Second Day of Sights

We still didn't sleep great last night but its getting better. We started out this morning at a jade factory then off to climb a section of the Great Wall. We had the option of a steep Northern route or a busier southern route. The guide gave us two hours to tour and it took almost all the time to reach the top of the steeper route visible from the parking lot. It was almost all stairs and they are purposely not even so intruders would stumble if trying to sneak up in the evenings. They recently used google earth to estimate it runs 5,000 miles.

Another family style lunch then a trip to see the 2008 Olympic stadium "the birds best".

We then went to an acrobat show and bade it back to the hotel about 7:30. Tomorrow we have to be Oakes and ready to leave by 7:15 to catch our flight.

So time to get packing ... Literally

What an incredible adventure... I can't imagine the excitement coursing through your veins! Everyday is better and better, although a little sleep would be nice too. ;)
