You have been registered for 4 years and have only 9 posts outside of skybar-type forums. Yet what Altin said caused you to protest. I think it's very appropriate to say - BUTTHURT DETECTED! There were only two types of people who got butthurt by Socialism. You know which ones were they?

Anyway, nice to see progress on the tower and hoping for better days, especially in economic terms, for the North Korean people.

I was making more of a cautionary statement. While I can't say I disagree with what you wrote and I can understand your frustration, I found it to be not only humorous but a fairly accurate stereotype but that’s it...not really that much different then what others have said about of the treatment of the North Korean people.
With that, I to am very pleased with the progress and out come, much better then I could have imagined looking at the dieing concrete structure.

That last picture is fantastic! I'd love to have such panorama in my home city. The guy who said NK looked like Romania must be brain damaged

It would be great to see the hotel completely finished with all the lights on inside. It would look straight out of Bladerunner:

Well, to everyone is (should be) clear that the lights are photoshoped.

I also suspect so. But who knows? it is very possible that there is only one kind of bulbs across the North Korea. Besides, I'm pretty sure curtains are uncommon in Korea (not becauseof poverty - there're just not being used), and there's not much furniture in typical Korean interior compared to Western-type interior. But, of course, this can be a Photoshopped picture, I'm not arguing with you.

Dear AltinD, I've read your post where you tell about your life in Communist Albania, and I more than agree with you. I'm 32 years old, and I grew up in Communist Soviet Union. I'm grateful to God for my childhood. We were NOT miserable at all. Look at this big set -who can say these people are miserable and oppressed? And they were NOT!

One might say I didn't feel I was in a hell because we didn't know any other lifestyle. Well, as for me, now I know different lifestyle and I feel sorry for today's kids that they don't have and won't ever have the Soviet childhood.

Sincerely yours,

Pavel Rezvushkin
