I've been pushing ahead with a post regarding an old favorite topic here -- Google and China -- but it still needs some work. In the meantime, another series of photos, this time from a location in northeast China -- Dunhua, Jilin. I chose to come to Dunhua because I was traveling from Yanji to Jilin City and wanted to stop somewhere in between. I knew nothing about the city except its location on a map.
After arriving at the long distance bus station and walking around looking for a place to stay, it proved to be a surprisingly interesting area, especially the village towns that surrounded the central district of the city.
