Thank you, Dazzling

That's an extremely interesting video.
According to Frederik himself, he and the President of Korea personally like eachother a lot. - That of course is something that delights Danish commerce. Not least in connection with this visit.

An article from Jyllands Posten about M&F's visit to the demarkationline between North and South Korea.
Frederik og Mary i Nordkorea

For those who are not familiar with what is going on there:

A building called T-1 is placed across the demarkation line and here representatives from North Korea occasionally meet representatives from UN, South Korea and USA.
The windows in the building are dirty because they can't even agree on who should clean the windows.
Even during meetings inside the building people are on guard because there have been attempts to drag people across the line into North Korea.

Danish officers stationed in Korea explained the situation to M&F, who had been instructed not to make any sudden gestures that might provoke a reaction from the North Korean soldiers, who were watching them closely and also taking pictures.
An American officer remarked dryly: "The pictures are probably on Kim Jong-un's table before nightfall".

On the way back from the border at Panmunjom, Mary made it clear that the experience had left a deep impression on her. There is no mentioning of what she said.

One of the Danish ministers get poked a bit in this article. Jyllands Posten is a liberal paper in the old definition of the word, I.e. right wing. The Minister, Ole Sohn, was chairman of the Danish Communist Party some 20 years ago, until he saw the light.
In that capacity he visited the Soviet Union and also hugged his good friend Erich Honecker. I don't know if he visited North Korea back then but it's possible.
The article mentions that he remained silent during the tour at the border...

it seems risqué to me to send them to such a delicate area, both from a safety point of view and also from a diplomatic one.
i wonder what the aim of the visit to the border was exactly.
nevertheless, it must have been a very interesting experience. it also shocked me how relaxed they and their party of companions seemed to be in such a high risk zone.

A video from TV2 from the conference barrack on the demarkation line. http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/article.php/...nordkorea.html
The zone between the two countries is litterally packed with mines and unexploded ammunition.
Mary talks about her impression about halfway into the video: "I think it's a very indescribable feeling you get. It stirs your stomach. There is a lot of tension (*) in the air, which is a bit difficult to describe, but it's strange to think that in this globalized world that such an isolated country exists and that's sad".
The Danish officer in green camuflage who is explaining the situation to the jounalist is the naval officer from the War Memorial.

(*) A funny detail. She pronounced the word "tension" in Danish, even though that word doesn't exist in Danish. The Danish word is "spænding". Apart from this little slip, everything she said was perfectly correct, also grammatically.

An article and gallery from BT of M&F at an exhibition called: Muses.
Mary og Frederik kigger på damer i Korea - Mode & skønhed | www.bt.dk

It's the designer Peter Jensen, who is behind this.

The exhibition is, and I quote the article:
Muses is a retrospective journey into a man's subconsiousness, all the way into the mind, where dreams and urges are materialised. As such Muses is a tribute to all women, real as well as fictitious, who have inspired the designer Peter Jensen throughout his work and over eighteen collections.

- (By now most men have gone blank in the head, including Frederik. Judging from Frederik, he looks to me like any other man who by accident have been dragged into a fashion store and who is now passing time while his wife is browsing. )

Mary on the other hand was very enthusiastic, says the article.

Some will not consider the obvious of the real situation. They will just jump to a conclusion of what "they want" it to be to demean someone. Happens all the time. It is more fun to nit pick everything apart and make snide comments.

Yes a very happy wedding anniversary to Frederik and Mary!
I hope they had time to celebrate it a little bit though they have been busy all day.

According to this video with journalist Anna Johansen from Billed Bladet, Frederik in front of 800 people began his speech today by thanking his wife for 8 wonderful years

That's so sweet.
With eight years and four kids behind them, it can definitely be said the marriage has been a success.

That's a nice touch. I'm sure it was appreciated, also by the crowd.

Thank you for the clip, Sungmi
and congratulations on your first post.

I see you are from South Korea, perhaps you can tell us a bit about the large drum from the first day of M&F's visit?
