Inner Mongolia's Russian Border
With winter here, the grass plains of Hulunbuir, Inner Mongolia have become snow-ridden and whatever movement left, comes from the biting wind. When approaching the scattered villages bordering Russia, they seem just as vacant. Most of the inhabitants decide to move to the big cities like Ergun, that provide more work and comfort during the long subarctic winters. Nevertheless, there are those who brave the season amongst snowbound artefacts of a Russian past.
