Yangzte River, Day 4 ShiBaoZhai!

Early today we went up to the top deck to a spectacular view of the famous Red Pagoda. Too bad I left my camera in the cabin! After breakfast we set out to see this amazing place. It was a huge climb up a hill so I took the easy chair... otherwise known as the sedan chair! After a session of haggling I was carried out of the ship, through the marketplace and eventually with more haggling up to the base of the pagada.

No, that's not me waving. I couldn't talk them into taking me up this far.
