Foggy and wet Yichang

Off the train at about 8.30am then to the bus station to catch a bus to Yichang. Into the hotel and then to lunch with Eric at 1.30pm at a local restaurant. We sucked it up like we hadn't eaten for days and the sweet and sour pork was brilliant. We were so hungry we had to order extra food. After lunch we went to the mini version of the Three Gorges dam and watched the boats come and go through the lochs. It was amazing to how fast the water was pumped in and out but then there is a lot of water in the Yangtze river. It was cool/cold and drizzling. After that we went back to the hotel to warm up and then out for dinner with except Brent, Andrew and Kim. Eric stayed for a bit to help out with the ordering and then left. Back to the hotel and in bed early and slept soundly even through the massage call at 11.30pm. Below are some delicacies (baby crayfish and sparrows) that I found just outside the hotel.
