This will be the first installment of a three (or four) part series of postings on the geography in and around Pyongyang’s so-called Forbidden City.  The first iteration will focus on the office buildings that house the departments and selected sections (or offices) of the Party Central Committee Secretariat which both formulate and enforce policy in the DPRK government, security community and economy.    It is available through Google Docs as a KMZ file for Google Earth and KML file for Google Maps.
