... see the old part of the wall, and our tour guide said many people didn't go that far, so we thought, "We're only here once, let's make it count!"

So we got a couple of days off of school and Chinese workers got a few days off, ...

... you can think of. Watches (bought a couple), bags ( a couple of them too). Josh loved the bartering he wasn't keen to buy anything but when we got back he was the one who said when are we going back. He has plans to spend big. Went off to the night markets to eat. We plucked up courage to have silk worms on a stick. They were disgusting. Josh thought they were okay. Wall ...
