April 23, Wednesday

After breakfast, headed for the airport with another box lunch. Not as good as the first but OK.

Flew to Chongqing. On the Yangtze River, this was the capital of China during WWII. The Flying Tigers were based here.

Found some time to see the “Peoples House” (seat of Govt, I think) and to visit a local market. Note the booze is 60% Alcohol (that is 120 proof folks)

The walk from the bus to the ship was not bad but the stairs down to the river were very steep. Made it nonetheless.
