청수는 평안북도에 있습니다. 중국의 단동시 맞은 편이죠. 단동에서 만난 뱃사공에게 부탁해 배를 빌려 압록강을 따라 유람을 합니다. 북한 국경의 모서리가 보이네요. 저쪽 너머에 북한 군이 총을 쏠까 걱정하지 마세요, 그럴 일은 없습니다. 손을 흔들어 주세요, 그러면 그들도 손을 흔들어 인사합니다. 제가 있는 곳의 위성좌표를 알려드릴께요: 40°26’56.2″N 124°52’38.8″E .

Soldiers along the border do not appear hostile. When I waved at them, they waved back. These guys were unloading stuff off a boat.
국경너머의 군인들이 비우호적이지는 않네요. 제가 손을 흐드니 그쪽에서도 손을 흔들어 화답합니다. 배에서 무언가를 내리고 있습니다.
