Straying into North Korea

This is the interior of the UN Command Military Armistice Commission Conference Building (T2), straddling the border of the two Koreas.  The border runs down the length of this conference table, with the microphone and UN flag at the exact boundary.  I'm taking this photo from North Korea, on the right side of the table -- tourists visiting can wander through the building as they like.

The Republic of (South) Korea soldier here is holding an aggressive Tae Kwon Do stance, and wears dark Ray Bans to avoid conveying unintended facial expressions to soldiers on the other side.
