Photo of the Day: Panmunjom

The border between North and South Korea at Panmunjom, the small village where the armistice was signed in 1953. The small concrete line running between the two blue buildings is the border itself. Two South Korean soldiers watch from the corners of the UN buildings while a North Korean guard is visible in the middle left. The large building in the center of the photo on the North Korean side is the site of the original signing.

Photo taken July 26th 2011, one day before the anniversary of the treaty signing.
