I missed the great opportunity to experience the Chinese New Year, as I spent that night on the train from Kunming to Chongqing – actually the largest city by population in China!
As I had to leave early the next morning and the weather was miserable again, I did not see much of Chongqing. I took the boat to Wuhan the next day.
Wuhan was just a stop-over for one night. I met with a classmate from my home university, who was studying in Wuhan – the others were also traveling at the time.
The boat trip from Wuhan back to Shanghai was rather boring, as the river gets wide, and you cannot see much.
