There was of course no light inside the tunnel. As far as I know the North Korean highways were built in the 1990ies, but they are already in a relatively bad state. The bumpy asfalt doesn't allow speeds much over 100 km/h.
Traffic is scarce, we only see some tourist busses, some military trucks and very few "private" cars (maybe owned by high party members). However, North Korea is the first country in the world, which has adapted the "shared-space" concept ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_space ) also for highways: They are used by cars, bycicles and pedestrians!

People have to do most on foot, members of the government have cars.

Not willing to be so radi-tematic:

One of the best custom plates I've seen so far(many others are just names or stupid nicknames):

G indicates Pomorskie Voivodship, but it's either Gdańsk, Gdynia or Sopot(custom plates do not distinguish between cities in one region)

I can't see the pic, PLH.

EDIT: I can see it now, it's nice, although not as much as the car

PS: you didn't post your photo, I think

No way! I thing we all have some image of other's here and, as forme, it would be not the same after we know each other's appearances.

Or maybe somewhere at the beginning of that thread there are some pics only I don't know of?
