Admiring the Irish coastline, Kim-Jong style

Propaganda posters illustrating the Kim dictators are fascinating.

One of the most hilarious features is that the Kims can often be seen posing in front of the most incredibly breathtaking scenery, but pointing out to the opposite direction – as if what their visionary eyes could see was even more spectacular.

I took this photo in the streets of Pyongyang in October 2014.

I have tried to do the same at the Irish coastline, at the Cliffs of Moher.

Unfortunately I obviously don’t have what it takes to be a totalitarian kimjongilist leader: just a minute before taking the photo I got soaked by the most nasty cold and windy rain. This wouldn’t happen to Kim Jong-il, would it?
