(a continuation of our Beijing trip March 2014..)
During our 4 days in Beijing, we had a chance to visit the Great Wall of China.
It was quite a long drive (about 90 mins) before we reached our destination at around 9am.
A few street traders were just starting to open up shop.
Our guide/driver got us the aerial ropeway (cable-car) tickets while we walked around a bit at the entrance. It was still kinda deserted.
Going up! Hmm.. were we the only ones heading up? It was really quiet and surreal.
Looking back down to where we were..
Behold.. the Great Wall of China!
Look at that beautiful sight! Oh yeah, and the scenery is great too! 🙂
Raspberry looks back at history.. set in stone.. frozen in time..
We were so lucky to have had such blue skies on our trip. It made photo-taking a joy.
And before we knew it, it was time to head back down. The fast and furious way of course!
Well.. the experience was.. umm.. we survived.
Good thing we had an early start. It was 10.30am and there were about 40 people queueing for tickets at the entrance.
more of our Beijing trip to come..
