Today, we visited the Great Wall of China, a structure so large that it can be seen from space. There are many different estimates about the length of the wall, but it curves around so much that its length is easily twice the distance between Massachusetts and California.
It was an amazing day, even though we had to climb hundreds of steps and were all dripping with sweat.The air here is so humid that even if the sun isn’t blaring down, it still feels very hot. I didn’t realize how high the wall really is! It took close to an hour to get onto the wall in the first place.
I didn’t make the journey alone. Here are some photo highlights of some friends I climbed with / inflated:
