So here’s another Li River scene, taken a little downstream from yesterday’s image, closer to the cliff in the distance in the right in that photo.
The karst limestone formations in the distance look like the serrated backs of sleeping dragons. From this landscape it’s hardly surprising that the dragon is so prevalent in Chinese culture. With the haze here it looks as though the distant hills could indeed be a dragon’s lair.
Having spent most of the trip in cities of one sort or another, this float through this rural part of China was a welcome change and unlike the buses and planes, by going on deck you could remove the window between yourself and the view passing by.
