I have met people here from Australia, Canada and England who have taken a trip to Pyongyang and returned to Japan unscathed. Whenever I hear about Americans(except Rodman) going there on the news, they are arrested and sentenced for "spying". Anybody know anyone that has been there?

Why is this unlikely?  If you're a celeb a trip to NK is guaranteed to get you lots of attention.

Anybody else think its strange that after Rodman visits their technology seems to increase greatly?
