On the one hand, you see leaking roof, power outages several times, officials gisting and chatting while passengers wait on elongated queues, money exchanging hands with smiles all around, the ubiquitous heat everywhere, start underdevelopment.
On the other side, you encounter paradise. Well, paradise with extreme cold! But paradise where things move along with oiled efficiency, smiling human relations and aesthetic infrastructure.
Hmmmm. I know this has been said before, but it bears saying and saying again. The shocking contrast often shocks and triggers the intellect into reflecting again and again, even ad nauseaum.
