逝者如斯 #1 Origin of Yangtze River

"Time passes on just like the flowing water in the river ,not ceasing day or night!"

 

-- Analects of Confucius

 

The Chang Jiang (长江) or Yangtze River is the largest river in China and the third longest in the world after the Nile and the Amazon. It flows 6 300 km from its source in western Qinghai province, north of Tibet, to the East China sea at Shanghai. During the 40 million years history of the life and 50,000 years history of human civilization, Yangtze River, a mother river of the Chinese people,brings up billions of Huaxia(华夏子孙) people.

I took this photo through glass-window of a moving train from Beijing to Tibet, it was taking on the so called " First Bridge" of the river - The origin of Yangtze River
