Spotlessly clean, open spaces and trees everywhere. No drug dealers or hookers on the corners.

Parachute some bankers in to sort them out!

Thanks for posting, really found that strangely compelling!

Observations: (none that surprising to be honest!)

Lack of colour inc advertising on buses, hoardings and shopfronts

Lack of traffic at rush hour (9am on a Wednesday morning) - leading to - no road markings on 5-6 lane stretches of tarmac

Everyone in very drab clothes

Basically looks like the UK if the green party were in charge. Everyone cycles (except the 'special' people). Everyone lives in identical flats. Everyone has identical clothes, and everyone is officially happy.

I saw plenty of small vans and what looked like cheap cars. Not sure which video you were watching. Are the flats in UK cities not already all identical? Do people in the UK not wear identical clothes? Huge numbers of people in the UK on SSRI's so we must be officially happy too right?

Corrected that for you.

It's a shame we couldn't afford to rebuild them properly after the war because we were busy creating the welfare state and the NHS. I'm sure the people of Coventry would much rather have the comfort of knowing they'll get that hip operation when their number comes up on the waiting list.

Liked the tree lined roads, and the lack of litter and graffiti.

I expected to see a lot more bicycles and older cars, which seemed quite new to be honest. I felt a little sorry for the pedestrians on such long, seemingly endless, straight roads.

A very interesting video though so thanks for that.

Pyongyang is a bueatiful but intriguing city and for those interested the route taken is the inner ring road starting from the left and finishing at Juche Tower (Tower of Justice) - journey of about 9 miles in total.

and an interesting N. Korean-produced critique of that Western Media spin:

Gotta love the quote at 37:45

"Australians, who are really just geographically displaced European Criminals. Deemed unworthy of being on British soil.... These low grade humans called Australia, the lucky country."

....true.

Interested in Jenkins and his miserable Jap wife and 2 miserable daughters.

People have a habit of making the best of things (or the worst)

A lesson for us all.

.....and now a bit of music from winkie.
