We also had a buffet lunch on the boat. One person in our party was very late so all the other boats had left before us and we were the last boat in a large flotilla, at least 9 boats.
We had a good view of the galley of the boat in front of us – ours was the same, more or less open-air and everything being cooked on an open (gas) flame. At one point we could see some big flames from the boat in front and later a fisherman pulled in behind the boat and passed some large fish over.
There are many more photos from this river cruise which I will post over the coming weeks although they are not accompanied by words in the journal. I’ll start this series here with pictures of other boats on the river Li.
This post is an extract of my mother’s travel journal written during a tour of China in 2013.
