Day Nine: October 23, 2007

We ended our Yangtze journey in Chongqing. Here, we visited the Chongqing Zoo (which is definitely the most depressing zoo I’ve ever been to—it’s no “conservation society” by any stretch of the imagination) and the “Old Street” to see how real Chinese live their lives. The area was bustling with activity—children, businesses, animals, mopeds and scooters and motorcycles. It engaged all the senses because there was so much going on around us. And for once, we weren’t looking at the back of other tourists’ heads because there weren’t any, except ourselves.

You can start with Giant Panda and see the rest of our day from there. Or view the entire set, China Trip: October 2007.
