More images of North Korean monuments…
I think this sphere and orbit building was part of a technology museum on the road to and from the airport. We didn’t enter it though we went near it. I suspect it’s not in active uses.
We saw this church, one of the few religious things outside of the government’s state sponsored religion. I don’t know if it has active serviced or is just for show.
This anchor statue was on a building at the top of a hill over a barrage (I had to look it up too). I guess it once also acted as a lighthouse, but I’m not sure.
Here we see workers on the roof of a big new building under construction. I’m not sure what the building is for — maybe a convention center — but the next two pictures show more of the construction.
The point of this picture is to show the apparent absence of any safety equipment whatsoever.
More construction of the building from the previous picture, along the Taedong River.
More construction of the building from the previous two pictures, along the Taedong River. I think we were approaching the flower exposition, near the Juche Tower, and not far from the workers’ monument.Another view of the Ryugyong Hotel.
