On the flight from Urumqi to Chongqing we saw ranges of snow covered mountains.|
As we approached the city we caught sight of a river - maybe the Yangtze?
Thirty-three million people, according to the local guide! Like the population of Canada in this one city.|
We visited the Flying Tigers museum - a fascinating experience for those of us old enough to remember them from WWII.|
While the guide described the museum, an artist created a painting, which seems to be a source of income to support the museum.
We visited the old market area, the only part of the city that was not destroyed in WWII.|
The pastry from the sieve looked almost like plaster of paris.
The locals seem to like to be photographed with odd-looking tourists.
Traffic congestion in China makes Toronto look like a cake walk, but we|
finally made it to our river cruise boat, the Gold 8, with appropriate greeting.
