|No, this is NOT North Korea. Hello Los Angeles.|
First of all, North Korea doesn't have all that many cars. If you omit all the Mercedes Kim Jong-Il buys for the very few high officials and himself, and all the military tanks, all that remains is the decades-old trucks (some run by steam engine, burning wood) for the most part. North Korea actually designed and built their own car, named "Whistle".
All pictures are from, yet again, Joo Sungha's N. Korea blog. Go here if you want to see the rest of the pictures : 평양 고속도로 : 북한RT
And click on the pictures to see the larger picture.
The point is, cars are very scarce in North Korea. They just can't afford it. But they did build highways, before the major economic downfall that started in 1980~1990s. And this is what they look like.
|405 doesn't look like this even at 4am.|
|Car to people ratio - 4:1|
|And cows with wagons too.|
|Sign reads : Pyongyang 16km|
|Drying corns and napping on the road|
So I guess this kind of thing is only funny in America. People wouldn't understand why this funny in North Korea.
