Manzhouli

May 28—Manzhouli--274 km--Brief ride again today to Manzhouli. Weather a bit better, no rain, and it warmed up a bit. Pretty scenery, with open plains and low hills:Here is an excellent shot of TJ:
Not much too see, stopped at some tourist joint with concrete yurts and a lonely-looking camel:

Got into Manzhouli early afternoon, Russian signs everywhere, Russians everywhere. Stayed at the Intourist hotel in Manzhouli. At the gas station in Manzhouli, we had to fill the bikes with this rusty old bucket:
