We fly into Wuhan from
Beijing. So far as we know, it's just some river port where we are going to
board the ship for our Yangtze River cruise.
When we board the bus at the airport we learn that Wuhan is the capital of
Hubei province and has a population of 7.5 million people. This is the first in
a series of cities larger than New York that we have never heard of. The
conclusion reached by our tour group is that if you have 1.2 billion people, you
have to put them somewhere, so 8 million here, 8 million there, after a while,
it starts to add up!
