Great Wall

Today we joined the masses on an excursion to the Great Wall. We walked 7km of the Simatai section to avoid the worst of the crowds and weren't disappointed. The wall was stunning and we managed to get ahead of the pack and briefly get the place to ourselves.

We only fell victim to one of the many local sellers, a wiry 74 year old who walks three hours each day to his favourite spot high on the wall.
