it’s one of those things that is just worth all the hype. standing on the great wall of china felt entirely surreal and totally amazing – it’s impossible to describe. we had so much fun exploring and glenn took a lot of photos of us :)
^^ we went up to the great wall via cable car, and we came down via slide! i can’t believe i didn’t take any photos of the slide – i’ll have to post a video later! it was super fun.
^^ so excited to be there!!! ^^
^^ there were tons of blossoms potting out all over (you can see them spotting the mountainsides in the pictures below. so lovely! ^^
^^ we heart glenn. this was right after he sang to us for a little bit. ^^
^^ we told glenn to do a crazy pose. this is what we got. (yes, i know i look scary.) ^^
^^ can you spot the boy peeking out on the right?! ^^
^^ more excited poses. i mean, it’s the great wall of china!!! ^^
^^ we saw this sign after taking a video of ourselves sprinting along the wall. oops! ^^
^^ these pictures give you some idea of how incredibly steep the wall is in some places…but you can’t really tell in a photograph. it was almost like a ladder in some places. so amazing to think of this structure being built hundreds of years ago. ^^
we got to walk a little on the more rubble-y part of the wall (only sections of it have been kept up for visitors), which was really cool. can you see the line of the wall on the mountain behind me? seriously amazing. ^^
^^ the boy pondering about history and humanity ^^
yes – worth all the hype.
