Northern Hot Springs

Chongqing Municipality Scenes

5. Northern Hot Springs

We visited this park in 1985. Bernice and I asked to go swimming in the hot pool. This caused the Chinese officials to go into a meeting to decide what to do. Apparently no foreigners had ever asked to go into the pool before. They were in a quandary as what to do. They asked us to have dinner while they decided how to handle such a request. After dinner they came to us and said we could go into the pool but we were not to use the public dressing areas and showers. They gave us a private area for this. One for Paul and one for Bernice. It was a pleasant swim and there were many people in the pool.
