We arrived at Yichang. This is our final destination of our Yangtze River Tour. Our next offshore excursion is to visit the Three Gorge Dam Project. The Chairman is visiting the Dam. The trip is cancelled, as they closed the area. We visited the Gozhouba Shiplock, instead.
Last chance for me to take more shots that Yichang can give. To compensate from my disappointment of not visiting the Three Gorge Dam Project, I've got good sceneries, including some great photos of what I always like to compose on "reflections," and some shots of sceneries to certain angles to make them more interesting, especially if you catch them on a canvas.
This ended our "Forever Yangtze River Tour 2007, with countless memorable moments and places to remember back home.
As the Great Wall of China is one spectacular place to visit and climbed the thousand of steps to reach the top, the Yangtze River is one very important route for the people around it. I now understand why the houses, buildings and even primitive dwelling places are facing the river on both sides, maybe not all but mostly are.
After our morning tours, we disembarked and took the flight to Shanghai.
From the Yangtze River to the most architecturally designed city of China, gives me the comparisons and diversities of livelihood, therefore, a wider and better grasp of life. Undeniably, there are the poor, there are the well to do. Shanghai lulls you the beautiful light works at night; and if you have not seen "The Bund of Shanghai at Night," and the Nanjing Road, you have not seen Shanghai. :) The breath taking drop from the 88th floor of Shanghai Jinmao Tower, "takes your breath away," down the ground floor in few seconds.
