    Every year, lots of people await June, as the start of summer means a lot of good things – vacations for students, beach parties, ice cream, and plenty of holidays. The summer heat also brings its problems, so everyone needs to double their efforts to have loads of fun while keeping cool!

    People in Pyongyang seem to be quite equipped when it comes to surviving the dog days: pools and water parks are open and hosting a lot of North Koreans who try to escape the hot weather!
