    Photos from Chongqing

    I didn't partake in too many tourist attractions this time around because I wanted a real vacation that included long, relaxing hours sipping Chinese tea and reading books. Here are a few photos of the weekend. There are a few watch pics too.

    I did not find out what this building is for, but it was huge.



    These next photos show a great contrast of architecture between two time periods- 1000 years ago(I could be mistaken) and today. The Luo Wen temple in downtown Chongqing.





    Some photos of downtown, hotpot (a famous meal in the Sichuan region), watch shops and the art museum.








    The People's Liberation memorial


    Upon closer inspection ... Rolex!


    Photos from the night cruise

    Looks like an awesome place to visit. Is it spendy?

    I think it is extremely affordable. I spent less than 200 USD the entire weekend.

    Thank you posting these pictures, lovely to see CQ again. Glad the visibility is much better for you. I spent ten days veiled in fog:

    Isn't it the best? I love hotpot, and I love giving it to those who are not used to the spice even more.
