Great Wall highlights.

Very Tired tonight. cant write too much. Great Wall was amazing. I about died trying to climb up to it. We went to a very remote area were no tourist go. We were to only ones there. Most poeple go to Badaling and the other one that starts with a M. Anyway, tour guide says that they are both, more rebuilt than actually true wall. So we went to this part of the wall and it was quite an expirence. Will blog more tommorrow morning. can't stay up.


  1. What an experience visiting the Great Wall must have been. I know we have been jabing at you for having such a "hard climb" but to be honest, I'm not sure any one of us would have done much better - except for Karen who according to you seems to be in fantastic shape! So glad you didn't go the traditional "tourist" route and ventured to the secluded area of the wall! Your pictures are fantastic! So tell us, did you manage to get a small piece of the wall into your pocket to bring home??? HA!

  2. Hahahaha!!!!! Believe me, I'm laughing WITH you, not AT you.....I feel your pain. I ran bleachers for months beforehand and it still didn't help.
