Chongqing – At the Point
Chongqing is situated at the juncture of the Changjiang (aka Yangzi, aka Yangtse River) with another large river coming in from the north. Steve took pleasure in noting that this makes Chongqing just about as much like his home of Pittsburgh as any other Chinese city might be — which is to say, not much! In these pics, you see him at the point, and then two shots actually taken from the ship on the morning of our departure for the cruise downriver: one shows the “point” where land and the two rivers meet, and the other shows the cable car that runs from the peninsula (central downtown Chongqing) over to the north bank of the Changjiang. There are such cable cars from downtown across both rivers.
