Off to China

Eventually to a place called "Dandong" ("丹東"). It's read as "Red East." It used to be 安東 ("Andong" or "Safe East"), which happens to be the name of a Chinese grocery in Portland OR on Powell Blvd.

It's famous for being "just across the river" Sinuiju, which happens to be in North Korea. So I get to get a look at North Korea (at least from a relatively safe distance), one of the Charter Members of the Axis of you-know-what
