People Rule!

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.

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 .
