    • 768,551 – but anywhere outside of Pyongyang has a small town feel to it, so I’m sticking to it.

    • or I suppose I could say – hey everyone look how backwards the people are in this medium size industrial North Korean city, they get around in hand carts! But that kind of thing gets me banned from the country and my tour company in trouble, instead I post the pictures and try to say something a little constructive to keep any agents from the DPRK from getting upset, and with the picture out there readers decide for themselves.
