Street junction away from Mudanjiang downtown

Unlike monumental and majestic buildings Mudanjiang downtown seen on the left in the vicinity the typical cross street of the Chinese provincial city has some small snack bars and retailers on the ground floor of the ordinary 4 stories residential gray building. Old and dirty delivery vehicles bring daily supplies and discharge at the shops. Few pedestrians speed somewhere in the frosty afternoon hour.
