The Great Wall

Our trip to the Great Wall was wonderful.  For about the same price as going with a big tour, we had our own driver and guide who spoke almost perfect English.  We left about 9:30 a.m. and drove for almost two hours to get to the Great Wall.

The weather in Beijing has been similar to home with very little snow this winter and odd temperatures. It was a beautiful day and I think everyone had the same idea we did about going to the Great Wall. Our guide was really surprised how many people were there for this time of year.
The sun was sooo bright, but the weather was gorgeous.

  1. We loved the wall. Of course, we had to climb with snow on the steps in December! Fun isn't it?

  2. It's great to see you finally in China!! Glad you are having a good trip so far :)

  3. Hi, Stacey!
    I will be thinking of you tomorrow night as you meet Jayden, but you know I'm really waiting for Tuesday when you meet Seth. I hope you get to at least see Lucky and Ned, if only briefly. I wonder too if you'll be allowed to give Lucky our letter and photos....
    Best wishes from the Cavenders!
