I left Huian this morning and arrived in Gaoyou this afternoon. A tail wind and having the Grand Canal to my right made today’s 130 km go by pretty quickly. The Grand Canal flows from Beijing to Hangzhou. It’s the largest canal in the world with the oldest parts dating back the 5th century BC.
Boat heading upstream on the Grand Canal
Happy I got to cruise along this quiet and shaded dirt road next to the canal
Wild ducks?! Next to the side of the road? Amazing Chinese wildlife!
