Yichang was kinda off the beaten path

When I went to Yichang in 1987 there was only 1 other foreigner that got off the boat with me. He was a Dutch guy.His name was Ger. We hung out together as we wandered around what seemed to be a sleepy, grey city. The information that I have here will probably not be of any current use as from what I understand the Huge dam project is changing the face of the whole area. So Hopefully you can enjoy my pictures but you will need to check other sites for good current information. Yichang had it's share of the stare crowds. But overall I found it to be very friendly. We happened to walk past a school just as the kids were getting out so for the next couple of hours we had about 50 kids following in our footsteps sort of Pied Piper style! They didn't speak any English and we only new a few words of Chinese between us but it was fun.

School Kids

Here you can see the kids just mobbed us. They were showing us their school work, books and of course explaining it all to us. It was a pretty fun day after being on the ferryboat from Chongqing for 1½ days!

    It certainly is meaningful to anyone who takes the time to read it, Scott. The photos of the children are magnificent! Loved the personal tales of your adventures.

    I was afraid the 3 Gorges views were things of the past.
