The Great Wall of China

So I finally got to see the Great Wall of China and it was amazing. I got up around 7 in the morning to get on the bus heading for the wall. When I got there I took a cable car up to the top, the cable car was just a regular ski lift. At the top you had an amazing view of the surrounding area. From there on I climbed the steps up to the highest point on the wall. The steps were at times so steep they seemed more like a ladder. I could not help but think about the people who gave their lives building these steps 600 years ago. Or as the guide said, the people who had the honor of sacrificing their lives to protect China from the Mongolians. I do however have a feeling that their sacrifice was not voluntary. Either way, the world was a different place all those years ago.
