Wow, what a day!!

To be able to see one of the 7 Wonders of the World, well, it’s breathtaking!

And then to hear the story of how it was built, is tragic and sobering….

We went to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall.

It was unbelievable!!  If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 100 times!  We are on the trip of a lifetime!!  How blessed are we?!

We rode a cable car up to the wall and rode a toboggan on the way down!  It was fun!!!

I have attached a video of Jeremy’s ride down, well, a portion of his ride down!!  The cable car up was several minutes long and didn’t want to load!!  So we’ll show you at a later date, when it’s finished downloading to Vimeo.  🙂

I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story!

Needless to say, it was a great day!
