Good looking projects. Amazing what a centralized economy can do.

It enviable to see North Korea having a leader that knows so much about everything that everyone take notes whenever he opens his mouth to enlighten them.

That leagues above the lack of respect for politicians in my country.

North Korea sure shows the rest of the world how things should be done

Could you please stop with those kind of comments.
Everytime I see people here, that can't miss an oportunity to derail a discussion about North Korea, thus turning it into another thread in which only 1/10 of the comments are thread related, and the rest are about users arguing about politics.

If you hate North Korea, or their Leader - Fine, make a political thread and discuss it there. Just **** off with your bullshit in a thread that is discussing PyongYang.

It's a unique feature in this thread that there are loads of pictures with the head of state touring the building sites with a bunch of people surrounding him with notepads.

That seems to be a curious deviation from the norm.

How can that be an irrelevant observation?

Construction in Pyongyang - Airport

I see some of my photos are being posted and I just returned from Pyongyang last week. Photographing construction is a bit of a problem as they get really annoyed at us if we shoot too much.

Airport Construction - The Sunnan airport is being reconstructed and I saw the beginning of this in 2011. Here are photos from week before last.

Construction in Pyongyang City

The construction goes on just as active as in the 2011-12 period. One thing I noticed was that some projects were going full tilt and others were at a dead standstill. The shell of a building was up but nothing had been finished out.

Pyongyang at night looks very different from 2011. Still you can see that even if the outside of the building is finished that there is little light in the building. I think the apartments are not all occupied.

Pyongyang is having electricity problems just as I saw in 2008 and 2009. With all the new buildings they do not have enough power.

Haedanghwa Center





Finally, a building that doesn't look like it is from the late 70s.
