the great wall

today i hiked the great wall - it was amazing!! exhausting, but definitely worth the trouble.

i was really lucky and our tour group was the only one hiking that particular section (tin shan ling to simatai). everyone who thinks walking on a wall is a piece of cake is wrong. for one it is not just straight but up and down and mostly extremly steep. the steps sometimes have erroded, so it is also quite dangerous. but other than that the view is amazing. so after 6 km, 22 watch tours and 2 hours i finally reached the end of our tour. it felt good to get some exercise while also walking on one of the most impressive man made structures in the world.
