Lesser three Gorges

overcast 86 °F

We arrived as Wushan and at 9:30am departed the ship for another smaller vessel to view the Misty Gorge area and the 2000 year old hanging coffin - a royal child that was buried high in the wall of the gorge. I was pretty spectacular scenery. Back to the ship for lunch and a quiet afternoon cruising down the river.

This evening right after dinner, we transited the 5 locks of the three gorges dam. It takes about to four hours to do. They really pack the boats in, and it is quite interesting, if not as interested as the Panama Canal, because of the age of those locks.

No pictures today, and the internet system, although reasonably fast, wouldn't accept large files.
