Identifying the Ibiza of N. Korea: Where Kim Jong Un met Rodman

Satellite imagery reveals Rodman went to Wonsan

Back in September former NBA basketball star Dennis Rodman made a second trip to North Korea to visit his friend, the Dear Respected Kim Jong Un. Although a handful of pictures of the meeting surfaced online and much was said about the trip by international media, few actual details emerged and much remains unknown about what was discussed, and where.
