Yangzi Cruise

In 2003 I was on a cruise on the Yangzi, from damply-vertical Chongqing to the partially-built new Three Gorges Dam.  It was a relaxing couple of days, with plenty of geology, river life and construction.

The Dam

One excursion was along the very lovely Shennong gorge (later flooded when the dam was completed), re-creating the historical experience of “tracking” boats along the rapids.  I found being pulled  by a team of men very embarrassing.  The gorge was beautiful and peaceful, but at the end-point of our trip, were enterprising stallholders!
