... 2 east and west gates represent the legs. The wall was originally made out of mostly compacted dirt, but was revamped hundreds of years later. I can't remember the exact date but the wall has remained intact for 600 years to the present day.

We were quite lucky because one of the local guys let us sit on his seat, thus it was four of us sharing 3 seats for a while. The guy got off the train after 3 hours and we thought we would be able to occupy his seat for the rest of the ride.
