North Korea — The Land of No Smiles.

The empty street photo reminded me of something I saw on the news a few years ago. Someone had taken a clandestine video inside North Korea. One of the more memorable scenes was a female cop dilligently going through the motions of directing traffic – only there was no traffic. She had her job to do and was doing it well, but there were no cars. It was theater of the absurd but probably typical of North Korea.
