The Largest Dam in the world:

image
This trip the Three Gorge Dam Project was a really awesome experience, because, as with the Great Wall, it fulfilled a dream of mine - to see this project.

Unfortunately, this dam is causing 1.3 million people to relocate and destroying a lot of Chinese heritage in the process. On the other hand, it is going to alleviate the electricity shortage for the growing Chinese economy and also control the Yangtze flooding problems. When it is completed, it will be the largest dam in the world. I was truly amazed at the size of the project.
