Long overdue Great Wall picturesPosted on 2007.01.20 at 17:24
We conquered the un-conquerable. (Note the graffiti near my shoulder--those people should be shot....Mao style!)
This is a fully excavated section of the wall.
This is an un-excavated section being over-grown.
Another un-excavated section. There were signs all over the place saying not to go down this way, but every idiot that came along did just that. I hate that so much. It's not just a matter of safety, it's also a matter of conserving this precious historical site. I could care less if those idiots fell off and killed themselves, but it pisses me off that they didn't have any respect for the cultural value of the wall.
The camera wasn't tilted, this is just how steep the wall was at certain points. It was quite a hike to get up there, even with stairs.
This shows how wide the wall is at the top.
