The Great Wall.
Visiting The Great Wall is a once in a lifetime experience. I can’t imagine coming all the way to China and not having seen it. What an amazing, breathtaking sight. Due to the mist and fog in the mountain, my camera does not do the true scene justice. The view was so beautiful. The lush green mountains and the winding wall.
We actually took the cable car up to a certain section of The Wall and then continued up from there. The wall was very steep and difficult to walk up. Some people were helping very old parents up that wall like it was something they had dreamed of doing and now they finally were there at 80 +
We are so glad we did this! Oh and yes, and for my friends from work who are following along, yes, we are doing a “Hoop Step” on The Wall! That was not easy because people in China STARE at me and my blonde hair as if I am an unusual fascination. So I kept telling Jacob, “you know that idea we had about doing a photo of the Hoop on the The Wall, I just cant’ because the people won’t stop staring at me!” So we almost didn’t do it, ;but there was this little “off shoot” wall of the The Wall and not as many people were there so we did it and another post from the Hoop show. The people stared more, LOL.
