. . . we awake moving full-steam downstream.
There is much more activity on the shore and a great variety of water craft.
. . . . .
We move to the top deck where we spend much of the
admiring the passing panorama.
. . . .
Our last chance to explore the ship and prepare for
tomorrow's disembarking at Jingzhou.
The Captain's Farewell Dinner
The waiters file in to serve our final meal in the ship's dining hall.
A chance to toast and say our goodbyes to our tablemates
. . . . . . . .
Following the meal we moved to the showhall
where we were entertained by fellow-cruisemates in a talent show.
. . . .
The next morning we disembarked at Jingzhou,
a city located on the banks of the Yangtze River with 6000 years history
where the culture of "Chu" was raised and developed.
We took a city tour of Jingzhou and then transferred to our hotel in Wuhan.
We were looking forward to our high-speed bullet train ride to Hangzhou.
