Creepy North Korea: The Hidden 5th Floor
There are some things on a trip that are just asking to be done. When we noticed that elevator buttons skipped the 5th floor of our hotel in Pyongyang, or that if you google Yanggakdo Hotel it auto-fills it to Yanggakdo Hotel Floor 5″, we knew something was up. And we also knew nobody was allowed to go there.
So we went there.

Last night at the hotel/最後の宴
By way of nothing, did you know that in the elevators for the Yanggakdo International Hotel there is no 5th Floor? Mysterious, no? I and a couple other members thought so and aided only slightly by alcohol we decided to check out the missing floor by the stairs as there simply had to be something to it. Esshie was somewhat concerned that we might be caught and then permitted by the authorities to make true our dreams of staying permanently in the DPRK. No such luck thoughwe made it back without incident. Well, thats to say we werent caught. What we did find was very interesting indeed. First, the 5th floor is unlike any floor of the hotel, it is all concrete, like a bunker, complete with steel doors. There are no decorations of any kind; instead there are propaganda posters. At that time all the strange doors were shut tight, but we were still able to stumble upon the most intriguing off all: in a corner there was a large pile of what appeared to be miniature cameras, as if awaiting repair. Cameras, lots of them, and well enough for each room of the hotel. I dont think I need to spell it out for you, word for word anyway. Oh, and another member of our group reported that when he went at a different time one door was open and there appeared to be official-looking men before computers or machines of some kind and listening to something with headphones. Add it up and its chills down the spine.
Did it contain Obambis missing bc?
Must be the guys running AttackWatch...
Why are the kids there, and why wouldn’t N Korea be eavesdropping on all the hotel guests...sheesh
These kids’ parents must be certifiably insane to allow them to go to N Korea. My kid’s teacher wanted to take a group to China and I said I was absolutely not sending my kid to Communist China. No way.
Usually in U.S. buildings they just skip the number on the elevator. Guess that's not enough for the Norks.
I think it's number 4. It sounds the same as the word meaning 'death.'
Some Asian buildings skip both 4 and 13. Evidence of cultural exchange. LOL.
“Iranian hikers” kept coming to mind as I read this.
I kept thinking about how we are not so terribly far from this, albeit without the drama. My county has a "helicopter surveillance program" against its citizens, looking for code violations. It's to "protect the environment" you know.
Hey, this is America! The worst it gets here is that you need parental permission to get French fries.
For now. Once ObamaCare takes over, Michelle will make sure that feeding your kid French fries will be considered equivalent to child abuse.
‘Usually in U.S. buildings they just skip the number on the elevator.’
The only building I have ever seen that actually had a “13th” floor is the CNN center in Atlanta.
Bunch of pansies. I notice they haven’t been to Detroit. And they claim they want an education. Next.
Idiots who play chicken with North Korean intelligence end up is dark places, hoping Jimmy Carter gets them out.
