LET'S GO SHOPPING!
Xinhua News posts some pictures of "P'yongyang's largest market." (hat tip to NKZone). Row after row of identically dressed vendors selling what looks like the exact same stuff. Not exactly a capitalist paradise in which one can (must?) choose between fifteen different brands of toothpaste or toilet paper. But then again, aside from the uniforms on the vendors, what is to distinguish T'ongil market from one of its South Korean counterparts?
