Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang

Ryugyong Hotel on February 2011

I saw this on Wikipedia, and was surprised by how it looks in the photo compared with what I saw several months ago. This hotel’s construction has been halted for decades; even though it has dominated the skyline of Pyongyang, the actual information about it is hard to obtain, and North Korean tour guides would stop you from taking photos of this building.  But I managed to take some covertly, and here it is, this is how Ryugyong Hotel looked on July 2010. The one from Wikipedia is more likely to be a mock-up.
