2001 Vasilik Family Photos


We walked about a mile on the Great Wall……downhill. The Terra Cotta Warriors in Xi'an. This is only one of four buildings that cover the "unearthed army".


Most were actually destroyed during early revolutions (see the trench area in the back) and recently restored. These stand 6 to 7 feet tall. Many bodies are the same , but each head is different; about 2,000 years old.


Even horses with carts and chariots. The 3 Gorges area on the Yangtze River. Industries along the River cause heavy air pollution.


The 3 Gorges Dam project on the Yangtze River. World's largest construction project. This is the upstream face of the Dam; 600 feet high. Height of the River will rise about 550 feet.


The very modern city of Shanghai. A downtown shopping area in the city of Chong Qing. Used to be called Chung Ching. Dress is very contemporary. No more Mao jackets.


A panda at the Chong Qing Zoo. Tunnel Mountain Park in Guilin.


Eroded limestone mountains in Guilin, along the Li River. How about a small glass of "snake wine"? Not bad; had a little "bite" to it.


Hong Kong from our hotel room. Hong Kong at night.


In the New Territories (suburbs of Hong Kong and Kowloon). Modern high-rise apartments contrast with the "boat houses". At the old Peninsula Hotel in Kowloon.


Overlooking the harbor from Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island.
