Y is for Yangtze

The Yangtze. It’s an amazing river. I’ve never been there, but I’m a fan. Third longest in the world. Exotic. Big. Mythic. What more could someone want in a river? How about funky dolphins and giant turtles?

It turns out that, in a surprise unexpectedly revealed by basic research, there’s a four mile long bridge across the Yangtze that serves as a legendary spot for suicide. GQ published an article on it a few years ago. Surprised again.

It’s the river of eastern myth and history. And more. Some good. Some tragic.
