What does it look like in the other direction from that photo? I mean if you were looking out that front door in the lower structure (now looking almost finished) what would you see?

so there's a sidewalk that continues through a 6-lane road, with only a yellow yield sign to indicate that its there. either too many lanes or no one drives. whats with the giant street?

Plenty of photos of it actually. And yes, it does 'work', why shouldn't it?

Because every tourist has a guide who tells them what not to take pictures of.

I see graffiti, scratched into the window glass of the subway cars.
I wonder what the punishment is when caught?

ola compaņero espero que todo vaya bien!

Yeah, it's a strange country. They all like to laugh at them (i.e. axis of evil etc.) yet it seems that they are having the last laugh

Probably they are being fined or something, or getting away with it
NKorea does not strike me as a repressive, punitive country despite its undeserved bad reputation. Though I must admit that the cult of the Kims is disturbing to say the least...
