One of the most anticipated parts of our trip was a visit to the Great Wall. Rather than going to the area most frequently visited in Beijing, we drove out to a part of the Wall that includes a ski-lift style gondola to get to the Wall and a toboggan slide to get back down. The view was amazing, and the slide was a lot of fun too.
I thought I filmed my ride down, but I must have accidentally turned off the video. So, while the video below isn’t mine, it’s a close approximation compared to most of the others I viewed.
I’ll post more photos of the Great Wall tomorrow.
Part of our trip to China included a visit to a Chinese market. It was a lot of fun, especially since you get to bargain with the merchants to try to get a good price.
Most of the time, it was a fairly painless process, but when I was walking around with Josh, things got pretty crazy. Fortunately, I managed to catch some of it on video.
