More pandas at another zoo. This is the zoo where Toronto got its pandas. Our cruise on the Yangtse River started in Chongqing.
These are called red pandas but they look more like racoons!
The view from our river boat while we were still docked in Chongqing.
The Shibaozhai Pagoda, our first stop on the cruise. We walked the 99 steps to the very top!
The view of the three gorges section of the river from our boat.
We actually took a smaller boat to get further into one of the gorges.
A 'talent show' our last night on the cruise. Our whole group got up and sang 'You are my sunshine' to thunderous applause from the audience!
The skyline from across the river in the Bund. We went to the top of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, the large tower on the left..
And here's the view from the Oriental Pearl TV Tower.
We saw The Shanghai Acrobatic show the one evening we were in the city.
We left our tour group in Shanghai and headed off on our own to Hong Kong. Here's the skyline from across the harbour in Kowloon.
One of the side streets near our apartment.
Debbie, in red, shopping. The steel and glass of downtown was just a block away.
