David and Hazel's trip to China travel blog

We are out of the gorge. This is last day on boat. We went to a school yesterday. 52 students in a first grade class with very few supplies, books etc. The children were absolutely lovely. Lots of singing and dancing. The afternoon lectures on modern china, Chinese culture and Chinese history are fascinating. Pictures still won't go through.


The commerce by ship up and down the river is intense. Lots of ore coal sand etc plus Hugh ships filled with 190's of shiny new autos.

The city of 10 million here in Wuhan is so modern similar to in many ways to US. At night stunning display of lights constantly changing colors and patterns. Like Los Vegas. 1300' second highest building in world. Seconond only to Dubai.

Museum yesterday filled with bronze urns weapons etc all dating to 2400 years ago. Just amazing metallurgy.

I'm constantly impressed positively about the Chinese history and culture.
