I'm always interested by photographs of the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, even if most of them look pretty much the same. Panmunjom has become a regular stop on the tourist trail - Wikitravel has a handy list of the sights to tick off as you're passing through, as well as a guide to DMZ etiquette. As they stand a few feet apart, the soldiers from either side and the curious onlookers create a strange theatrical performance. We look at them, and they look at us, and we look at them looking at us, and the years go by.
