This is the point where the Huanghe makes a right angle turn and lurches eastward, and where the Wei River flowing from Xian joins it. It is a massive expanse of flowing water, a half mile across, and speeding along at 6 knots. On the shore is a moored ferry which has been converted to a restaurant. Motorboats with Yamaha outboards, take a few visitors on half hour spins up the river to where the Wei waters mix with those of the Huanghe.

In the silence of sunset enjoy fresh steamed catfish soup and think of Huck Finn drifting down the Mississippi.
