It has been 3 days and we have acclimatized well with the weather.
The plan was to go outskirt Beijing, traveled north; one and half hour away to Badaling.
Our destination --- The Great Wall.
Yes, the one of the seven wonders.....

Being there yourself, watching with your naked eyes and climbing the steps whilst catching the last breath, was really a thrilling experience. felt like riding a long mighty dragon …
(a 6000km dragon!)
Couldn’t manage myself to cover all but at least I was 900m on sea level. Ok le tuh!

I just can’t imagine how the wall was built at first.
How many have fall then in order to let us walk and value it later…
Did it stand as a symbol of emperor’s supremacy?
or was it just a sheer defence wall to protect the Hans and its empire?!
Were those men sacrifices worthy? ……

In the end we have to make our way back.. but we were made to leave with heavy hearts
and I promised myself to come again.. this time maybe with some answers.

Next stop were Ming Tombs and Summer Palace. Those places were breathtaking and I could not stop myself capturing the beautiful scenes with my Nikon.. sedar-sedar 3 roll films dah habis, beb!
