Three Gorges Day 3

April 27th, 2009, 5:58 am PDT by Greg

On the 27th, we started with a side trip to see the Snow Jade Cave at Fengdu. Considering that pretty much every nightmare I have involves confined spaces, I enjoyed it. (I’m not actually claustrophobic, I just dream that I am.) The geology in the cave was really pretty cool: hopefully some of the pictures come out well.

In the afternoon, there was kite flying from the top deck of the boat. Watching 20 kites fly above a cruise ship is really quite pretty. Several kites were lost to overhead powerlines (by others) and one just got lost overboard (by Kat): I prefer to think of these as a free kite for some kids downstream somewhere.

On our last night on the boat, I slept badly, snored, and kept Kat up. Good times.

Today we disembarked, took a quick tour of Chongqing. Chongqing is the largest city in the world if you count like the Chinese government (or 5 million if you count the people that live in the “city” part of the city), and we had like two hours to look at it.

Then, to Xian where we are now. Tomorrow, we see the Terra Cotta Army.
