      Travel in North Korea: Off the Beaten Path

      North Korea is one of the most secretive and remote locations on earth, visited by few Americans. In Jonathan Tetzlaff’s travels, he visited not only the capital, Pyongyang, but also remote locations in the central and northern portions of North Korea (along the border with China).
      Jonathan is one of the few Americans to view the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) – one of the most heavily-militarized borders in the world – from the northern side. Other destinations included Chongjin, for decades a city closed to all visitors. Opened only a short time before his trip, security in Chongin was very tight.
      Jonathan will discuss his travel, varied accommodations and unexpected experiences. Jonathan will also touch on tensions between the US and North Korea, recent advances in North Korean nuclear technology, and the regional and global consequences if war were to break out.
      This event requires no tickets or reservations and is open to the public. The presentation will last approximately 45 minutes with ample time for Q&A. If you have questions, please contact Jonathan Tetzlaff (jctetzlaff@yahoo.com). Information is also available at: https://olliasheville.com/special-programs.
