Siuijiu is North Korea's connection to China. It is at the mouth of the Yalu River - ice free in winter.

Waiting For Daylight

CET Harbin Program, Fall 2015
Dandong, China

I didn’t take this picture because I was in the picture. I am the one wearing red shirt in the picture. We went to Dandong, China for travel and we wanted to just hang out and look around near our hotel. When we arrived at the place in the picture, we saw many people having fun with their friends and family. However, when we looked at North Korea, we barely saw lights. It just made me think of the lives of the North Koreans. It is a small river between China and North Korea, but their lives are totally different. While the Chinese people have the freedom to spend some time with their loved ones at night, North Koreans stay in their houses and go to sleep, until the sun rises. I chose Perspective Shift for this picture because I was able to think about someone else’s perspective when I was looking at North Korea with no lights. The things I took for granted can be what others sincerely desire. It was a memorable experience that let me shift my perspective.

Dandong, China

This broken bridge is called Sino-Korean Friendship Bridge. This bridge was bombed by Americans during the Korean War. Although the War was called the “Korean War,” many nations participated in the war to fight due to their different ideologies. I chose Global Issues for this picture because it not only is a historical place, but it also symbolizes the somewhat broken relations between China and North Korea. Although the two countries have been maintaining good relationships, North Korea is not fully opened to the rest of the world. Therefore, the exclusiveness of North Korea is categorized as a global issue. This is why I think this photo fits in Global Issues. However, in the title of the picture, I included “Unbroken Hope.” Although North Korea has socially excluded itself from the outside world, I believe there is still hope out there. Many people try to help North Koreans and hope that one day, things will get better in North Korea. Although the past was an “Unbroken Bridge,” what
