National independance day in North Korea

DSC08232

9th september, PyongYang. The military parade held for the national independance days is ending, tanks, artillery and heavy vehicules already left the city. Troops are going to follow soon. Thousands of north koreans are now waiting for them along the main avenue, ready to salute them on their way back.

While policemen try to keep the avenue clear, a school orchestra, certainly from PyongYang, is playing several energic songs. The conductor is actually a member of the orchestra, who will give his place to another member at regular interval: in this way, there is no real hierarchy among the members, which reflects the idea of communism.
