They will still have handlers preventing folks from taking pictures of anything that the government doesn't want seen, so its not like this is going to change much. Also, I'll bet you that the coverage is only in areas that paint a “pretty picture” that their government wants to portray.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

That's great news about the extended 3G coverage.

Now we will be able to see exactly what we are shown by official government escorts all the fuss is about....hopefully?

They must have opened the Buzz-tie on the 3 generators that they currently have to run the entire country.

Nothing beats load-sharing to maximise power usage
..............



Awesome stuff

No probs. I guess with the little amount of info we have about NK, it's inevitable that we will all want to share what we do know about the place.

Not trying to rain on your parade but it is almost exactly like Chernobyl, in terms of communist architecture. It's not the feeling it's the look
