Chongqing Port

Chongqing was the city where we disembarked at the end of our Yangtze River cruise on May 1 (Labor Day). This is one of many pictures taken while waiting for a van driver to become available. The thick haze was a combination of early morning humidity and typical Chinese city smog. Those two sitting on the steps were just staring into the distance; I don't know if they were laborers waiting for the odd job offer (like unloading cargo) or Chongqing residents simply resting by the river, surveying the horizon.

  1. I've been to Chongqing many times. Almost every time I was there, there was the haze over the river. Chongqing is still the city that I like. Love the spicy hot pot.
