    OK jokes aside. This happened some time back. A few bad eggs from there stained these yang rou chuan with AIDS tainted blood then sold them to public. For a while people skipped them. Otherwise, if you don't have a strong stomach, please bring some pills along or skip street peddlars. I frequent NE China but haven't been to this part of the world yet.

    I'm sure you guys will have many photographic opportunities. Enjoy~

    sounds like hoax. why would people do that if there is no benefits?

    are there parts that still have people wearing their traditional costumes? i thought of going manzhouli but not sure what else is interesting in the vicinity.
