Chongqing docks

Chongqing docks

Chongqing lies on the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing river, and it is here we board our "tourist class" boat that will take us downstream over the next three days. Chongqing has a large modern port facility - but we can't use it yet. Instead, we get to the boat by walking across a gravel foreshore and tempory moarings - both of which will be underwater when the dam is completed. This photo was taken in the late afternoon - that is not mist, but smog!
