Today was the day we visited the Great Wall of China. It was an exhilarating and exhausting day. In order to get to the entrance of the wall, we had to get had to take a ski life. We spent around four hours on top of the wall, so everyone got a lot of exercise and great pictures. I was able to climb to the peak on both sides of the entrance. Between each climb, we had a picnic lunch just outside of the entrance of the wall. Overall, it was a great experience and definitely lived up to the hype.
Getting back down from the great wall was also a lot of fun. We made our way down by taking a sort of luge. Once we all made it down, we spent a little while shopping for souvenirs. It was a good opportunity for all of us to try and bargain with the vendors.
For dinner we at a restaurant close to our hotel. I think it was my favorite meal so far on the trip. It was the first meal that had a few dishes with a good amount of spice to them. I am looking forward to what tomorrow will bring, because so far it has been a really great trip.
