The Hagers embark on a 16 day whirlwind guided tour to China, visiting major cities and sites. Arriving in Beijing, first visit was Tiananmen Square, largest square in the world, the Imperial Palace (Forbidden City) and the Great Wall of China. On to Xian they viewed the Terracotta Armored Warriors. Cruised the Yangtze River Gorge and inspected the Three Gorges Dam Site, continuing on the Yangtze to Fengdu, the Ghost City. Along the way, other unique and interesting cities were visited, ending their tour in the seaport city of Shanghai, the busiest container port in the world. Mode of travel was bus, plane, sampan, rickshaw, river cruise and sailing through locks and canals. Pauline narrates her impressions, accompanied by her photos.
England by Land. Motoring British style on narrow, winding roads, the Hagers vacationed two week in England, enjoying the beautiful English countryside. First stop was the Cotswold, a hilly, rural region. Visited historic Tewkesbury Abby in Glouceter county, Sudley Castle, and William Shakespeare's home in Stratford-upon-Avon. On to Bourton-on-the-Water, spending hours at the Cotswold Motor Museum. Continued north to scenic Lake District in Cumbria county. Boarded a car ferry on Lake Windermere to the village of Hawshead. Happened on the home of Beatrix Potter, author of "The Tales of Peter Rabbit." North to postcard-picture Grasmere Village and the home and museum of famed Romantic Poet William Wordsworth. Further north arrived at Ravenglass, and rode the Ravenglass and Eskdale miniature railway. Turning south, last stop was the fortified city of York, noted for its turbulent past. An exciting and historic tour, accompanied with photos at each stop.

Excerpt

In China, our tour guide explained the Chinese mantra:
BIG is good, RICH is better;
make lots of MONEY.

Everything is large in China, except the people - they continue to remain small and slender, so far.

England by Land.
In the guest bedroom a painting of Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), a frequent visitor, hung on the wall. Together, he and Wordsworth published "Lyrical Ballads", a collection of poems generally credited with starting literature's Romantic Movement. I recalled reading "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner" and "Kubla Khan" in my eighth grade literature class, never imagining I would one day visit the house where these men lived and wrote these classics.
