Samjiyon, North Korea… or not

Samji, North Korea © Google Maps

This week Pegman takes us to Samjiyon, North Korea…maybe.

When I scouted this location several days ago to prepare the post, there was no street view (unsurprisingly), but there were a half-dozen photo spheres on the North Korea side. The one I’ve provided above no longer works on the map when you search North Korea, and all but one of the photo spheres have vanished! If you zoom out you may still be able to get to a hotel room, lobby, or parking lot. All these are eerie, empty. And who knows, these locations may be taken down by the time you reach this prompt.

If that’s the case, you’re invited to select something from one of the photospheres across the border in China at the Tianci Tourism Holiday Village, where things seem considerably more lively.

    All I found was an image, er- half an image, of a war monument, and when you tried to look at it the inet closed down completely. Will try visiting China.

    Thank you for this challenge, Karen. Street view seems to be working again.
