Foreigners Tell House Price

Foreigners visited a house on Changjon Street, which was newly built in Pyongyang, and had a conversation with the householder.

“What is the price of your house?”

“I don`t know.”

“How come are you living in this house?”

“The country gave us.”

“Free of charge?”

“Of course.”

They visited several houses. All householders answered any questions readily, but were all struck dumb, at a loss what to say, by the question about the house price.

So the foreign visitors said that in their countries they had to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to live in such a house.

After all, foreign visitors informed the householders of the price.
