Guy and Sandrine eat out at a few of the restaurants at the hotel. There’s Restaurant No. 1, Restaurant No. 2., and the creatively named Restaurant No. 3 (under renovation).
The restaurants are practically devoid of people, but the tablecloths are covered in gross stains.
The next day, Guy walks around, observes North Korea—”Very clean. Too clean, in fact” (2.43), he says—and gets a Korean history lesson every now and then.
Guy also gets stuck with a production assistant who sings Korean propaganda songs over and over again.
Later, Guy gets to visit the opulent Pyongyang Subway, which doubles as a fallout shelter. He describes it as “a subterranean palace” (2.83) that is “lit up like Las Vegas” (2.85). We’re not sure about you, but we could go for a fallout shelter lit up like Vegas. Er, wait. Fallout shelter?
