So I came across some info yesterday about the Ryugyong Hotel, which is located in North Korea and is one of the tallest buidngs in the world. Pretty impressive for North Korea, having one of the tallest buildings in the world, right? But here’s the catch: no-one has ever spent a night there and no-one ever will. Construction began on the building in 1987 and ended in 1992 when funds dried up and a famine began. No windows were ever installed. So now there is just a giant shell of a building looming over Pyongyang’s skyline, which has to be depressing, like when you have a dead plant in your room that you just never get around to throwing away b/c you don’t want to admit to yourself that you killed a piece of nature.
