Beijing

At the end of October 2009 our family traveled to Beijing for just over a week.

This Beijing T-shirt, one of the nicest I found, was on sale (extremely cheap) in our hotel giftshop.

I Climbed the Great Wall of China

At the end of October 2009 our family traveled to Beijing for just over a week. The high point of the visit, of course, was the Great Wall of China.

We visited the Wall at Badaling, the most popular destination for tours. Sadly, we were only given three hours to climb on the Wall, as our guide was anxious to get us to a silk factory or some similar venue where she would get a commission for everything we bought.

I bought this T-shirt from a woman vendor on the Wall itself.
