While in Beijing we also went with Paul and Anna to see the Great Wall of China – one of the Seven Wonders of the World! I don’t know why but before we left home the one place I wanted to see was the Great Wall of China. Maybe it is because of the movies like; Karate Kid and Kung Fu Panda. There are different parts of the wall that are available for tourists. The part of the wall we went to was called Mutianyu. The cool thing about this place was that you could climb up stairs to get to the top or take… a ski lift. We chose the ski lift and to hike along the top of the wall. We are glad we did because even after the ski lift the walk was really long and hard, there is so much to see. After hiking through parts of the wall that are really in good condition we hiked to another area where the wall was a bit broken down but we kept on going into a “non-tourist” area and there was no wall left just little pieces of the wall here and there. The wall had a lot of stairs to climb up and down as you went along.
One of the really fun things about the wall was going down. When we went down we got to TOBOGGAN, YEAH it was ssooo much fun except there was an older lady in front of me (no it isn’t my mom jeez why would you think that she was even old… just kidding just don’t tell her that EVER) and when we finished 15 minutes later (it was supposed to be only 5 minutes lol) this lady was like OMG I went ssssssooooooo fast she was so proud of herself. Okay enough with this slow lady. After that we went to a restaurant that was pretty good. And that my friends was the Great Wall of China!
