        ... 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 ...

        Had a couple of javas [limited effect] and then pan fried sliced bread for toast. The packing went well and we were off at the appointed 0800 time. Dave was fretting re his small backpack and his Ipod; take care of your stuff, geezer!

        ... tourist attraction, and to this day, it is a traveller’s dream to walk the wall.

        Travelling on the Silk Road, we got our first Glimpses of the Great Wall at Jiayuguan. The Jiayuguan fort is known as the final frontier, where ancient China ended and Central Asia began.
