I remember reading in a news post about the buses. That tower is the best tower I have ever seen, the glass, that shine to it, it's just amazing! They should build somthing even bigger after this, like a Palace Of The Soviets.

If North Korea's communist government collapses, i hope the office and residential portions are taken out of the Ryugyong Hotel.

The new buses are cool, they look like intercity ones though. The tower looks great now.

The government is not likely to collapse anytime soon. From the news the yankees post on North Korea is mostly fake scince no yankee knows whats going on, on the inside of NKorea so they get even faker news from south korean propoganda groups which just tell lies. And NKorea lasted a very long time, scince 1945 which is very long ago so don't exect anything to change exept maybe a war. And buses look good.

The podium still needs to be done. The structure is there already but it has no cladding, as you can see on the recent pictures.
