      There is a video on Youtube. Narrow gravel road with small rusty barbed wire fence and iron gate and a single bored guard. Barely anything happens there.

    You know China is near by because of vessels carrying Chinese goods to America.

    Amazing pictures. You can see the complete contrast of the two nations which also happens to be side by side. In addition, they are political allies. Anyway, I think you has an amazing trip, and thanks for sharing it to us.
