Kumsusan Memorial Palace

Well although we might not exactly know what is going to happen regarding the body of the late General Kim Jong Il, one thing we do know is that the Kumsusan Memorial Palace, which is where President Kim Il Sung lies in state will be closed until the end of March. Now whilst this is a bit sad for those traveling to the country during the next 3 months! It is great to know that for the 100th birthday of Kim Il Sung we will at least be able to see what is to most tourists the highlight of any trip!

Many people keep asking if General Kim Jong Il will also be kept at the mausoleum. Personal opinion is no, but we will see what happens. In fact there is quite an interesting article about just this, that I will link to tomorrow!
