You Wanted to See Her! Here She IS!


After about five days in China, we slowed down and took a three day cruise down the Yangtze River through the Three Gorges ending at the Three Gorges Dam.

Amazing, amazing cruise. I loved the small boat with only 200 passengers. Ten of us spoke English and became fast friends with a couple from England and a Mother/Son from New Zealand.

Absolutely stunning and terribly relaxing. I had two massages. Well, it started out as a $15 foot massage and at the end he offered for $18 more, he would do another full body. OKAY! I'm so easy. Three days. Two massages. My idea of heaven!


This is our guide, the sweetest woman in China....Jean! We were in the Lesser Three Gorges during a small boat trip like the one below.


What a beautiful place!

Those photos are really cool. And for two massages in three days, I might jump on a plane today.

Scenic beauty...cute bunny guide...massages. Why did you come back?

Did you tell Jean that I could rescue her from her 3rd world torment and bring her to the land of enchantment that is Atlanta?

Beautiful scenery! That cruise looks like a lot of fun.

Did you give Jean my number? International calls and texts cost a fortune, but might be worth it. ;-)
