Abandoned places visited
Saturday, 5 April 2008
Since there were so many people around this section, I felt the urge to excuse myself by playing innocent tourist and making lots of photos of the buildings from the outside. (I'm sure some locals think it's a bit annoying how people come there, and I most certainly didn't want them to suspect I was a vandal or something ... ;_;)
At one point a gray-haired man caught up with me and started lamenting how they had let these amazing buildings decay, "after all the tax money we from the West have paid them" ... "These buildings are works of art! It hurts my heart", he said. "I'm a customs officer, you see!", he added.
