comment Is it safe/possible for a long haired guy to visit North Korea?
You might be remembering the trip report by Simon Bone. He notes that during his visit "I noticed one Korean looking at me, and discussing me with his friend: they were shocked by my long hair." This trip took place in 1998, so this obviously is not current information! simonbone.com/northkorea.html

comment Is it still possible to obtain a visa on arrival at the Armenian border or must I now have an E-visa?
Not really important, but I got an e-visa on my visit to Armenia in 2003. They've been around for a while.

@user3470 I've got to disagree. It is not a question, and it is not crystal clear.

comment Is it possible to carry pepper spray for self-defense?
I'm not sure you'd want to lug that thing around, though. There is a smaller version, advertised as dog spray, that you could carry in your pocket. When I bought bear spray and dog spray, I was required to show ID and give my name and address. That was a few years ago, so maybe the rules have changed. By the way, I've never used either of my two sprays!
