today was another fantastic day. We began teh day eating a wonderful breakfast at our hotel. then ur real adventure began. After baout a two hour long bus ride we arrived we arrived at the the parking lot for the Great Wall. Since he wall was at the top of the hill we had to take chairlifts to the top . Once to the The actuall wall looking over the horion was absolutely breathtaking. Wespent a few hours walking to the different tower up and down stairs. words couldnt describe just being there and getting to see what I had only previously seen in books. After we were done wlking we went down to the liitel shops and got a chance to do some bargaining with the locals. Getting a t-shirt for 15 Juan is a pretty good deal. We then all boarded the bus and wnet t o apottery making place. and got a tour from one of the employees. we then went to the gift shops where there were beautifu pieces of finished pottery for us to buy. Even though we spent quite a bit of money it was definitely worth it. After that we went to dinner, and like usual we ate a ton of really ood food. After that the rest of the night we got an opportunity to hang out before bedtime. A satisfying day would be a conservative way of saying how the day went. I'd say more like a once in a lifetime experience !!!
