Gorgeous Gorges and Cruising on a not so slow boat.
14.09.2011 - 16.09.2011 28 °C
We are currently on the second day of cruising on the Yangtse and loving it. Am finally using wifi which I did not realise we had access to until today. Our room which is a suite comes with access to decent dining room and these perks. We thoroughly enjoyed Shanghai and Suzhou and when I get the time i will update the Blog. Taking lots of video and photos will attach some in this entry. Celina has added to the local economy by buying a pure silk winter jacket which cost less at the Silk factory than polyester ones at home and we also purchased a silk runner for the hall and silk doona cover and pillows for the master? bedroom. Suzhou was great and we have had wonderful accommodation and food so far. The Yangtse is spectacular as is the 3 Gorges Project and the 3 Gorges themselves and the lesser 3 gorges as well. Today we were treated to a Sampan ride into the 3 lesser gorges and Mum is now enjoying a spa bath in our cabin. Last night we had a Dynasties spectacular featuring Chinese Dynastic costumes sing and modelling of ancient and modern Chinese costumes. Tonight we have a crew Cabaret show and tomorrow we go to the Ghost City of Fengde. Hopefully my chest cold will have settled by then. We have been also informed we will get a chance to cuddle a young Panda in Chengdu.
