Chongqing expedition

It's been a while since I last went on a solo trip, so I thought I could use the past long weekend holiday to have a date with spicy hotpot and cold beer in spring time. So, Chongqing it is!

Shancheng beer is the local brew. Shancheng literially means "city of mountain" in Chinese, or "city in mountains", or "mountains in city"... whichever way you like to call it, it will never fail to help picture the city layout for you. It's literally a city built on hills and mountains along the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. Amazing view and amazing heartbeat when you are in a local taxi/bus racing up and down winding through the city streets on hills and tunnels with the gorges and rivers just underneath. I don't even know how the city's cartographers make their living in a 2-D map world because the city is practically vertical!

Anyway, back to the business. A photo for your edification on how the locals spend their day - hotpot and cold beer withe a window view of the Yangtze river.
