To PeterC: Three Gorges
Hi Peter - I wish I'd had the opportunity to see that area before the flooding began - I keep wondering about the empty towns along the route and the scale of the engineering they are employing to preserve certain things as well as the scale of destruction - they are blowing up the buildings now abandoned - but I still haven't travelled the route yet.

I'm glad you have become part of the select group who appreciate this image - it's one that keep catching my eye again and again and perhaps of anyone here you have the ability to put your finger on it - it is something to do with a Chongqing ambience.......

best wishes Kev

Re: To PeterC: Three Gorges
I wish i had gone there a little earlier as the three main gorges were already pretty high! The other smaller or Lesser three gorges were pretty spectacular. It was also fascinating to visit ghost towns where people had been ordered to leave as the rising water crept ever closer!
