From: BruceI find the views of the two sides of the river/border rather interesting. The North Korean side appears very bland, almost monochromatic, while the Chinese side is dotted with colored buildings & rooftops. A rather telling view of the two countries politics and economics.

Also note the Broken Bridge immediately next to this bridge. Fairly appropriate bridge name.
From: pete592Another very telling sign of the economic disparity is the number of automobiles in the streets on each side. In North Korea, almost no one can afford a car.

This is even more obvious when you compare the streets of Pyonyang to those of Seoul.
From: SlimnocaVery cool
