We took the train from Chendu to Yichang. The train passed by Wudang Shan, the monastery where Zhang San Feng, the Taoist monk who disliked the hard techniques of Shaolin martial arts, created Tai Chi. In Yichang, we went out to look at the controversial Three Gorges Dam. We spent the afternoon walking along the banks of the Yangzi. This is the largest dam in the world.
