Well the skies did not magically clear as they did in Russia, but we did not get skunked either.

This was the view when we arrived at the site about 7 AM.  The eclipse was supposed to begin in about 1.5 hours.  For more see the page on eclipse day (7-22) below.

I once again had the pleasure of travelling with TravelQuest International, by preferred eclipse vendor.  They certainly took care of us this time!!

Since I did not get any photos of the sun beyond the above that are worth sharing, this will mostly be a travellog.  That is fine.  I visited China in 1987 and one of the goals of this trip was to see how China had changed. I will tell this story using a small subset of the 750+ pictures and 30+ minutes of video I took. 

Please refer to the below for photos and videos from particular days of the trip
