On my recent visit to South Korea I was fortunate enough to tour along the Demilitarised Zone in South Korea. At Imjingak where the Freedom Bridge is located there are millions of prayer ribbons tied to the fence which I’m told have messages of hope, dreams and wishes for unification between North and South Korea.
Even though I couldn’t read a word of what was written on them, I know they carry with them a small message of hope that one day we might all be able to just get along.
Great photo! I went to the DMZ a couple of months ago… but from the other side. There were no prayer ribbons at the North Korean fence. Just bored soldiers smoking cigarettes and thinking good thoughts about the Dear Leader 🙂
what an incredible sight that must have been… I just finished reading Camp 14, an account of the only escaped prisoner from a North Korean labour camp – who was born and raised on the camp. The DMZ is certainly not depicted in the same way as your photo, at least from the other side… lol
