"W"- Wall.... The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China. They began construction as early as the 7th century BC. Most of the wall was rebuilt during the Ming Dynasty.
I visited the Great Wall while working in Beijing during the weeks leading to the Olympics. We took a short drive to the wall. It kills me that I cannot recall the exact section I visited. I suggest for your travel junkies to start keeping a journal when you travel. So when you look back, you can recall the great times.
There are your typical tourist stuff at the wall, you can have you picture taken with people in costume and at different sections of the wall. Each of the "actors" request a little money to pose with you. It isn't very expensive and probably less so when the olympics are not in session.
Beijing has a lot to offer for you to see. If you are already in China, you should make the trip out to the Wall.
The A to Z is almost done. Keep up the good work and come back and visit anytime.
