Grand People's Study House Pyongyang North Korea

The North Korean government loves to give medals. Not only to soldiers, but even to elevators! An elevator has been built to last, for example, 20 years. If it lasts more than 20 years, the government awards it. PCs, bridges, tractors, buses, can all be awarded medals too.

On the left, the elevator in the picture received 3 "number 26” awards. It’s an exceptionnal elevator!

The “ number 26” award is allocated specifically to machines.

Well, problem is that when go inside, you know that this machine is over aged!
