The Great Wall




(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This is a section of the Great Wall as seen from the top of Badaling pass, north of Beijing. This particular section of the wall has been restored and gives a good idea of the immensity and grandeur of the wall. I apologize for the lack of clarity -- this picture is scanned from a slide made in 1990.

That is a most amazing structure, especially considering how long ago it was built.
