For the most part, North Korea is shrouded in complete mystery to the general public. We speculate about how many people actually live there, how many starved during the famine of the late 90s, how many nuclear weapons they have pointed at various areas of the world, and so forth. But vey few are privileged to any real knowledge about […]
Air travel and sushi are two things we love, but don’t necessarily picture together. So it’s pretty neat that SushiAirways boldly mashes up both.
