Photographer's Note

I searched TE to see if this place has been pictured on TE, and it seems I am the first to show this place. I labeled it DPRK for more exposure, but my feet were in China for this picture. I used Photoshop to overlay the flags to show who owns what. A workshop is posted with out the flags.

This picture shows (if you know what you are looking at)all 19Km of the boarder between Russia and the DPRK. On a clearer day you can see the sea. The bridge is the only land connection between Russia and the DPRK. The Tumen river is the understood boundary for North Korea, although Google Earth says that it is across the first mountain. China has little more than a tourist trap here, but a military presence to stop stupid tourists from crossing borders.
