Jingzhou, 2002

Jingzhou is a city of moderate size in Hubei province, on the road from Yichang to Wuhan. In ancient times is was the capital of the state of Chu. It has been significantly touched by the outside world, but not as extensively as the major cities. The guide who was in charge of our tour group had been considering just taking the group through it without stopping, until a local guide assured him that yes, there was one restaurant in Jingzhou which would be a suitable place to take a group of American tourists.
