The Great Wall

In five years of travel in China this is the first time I’ve gone to the Great Wall. After first visiting the Ming Tombs we arrived at the Ba da ling part of the Great Wall. Wow. It is spectacular. I knew it would require some climbing but it was steeper than I expected.

We returned in the afternoon and traveled to the north sector of town to eat at a Xinjaing Uiger (Muslim) restaurant – another incredible meal. Afterwards we covered a lot of Beijing taking the subway and walking over ten miles.
