We boarded smaller river boats for our trip up Longman
Gorge

This is what our home ship, the Anna looks like fore and aft
looks like
 

A view of our smaller river boat.  Actually this is a sister
boat carrying another contingent of our tour.  The French Canadians
perhaps?
We came across this “house boat” with a happy family aboard. 
Don’t know if they were on a outing or living there. 
Obviously the boat has been around for a while. 
Note the exposed flywheel on the ancient diesel engine.
Obviously we were also getting our photo taken

An official sign warning of bear, monkeys, alligator, snakes or just pointing the way to the toilet? and some graffiti high up on the cliff.  Have no idea what either may say.   If anyone remembers, please let me know and I will add it.

Spotted this cave on the cliff.  On closer inspection it is obvious that it has been improved.  Is someone living in it?

Obviously these riverside dwellings are inhabited. 
Perhaps by those that wanted to remain on the river
rather than be relocated into beehive relocation apartments.
Obviously both were happy.  One set waving and the other
playing a trumpet for us.

It is impossible to depict in photos the massiveness of the cliffs that surrounded up on this side trip up Longman Gorge.
