'POLICE, POLICE' George cries out, as we are mobbed by people at the train station as our porter tries to scam us out of a lot of money for carrying a few bags up some stairs. The police came and we were left with dealing with the rough impolite taxi drivers – who refused to take us with luggage. Eventually we got in and off to the lovely …
... the boat to visit a local school that the tour company sponsors. The elementary school was reminiscent of a prison/school architecture mix. We were greeted by all the children who were playing drums, violins, and dancing. We mingled with the children and visited a classroom until it was time to make our way back to the ship. We departed Yueyang hoping for clearer skies and water. Tomorrow we arrive at the controversial Three Gorges Dam and the Xiling ...
... our gate was at the farthest way along. We stopped in one of the restaurants for coffee, and tried their WiFi but couldn't connect to our email, but somehow Sarah managed to get us on FaceTime, which was a pleasant surprise.

After lunch we head to the airport for a one hour flight to Xian, the home of the Terracotta Warriors.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMarco Polo Wuhan
the hotel was pleasant, but we were so greatly helped by the conceirge who saw us overloaded with baggage and sent two of his men - Eric and Henrry- to help us at the train station - and oh what a help they were. Sometimes it is the personal service that means everything - and thank you conceirge, Eric and Henrry foryou help - and the extra service, so kindly given.
