First Glimpse of the Great Wall
(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)
The photo above is my first glimpse of the Great Wall of China. The picture was taken from a bus in 1987. Our hosts were taking us from Beijing to the gate in the wall at Badaling. I spotted this segment of the wall as our bus climbed into the mountains north of Beijing.
The picture above was scanned from a slide.
