great wall was great
Well, it's crazy that today was the last day of our 6 month long trip! I'm really excited to be heading back home, but really not excited at the same time. It's a strange feeling. I won't go into all of it right now because it's 2:30AM in Beijing and I need to go to bed. Maybe one of these days I'll write a general conclusion of my experiences and some things I've learned... but then again, maybe not! If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you know I much prefer photos over words.
But anyway, what a way to finish it with a 10km 4 hour hike on the Great Wall of China today! Mike, Andrea, Bethany and I all got up early (thanks Andrea!) and took a series of buses and taxis to an area of the wall that is a bit further, but much less touristy than the most popular place where everyone goes. Apparently at the touristy place, it's impossible to get a photo of the wall without several other people in your photo... so that didn't sound ideal for us.
We had quite the opposite experience and only saw a total of about 10 other people during our 4 hours of hiking!
We finished up with an awesome Chinese dinner, yum.
USA here we come!
PS- Bethany got some incredible photos and wrote all about our recent Annapurna Circuit Trek, check it out!
