photoblog image 7 Days in China- II

7 Days in China- II

This is a shot from the great wall. I discovered how out of shape I was while climbing this unending stretch of wall. Not very fun if I must say so myself but it was breath taking. It took years to build this. Its a testament of how enduring humans can be.

i like that u travel and take pictures, I wish i could od that as well. maybe next year
E Etomi: Its fun but unfortunately I had to steal peoples cameras off them several times as I didn't have mine. It worked out okay in the end but I would have had extra fabulous ones if I had mine. I felt bad asking all the time.

Keep up the good work.

I can imagine it's not an easy trek. I see some other people needed a rest on the steps. Well worth it though I am sure.

The photo is wonderful. Shows a great perspective of the Great Wall.

Interestingly, I always thought it was wider and taller.

I am going to China next year, you are definitely setting the pace..
Lot of people, nice angle of view !
I've always wondered how the people built that thing. Nice shot Etomi, the angle was perfect
