For some reason the hermit nation of North Korea has always fascinated me---perhaps because as U.S. citizens---we really aren't allowed to go there, unless we get special permission.   And things are just very backwards and odd there in North Korea--one day they will wake up and realize communism does NOT work.   In the meantime, we get little glimpses into this very odd place on Earth.   I found this pic on line, and please do notice the heels the soldiers are wearing, NOT combat boots, but fairly fashionable spike heels.....

As I said----if things in North Korea weren't weird and scary enough, a photo taken last week shows female North Korean soldiers patrolling along the Yalu River wearing 4-inch platform heels! Things that make you go hmmmm.  But the soldiers are kinda cute in an odd way, eh????... (BusinessInsider)
