Beijing - The Great Wall

We had 2 days at sea and then arrived at the port closest to Beijing. We had booked our own tour here and it was lovely to meet Adrian, our guide, and the driver at the port. The sign with our name on it was very welcome. We then drove the three hours to the Great Wall. It was very interesting to see all the development in the countryside and to see the smog too. We went to the Mutianya part of the wall which was really good as there were less tourists and you got up to the wall on this chairlift.
 Here we are on the Great wall of China. It was so amazing to actually be here.
 I walked a fair way up and down the stairs but Bruce went much further and took some amazing photos.

Today we head to Hiroshima. We have enjoyed our few days in Osaka.
