The Great Wall
So I am here in China working. Had an opportunity to visit the Great Wall. They are not kidding it is a very, very, very long wall. Way up in the mountains. On our day off, two buddies and I hire a driver. His name, Jack Leo. He picks us up from the hotel and off we go. So we hire the car and have to pay the tolls and parking and everything along the way. We stop by a pottery and buy a few things for the significant others and family, then to the wall we go. If you ever get the chance, make sure you get the toboggan ride down from the top. Its worth the extra $6. For the most part the weather was good. You have to walk through the gauntlet of vendors to reach the gate, then you ride a lift to the top.
It was loads of fun, and now I have seen it.
