“Best day of my life!” – Thekluxi1 “Saw Nickelback in concert here!” – Jason
So I was checking out the new-and-improved satellite images on Google Maps the other day when my curiosity got the best of me.
As a South Korean-Canadian immigrant, I always heard about the border between North and South Korea, and how the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) was and still is the world’s most heavily guarded border.
I took a quick glance expecting to see massive bunkers and tanks and soldiers but unfortunately, Google was one step ahead and blurred out any confidential material.
But they didn’t blur out North Korea and what their cities look like– I took one glance at the capital city of Pyongyang and was astounded when I saw their soccer stadium was sitting at a solid 3.7 stars according to Google reviews.
That struck me as odd. North Korea’s stadium has 300 reviews? Isn’t the country banned from using the internet?
Of course it is. Turns out, the rest of the world has been happily reviewing North Korea online and the results are the best things I’ve read all week.
There are PLENTY more (300 in fact), but some of them aren’t as ‘family friendly’ so I encourage you to take a look and explore North Korea!
