Ever since I first saw Disney's Mulan as a 12 year old, I wanted to visit the Great Wall of China. The day my wish would come true, had finally arrived. EEEEEK!
Located 70 km northeast of central Beijing is one of the best-preserved parts of the wall called Mutianyu. I had paid for the bus ride back and forth, lunch, entrance ticket to the Wall, and an "English-speaking" guide...
"We are in China, welcome." "We are going to see the great wall." "Are you clear?" where the parts I understood and heard from the Chinese girl shouting in the microphone. I think she liked those three sentences, because she kept on repeating them... we are in China haha... No shit, Sherlock.
Most of my group took the cable car to the top, but me and two German guys wanted to walk.
Jan and Toni were great company on the Wall. We left our mark in one of the watchtowers, and Toni took his last cigarette there. Motivation, he said.
Anyways, I'VE BEEN TO THE GREAT WALL!
