no, not THE great wall. but still pretty darn neat in my opinion. Xi'an still has most of it's city wall intact and it's quite nice to rent a bike and circle the city. Or like Joe and I, just walk.
It was bloody hot that day. Nice, but hot.

Walking along the wall at sunset was fantastically beautiful.

I wanted this to be the perfect picture. It was so beautiful with the hot dry desert air that had just cooled from a 90degree day to something quite pleasant. The wind was in the flags and the lights along the wall were glowing.
Knowing what I know now I would have set up the camera so that I wasn't touching it, set a long exposure, low ISO and used the 2 sec wait. Next time....
