I woke at the crack of dawn and pulled the blinds hoping to see the blue skies that I had gotten used to. I was dumbstruck. I couldn't see the building which was 20 feet away. It looked like peas soup.
My spirit was dashed, but my hopes were high. I told myself that there was no way I am going back to the States without going to the Great Wall. I had told everyone that I was going to send them a picture from the great wall. “I am going to the Great Wall.”
My ride was delayed by a couple of hours but I was on my way to the Great Wall. As we rode along my Guide gave me a quick lesson on the history of the Great Wall. We finally arrived at the Wall.
It was still overcast but clearing up. We rode the lift to one of the stations on the wall from which we were to continue the WALK. As we walked up the Wall the clouds just rolled away. An amazing view of clear blues appeared in the horizon as far as the eyes could see. The Great wall is truly one of the world’s AMAZING WONDER.
