North Korea’s Volvos https://www.npr.org/sections/parallels/2017/12/04/547390622/how-1-000-volvos-ended-up-in-north-korea-and-made-a-diplomatic-difference from Monday’s ‘Morning Edition’
I particularly like this part
“Scottish tourist Duncan Lang spotted a Volvo 144 during his trip to North Korea in October 2010. “I heard the car coming before I saw it,” he tells NPR.”
I can only imagine the car’s condition, if the guy heard it “a mile away” before he saw it.
