Admiring the Great Wall



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

I shared a version of this picture on my blog, but I couldn't resist posting it here as well. I took this picture of the young Chinese family on the Great Wall in 1990. They seemed as impressed with Wall as I was.

They are heros of the Great Wall, this is the reason why they were so delighted.

I'm not at all surprised that they are surprised. ;-) The wall is a remarkable achievement.

In my thinking this is one of the most amazing achievements ever...but the sacrifices that were made by so many were also great.
I can see why anyone seeing this wall would just stop and stare....and sip!

What a nice portrait of a handsome family. I'm glad they were getting out to learn about and see the vast beauty of their own country.

What a lovely family picture. I would love to see the Great Wall in person but chances of that are slim to none!
