Yes sir, Russia. :-) The Evil Empire. This photo was taken in Kazakhstan. I live in a close proximity to the West of China and while Kazakstan lies half that closer, it is not a big ordeal to travel there.
I'm not sure. But both "阿勒泰" and "阿尔泰" are Chinese transliterations of "Altay". In Chinese "勒" and "尔" have similar pronouncings. Maybe they just want to clearly distinguish a mountain and a city.
