A faint alley

Shandong University

f/1.8, 1/80sec, 34mm, ISO8000 | Weihai, China

I was running down a faint alley at the back of the Shandong University last twilight. Having yet to nurture the personal connection to the wilderness I did felt nervous and scared at that time.

  1. I agree that S. Korea will be the country to bnfeeit the most. Not just as an importer and exporter of goods to either country but also as a transhipment point for goods between the other two. As regards convenience, I looked up Weihai and it seems like you are living in a very pleasant city with parks, hotels, shops, schools and universities but also it is a major seaport that already takes in shipping with S. Korea. Loading trains on one side, transporting by rail and arriving at the other side will save a lot of time over sea travel. Agreed it is not direct to Beijing or Shanghai, the former having rail and air links to Weihai whereas the latter only has air links. But after customs inspections, the goods are already on trains get then go on to wherever the railway network can take it. As for air travel, again if passengers or mail has to go to Beijing or Shanghai then it would make sense to incure the minor inconvenience of checking in early at airports and making your way to and from the airports. But there are many people like myself who love travelling by rail and would willing re-arrange itineraries to take into account non-direct routes. It could also generate a lot of business and tourism for Weihai or increase collaboration between researchers for the universities there. The only provisos would be the cost of the railway and tunnels, what other infrastructure changes would be required for the connected cities, and, as someone mentioned, security.
