What I found sad was that he still had his bodyguards and even when he went up to collect food, a dark suited, burly chap with an earpiece hovered nearby and moved around after him and not that discretely really.

Above the horn and screeching tyres I managed to ascertain that the wall is 2000 years old, cost 1m lives to build (longest tomb) and can't actually be seen from space. The most striking fact was that when the wall was first begun, 2m workers we're employed to build it. That's not an issue for modern China with 1.3bn inhabitants, but at that time this was 1/5th of the population. As I said earlier in this post, it seems ...
