I flew from Xi’an to Chongqing, and boarded the Victoria Cruise. I would travel by boat down the Yangtze River and disembark 3 days later in Yichang.
In the dining room, I was seated at a table with some folks from Michigan. Paul lived and worked in Shanghai. His brother and sister came to visit him. His sister brought her husband, who brought his mother. Together they were traveling through China. This great family, more than once, shook their head in disbelief. I must be one gutsy gal to be traveling 24 days alone in China.
I never thought of myself as “gutsy”. I wanted to see my son, didn’t know anyone who had the time, money and desire to visit China. I had to travel alone if I wanted to see my son.
In the next post, I’ll describe an accident that occurred during this cruise. Call me “gusty”, call me anything you want. Sometimes things go wrong, and to complete my trip I had to think carefully and not panic.
For now, just enjoy these photos from the Yangtze River going through the Three Gorges Dam. It was spectacular one night. Paul, his brother and I went to the top deck. We watched the gigantic doors of the channel locks slowly open and close. Click on any photo to enlarge.
