Photos from the Great Wall

Oh to be young, in love and walking on the Great Wall at Mutianyu in the Springtime. The Chinese were well known for their creative use of spirit-levels in the construction of the Great Wall. Flags at the entrance to the toboggan run at Mutianyu. Yep, it doesn't get any cooler (or tackier) than this. That's me, way down there - going down is actually harder than coming up. The brilliantly designed forts feature delightful vistas through medieval windows that allow for cross-breezes and ideal smoke-oh spots. Some guy tried to tell me that they used sticky rice instead of mortar in the construction of the Wall. Make of this what you will. Finally, an explanation for why Chinese people seem to have one leg longer than the other.
