Day 7 - Yangtze River Cruise


Hi everyone

Today we continued our cruise down the Yangtze River and had a pretty relaxing day. This morning we went on a ferry tour of Shennong Streamwhich lasted 2-1/2 hours. The views were spectacular and we got to see a couple of hanging coffins. I will post a couple of pic and see if you can see them. They are reported to be over 2,000 years old.

After lunch, we sailed through the Wu George and then through the Qutang George. We docked near the White Emperor City for an optional tour. We decided to give that a miss as it was raining and we had a massage instead. Never having had a Chinese massage before it was a bit different to other massages I've had - it was great though. I have struggled with the pillows here and wake up each day with a crick in my neck. The massage seems to have worked.

Each night our tour group heads to happy hour and we try to answer the trivia questions that are published each day in The Age - we have a lot of fun. They have been serving this really. nice French wine. We were only supposed to be getting 1 drink per meal but the waiters seem happy enough to top up our glasses. The cocktail of the day was a Kamikaze. It certainly lives up to its name!

Tomorrow will be our last day on board and we will be heading out on the morning for a tour and possibly one in the afternoon. I'm hoping to get a pedicure in some time through the day.

Not much else to report for the day - just a lot of laughs with some people in our group.

Will try to upload some pics. Seems the internet has a bit of a meltdown when I try to upload.

Until the next entry 😀
