They really carve amazing sculptures out of those jade stones

UCAC atop the wall!
The celebration of 30 years of good relations between Japan and China
The Great Wall a.k.a. "Ten Thousand Li Wall" - about 5000 kilometers (3000 US miles)
On our way up...
Chinese women seem to enjoy having their picture taken with the tourists...
The wall makes a slight drop here! (but there is a way around)
An older part of the wall, in ruins
The Great Wall is really built on rugged mountains
Some parts are pretty steep with high steps
The Japanese and Chinese boys of the celebration posing
it's all about looking cool
Lighting up the wall at night
Out of film!
selling it again
Then, off to the silk factory!
Off to the Ming tombs (after China's third emperor during the Ming dynasty)
All the way in, through all the gates and portals, you can climb the innermost building and get a nice view.
Enjoying that view
At the center of the innermost building, there was a stone stretching towards the sky
How do those trees manage to hang on to the wall??

This is - believe it or not - a grand piano!
