Today is the day that I was looking forward to the most in Beijing. The Great Wall of China has finally been crossed off my list of places I want to visit. This was something that a picture can never express. The size and the beauty of the surrounding mountains made this the best part of the trip so far. I am completely exhausted now after climbing all the steps up and down the hills. The weather today was very sunny and hot, but it was worth it for the perfect view.
Something that I thought was really interesting today was the bus ride from the city to the wall. I noticed many different signs with cartoon drawings of telling people not to drink and drive, talk on cell phone, and other laws. The reason I thought they were interesting was because of the picture that was with it. They all have the same character but they are doing different things in each picture.
The other thing I noticed on the drive over was a truck carrying fourteen other small trucks. Not only did this seem like not a good idea but it was really dangerous. It looked like the last few trucks were about to tip over. This was really weird to me that they would risk that much to deliver a few more trucks.
