Great Wall

In China there is a wall, and it is long. I spent some of my time in China walking it.

All of it.

Okay, when I say ‘all’ I mean ‘all I would care to do’. I spent about 3 hours up there, with a bit of sun, and a large backpack. It was pretty tiring to be honest.

Now, I know it must have taken a long time, and it is a stunning piece of work when you think about just how long it is. However I have to wonder why there isn’t consistency in the way it’s built. Part of it features ramp, part of it feature small steps, part of it features really big steps. I don’t know why they just couldn’t use small steps the whole way.

Still, I’m really pleased that I decided to make the trip out there to see it, and would certainly advise that if you’re opting to go for the easy to get to touristy spots, then you go on a weekday and do so very early in the morning.

  1. Yes sir, I would go! Your point of view here, looking up instead of down, is quite refreshing! Most shots are looking from a peak point down and this makes yours different, which I like! Nicely processed too! Well done!
