Swimmers from the "Yalu River Swimming Association" walk into the water to swim in the Yalu River 
Swimmers from the "Yalu River Swimming Association" walk into the water to swim in the Yalu River opposite the North Korean town of Sinuiju, in the Chinese border city of Dandong September 12, 2008. Each day, in warm months, hundreds of Chinese swimmers plunge into the narrow Yalu river which divides their country from North Korea, with dozens kicking the 500 metres to the opposite side for a rest and a glimpse of the poor, withdrawn communist state. Dandong's "Yalu River Swimming Association" and other things in this gaudy trading city reflect many Chinese people's mix of fatalism and disdain concerning North Korea. They see it as stuck in a suffocating communism their own country escaped. REUTERS/David Gray (CHINA)
