To go with NKorea-SKorea-military-anniversary-grass,FEATURE by Giles Hewitt In a photo taken on July 25, 2013 workers tend to grass on a lawn at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun mausoleum in Pyongyang. At first glance it seems like a task worthy of Hercules, manicuring lawns the size of a football field with a pair of tweezers. And not just any lawns. These make up the gardens of one of the most sacred sites in North Korea -- the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in Pyongyang, which hosts the embalmed bodies of the nation's founder Kim Il-Sung and his son and successor Kim Jong-Il.
