There are many books and treatises about this amazing country (or is it assemblage of countries?) country loaded with superlatives: one of the largest, most populated, most productive, with the largest growth rate, also most polluted,. But none gives the potential traveler the nuances that could make traveling there not only possible but also more pleasurable. There are many books about this marvelous country. But none gives the potential traveler the nuances that could make traveling there not only possible but also pleasurable.

Emperor, first one in ea. dinasty, not necessarily noble 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynasties_in_Chinese_history
More so, even for those of us that have maintained an interest in learning about China, there is an enormous deficiency in the knowledge of such enormous country, with an enormous population and a history that makes the Christian era look like a midget in the context of the archaic, antique, old, newer and contemporary history. When Paris was not even Lutecia or Lutetia[1] and Matchu Picchu was, already, an important aboriginal empire in South America,
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machu_Picchu ca. 1450],
  China was in its nth imperial dynasty, after already very long and established many other monarchical dynasties that extended unto centuries before the Christian era.[2]

During World War II, American pilot volunteers organized a squadron renowned as the invincible 'Flying Tigers' to airlift arms, weaponry and other war-time goods to help China in its struggles against Japanese aggressors. The US volunteers opened up a historical air corridor from India to the cities of Kunming and Chongqing in southwestern China via Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). The Flying Tigers flew out of Chongqing and the Japanese looked for months for an airstrip but could never find one. In the Yangtze River, there is a permanent sandbar, this is the 'airstrip' the Flying Tigers used. The Japanese never figured anyone would use this sandbar for an airstrip. Since 1991, the Chongqing Municipal Government has turned it into a museum, housing exhibits on General Stillwell and Americans in Chongqing during World War II.

    We were in Congqing recently and our guide told us that one reason the Tiger's base was difficult to detect was the fog. This area is nestled in mountains and along the Yangtze and more often than not there is thick fog. Our guide was happy and proud to share this part of history with us.

<Insert Fig. 1989_>Fig. 1989_. The famous "21 curves" [zigzag] highway in Annan, China, between ChanYi and Kweiyang illustrated in the interesting Flying Tigers museum in Chongqing, Peoples Republic of China.



 
Incidentally this is only one of many zig-zag roads in the world, built with the purpose of ____ the difficult slopes of terrain but also as a way to provide great exposure of vehicles and humans transiting through such strategic places.

Also useful and beautiful.

1979~



 
<insert Fig. 1979_ >Fig. 1979_. Zig zag road to the city of Namibe, formerly Moçamedes. (Resolution: 2112 x 1483 pixels). Photo by the author. Namibe is the capital city of the province of the same name, Popular Republic of Angola, nowadays simply the Republic of Angola.[ ]

 
 

<insert Fig. 1989_>Fig. 1989_. Map of the popular Republic of Angola, nowadays Republic of Angola. Map by Washington Post newspaper, USA.



 



MW: We arrive now to Angola.

TM: It was the People’s Republic of Angola. At the time and even nowadays, if one had the word, people, people’s or popular juxtaposed to the name of a country, one immediately knows that the peoples of such country are in great trouble and disarray.

MW: You came to Angola from Namibia, didn’t you?

TM: It was Dr. Barre who went to Angola and to Meridiana. Dr. Barre travelled in a convoy from the country of Namibia and via the city of Namibe, formerly Moçamedes (name changed by the MPLA), to the city of Lubango and from there to Lumbago, Meridiana. This is the road from and to Namibe. Such change contributed to the most frequent of confusions with the country of Namibia vs. the city of Namibe. The country of Namibia itself was the new name for the now independent formerly called South-West Africa and whose border is very few kilometers away from the, nowadays, city of Namibe in Angola. The road to Namibe, a zigzag road zippered to the mountain, constituted to Barre the most beautiful view ever. When Carmine’s convoy stopped in the cliff from which a global view of the road could be seen, with Ruth who had “discovered” this before and wanted to surprise him, he had to gasp for air. The road represented to Dr. Carmine Barre something like a set of multiple smiles in the face of the mountain. This road constituted one of the clue points in the war, and it was heavily guarded all over by the MPLA who had established a post in each of the commissural tips of the smiles. The author, from the moment he saw this view and took this picture, thought that it was the perfect emblem of what scientific research in developing countries is and was: arduous, difficult like this steep slope, and full of risks, with marked deviations from a purely central tendency or from the straight line.



 



<insert Fig. 1979_>Fig. 1979_. The "21 curves" [zigzag or zig zag] highway in Annan, China, between ChanYi and Kweiyang. Photograph of a photograph by Maria Gabriela Rueda. [The word "curves" in the original picture at the musem shows a correction by hand.]



 
 
Incidentally this is only one of several zig-zag roads in the world, built with the purpose of climb the difficult slopes of terrain but also as a way to provide great exposure of vehicles and humans transiting through such strategic places. Illustrated above is the interesting "21 curves" [zigzag] highway in Annan, China, between ChanYi and Kweiyang. The original photograph was identified by the author as part of the Flying Tigers museum in Chongqing, Peoples Republic of China. Also useful and beautiful. In its spectacularity it has been even been utilized in auto parts advertising:[ ]

There's no mistaking the fact that this one is about the CBI as the Burma Road is the featured subject. The top of this B.F. Goodrich ad contains a photo of the famous 21 Curves at Annan, China (sometimes called the 24-zig).

The ad states:
"The Burma Road is an incredible highway. It's a 700-mile corkscrew twisting perilously through jagged mountain ranges. It's narrow, unpaved, 'Scratched out of the mountains with their fingernails,' as an American engineer described it. Yet this road with its treacherous curves and steep grades, often blocked by landslides and pockmarked by bombs, soon earned the name of 'China's Lifeline.'

Many interesting photos of this part of the Burma Road exist, all from a similar angle. Apparently this photo was taken while there was no traffic on the road, as the trucks navigating the lower part of the curves appear to be drawn-in!

The terminology of “'China's Lifeline” refers to the role this amazing road played in the provision of supplies to China during the Japanese blockade, in the preambles of the WWII. Such was one of the life-saving roles that the heroic Flying Tigers played was in protecting this road from the air.[ ]
