As part of a tour of China, where the People’s Republic has a hand in the itinerary, we tourists get taken to People’s monuments. In Chongqing we were dropped off in People’s Square just in front of the Hall of the People.
I believe you had to pay to get in. Not part of the tour….
Across the Square is the Three Gorges Museum – visible behind the arch – which was not part of our visit. But we wandered up and down the plaza…turned loose with very little explanation other than the time we were to return to the bus.
Wet, but the rain had stopped. An immense plaza looking down from the Hall.
The plaza looking back towards the Hall of the People.
Mom, in her heels, can’t keep up!
The chap with the yellow jacket around his waist was our wonderful tour guide.
No idea who this is or what it represents. No English translation.
