The Great Wall

Today we went to The Great Wall.  There is an old saying here, “Not been on the Great Wall, not a great man”. We came on the perfect day. It was absolutely gorgeous. I was so happy to be out there. We hiked to 22 towers and I think could have done 22 more. It was incredible.

We could not have asked for a better day. While it was hot… there was also a really nice breeze.

Today, my toes were at The Great Wall. And they were very happy about that!

Now, I’m gonna leave y’all with one thing — ROLL TIDE. Is it football season, yet???

Today I am thankful for: my grandfather’s 90th birthday. Grampy is 90 today. I wish I could be there to celebrate with him. I am also thankful for my wonderful friends — this time last year, I lost one. AND I am thankful for my certain someone. Happy you-know-what day. I love you, babe. You rock my world.

    • Hey TR, sorry I’m just now getting back to you. We just got back to Shanghai.

      My roommate recommended this company: Beijing Downtown Backpackers Accommodation
      This is what they have to say about the section that we hiked: Jinshanling Great Wall and Simatai Great Wall are the two most ruined,precipitous, original, preserved sections of the Great Wall in Beijing. The hike from the west Jinshanling to the east Simatai is the most challenging Great Wall hikes in Beijing. The 6-km hike takes about 3.5 hours, passing 22 watch towers.

      I’ll do a more in depth post later. Talk to you soon!
