China: Yangtze river -- 3 Gorges

2001: Ever since the decision was made  to build the Three Gorges Dam, a cruise through the gorges has taken on a new perspective as many travelers realize that time is running out for experiencing one of the world's great natural wonders.  Rising out of the Tangula Mountain in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the mighty Yangtze River twists and turns for about 3838 miles and empties into the East China Sea.  The river is the longest in China and the third longest in the world after the Amazon and the Nile. It has always been a lifeline for transporting people, products and everyday supplies

Slept thru the locks, latish breakfast at 7:30. Most of the day free at 2 docked at Jiangzhou for excursion to museum and city walls. Interesting museum mummy of man found in 1975 from the Warring States period about 500 BC. Well preserved, all organs intact, and skin and muscles still in great shape. Many beautiful objects of sculpture and laquer ware also found there, including a strange chimaera body of snake, head of tiger, with other animals incorporated in its legs. City walls interesting, especially since its the first time on the trip that weve had blue skies. Audrey bought a 50 year old teapot. Roasted chestnuts being sold on the street.
