I toured Pyongyang on Day 2. Started the day with a beautiful sunrise view at 6am, when, as I later knew, Hwasong-12 ballistic missiles soared from Pyongyang suburb to hit the water near Hokkaido. The pyramid-shaped skyscraper is the 105-story Ryugyong hotel. The DPRK built it to show off national prestige and attract foreign investment, after the country failed to host the 1988 Olympics jointly with the South. The project fizzled following the collapse of the Soviet Union, and what is inside the grandiose hotel remains a mystery.
