Today was the most fun and productive day I've had in a while. Having waking up early, Danny, Alex, and I went to walk to Tiananmen Square in the morning. The amount of people there in the morning was surprising, and the walk there was an adventure.
Climbing up the Great wall was really fun. Especially climbing on top of the watch towers, and sprinting a few of the sections. Surprisingly, I was bursting with energy and just wanted to run, and even now at 3:30 AM I kind of want to go running still.
Visiting the small pottery factory was very interesting. The amount of labor and precision that goes in to some of China's crafts still amazes me.
After dinner, a few of us went out for the night, but that's a story for another time.
Here are a few highlight pictures of the day:
Ol' Mike taking a bit of a breather
Brian hanging out with a kid we met on the wall
A little girl taking a photo of her mom
