... it was first built, and did not become the "Great" wall until the Qin Dynasty. Emperor Qin Shihuang succeeded in his effort to have the walls joined together to fend off the invasions from the Huns in the north. Since then, the Wall has served as a monument of the Chinese nation throughout history.
Finally we were back in Beijing at about 13.30. My mum and I felt quite sick as we had been struggling with strong sore throat and irritative cough for the last few days. However, ...

A really friendly guy who spoke very little English, he kept telling us in Chinese that the wall was very high up and the toboggan coming down goes very fast by using hand gestures. He dropped us off at the start, bought all of our tickets for us and then went for a sleep in his car, telling us to come back 3 hours later. Bob had advised us to go first thing in the morning when it just opens ...
