China, from Burma
China, from Burma

We're in Burma! Kids were playing in the border control station behind, and the crossing point is a hole in a barbed wire fence about 4 metres to the right of this photo. Sophisticated, eh? The guy who took us here wanted 150RMB for the service, which consisted of a 5 minute walk through a park and then a quick foot tour around some good Burmese monuments, such as the Museum Celebrating Opium Free in Special Region Number 5. He didn't get it.
On the Chinese side of the border hole, there's a set of concrete steps leading down to the tear in the fence. Now, why on earth would anyone build these?
