filling the immigration forms
We left the Hongkong and its cool metro at Lok Ma Chau (yu should choose this one and not the most popular and most crowded Lo Wu station, when entering in Mainland China - unless yu r not staying in Shenzhen and want to go by train further north, then go over Lo Wu border crossing, where's the train station too) there was only few ppl using this border entrance, so it took pretty no time at all to pass it. It was so empty and so clean, we passed the border and wanted to retrieve some money... but the chinese cash machines didnt like our cards://
We tryed few times with different cards but no one ATM gave us the chinese yuan:( Fortunately we still had some good old "uncle-Sam-dollars". We exchanged them with no problems and off we go! We went to the platform and i noticed the security guard.

.. he was walking and looking at us... i was not sure if i was allowed to take pics in chinese metro stations, so i pretend not to do that, and took some pics only when the guy didnt see us. Later, on our trips by metro Shenzhen i took pics with no fear (lol), but the first moments in a new country made us being carefully:)
The stations look unfortunatelly all the same, but very modern, clean and... so steril! And the biggest pain: no printed maps, even no tickets, because they use this tokens for metro fares and so my collection didnt grow in Shenzhen:( Nevertheless good for me, in Hongkong i found at one of the stations something ... they had metro maps with Hongkong and Shenzhen metro system all together:)))
