These galleries are from a 3 week tour of mainland China we completed in April - May 2009.  The tour covered all the major interest points in China and was, in many ways, our most fascinating trip to date.  Our impression of China changed completely after we saw the many modern developments that have happened in that country in just the last 10 - 20 years.

I used a new software product to make the China galleries.  Each gallery contains slideshow software with user-controlled timing. Each gallery index page has a blog entry where comments can be posted.  Clicking on the left, right, or center area of each image will load the previous, next, or index page respectively. Clicking Help at the bottom of each page displays a pop-up help window.  

Also, most of the galleries have a number of panorama images that tend to be large and require horizontal scrolling (and vertical in the Shanghai gallery) to see them all.  The entire set of galleries is designed for a screen size of 1024 x 768 pixels, so if you are running with a smaller screen you will have to do some extra scrolling.
