... that much was actually in pretty good shape. This gate in the Great Wall is much more recent (Ming/Qin dynasty) than the Yanguang (Han dynasty) we saw yesterday. One striking feature in the old pictures is how bare the land used to be. Now there are many more trees along the Great Wall. The reason is simple. At the construction of the wall, many trees were used as firewood to bake the bricks for the wall. Now the wall is maintained by ...

Sat with Kristen for the final ride back to the parking lot. She hates 'truck politics'. Hey, it's a reality. Off by 1245, wolfing down the sandwich. Took the chance to do the day's blog to date as some slept. Shannon pointed out a high speed train. The terrain was rather spartan to this tired traveler.

    ... Let's build a lego fort and make it as modern as we can, with heaps of tourist tat, and the most annoying music we can find.' They succeeded. Having forked out a ridiculous $20 entry fee, I forced myself to wander within the walls for half an hour, earplugs in place, having a severe attack of grumpy-old-woman-itis.

    ... are a bit puzzling: at one point we are exhorted to walk gracefully round the grounds and not to smear (?).

    We go on another wall walk, this time in a landscape of browns. Here the construction is of compacted clay and straw, as these were the easily available materials. We climb steeply under a dome of shimmering sky and sun to the last watch-tower, looking out over a vast plain on one side: here we can see tanks on a military training area as well as a ...
