Our language school’s glorious annual camping trip on the Great Wall, about 45 minutes outside Jìxiàn (蓟县).
We arrived, ate lunch on the Wall, hiked down off the wall to a nearby village (photos), returned, pitched the tents (Jessica and I slept under the stars- er, clouds), and had dinner together. The next morning we ate, left all our stuff on the bus, and hiked along the Wall for about two hours to Huángyáguān (黄崖关), a big restored walled town that’s now a major tourist attraction.
For one of our teachers it was his first time to ever visit the Great Wall. It’s always fun to get to spend this much non-classroom time with the teachers. (34 photos.)
