China’s Empty City for 1 million

That’s not a mistake: The city is built, all of the houses and condos in it are sold, it can accommodate one million people, and not a single person lives there.

Chovanec, associate professor at Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management in Beijing, China, visited North Korea in October 2008. He recently began a series of posts, including photos, about that experience.

Chovanec’s blog is sure to become a “must visit” for me.

    The North Korea posts, from my first dip into them, are absolutely stunning. Would you mind putting that on the blogroll, please?
